8 They have quickly turned aside from the way which I commanded them. They have made for themselves a cast metal calf, and have worshiped it and have sacrificed to it and said, ‘[a]This is your god, Israel, who brought you up from the land of Egypt!’”
15 otherwise you might make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they would prostitute themselves with their gods and sacrifice to their gods, and someone might invite you [a]to eat of his sacrifice,
37 They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons, 38 And shed innocent blood, The blood of their sons and their daughters Whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; And the land was defiled with the blood. 39 So they became unclean in their [a]practices, And [b]were unfaithful in their deeds.
40 Therefore the anger of the Lord was kindled against His people, And He loathed His [c]inheritance. 41 So He handed them over to the [d]nations, And those who hated them ruled over them. 42 Their enemies also oppressed them, And they were subdued under their [e]power. 43 Many times He would rescue them; They, however, were rebellious in their plan, And they sank down into their guilt.
44 Nevertheless He looked at their distress When He heard their cry; 45 And He remembered His covenant for their sake, And [f]relented according to the greatness of His mercy. 46 He also made them objects of compassion In the presence of all their captors.
47 Save us, Lord our God, And gather us from the nations, To give thanks to Your holy name And glory in Your praise. 48 Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, From everlasting to everlasting. And all the people shall say, “Amen.” [g]Praise [h]the Lord!
