Jeremiah 2:5-7 The Voice (VOICE)

Eternal One: What happened between us?
        What could I have done to your ancestors that was so wrong, so unfair?
    Why would they pull away from Me
        to pursue the empty worship of idols that has left them just as empty?
    They didn’t think to say, “Where is the Eternal who rescued us from slavery in Egypt?
        Where is the One who led us through the wilderness—a land of deserts and ravines?”
    No one seems to remember how they crossed a scorched and lifeless land,
        a darkness none had ever crossed before, a place where none survive.
    I am the One who delivered you into this land of abundance
        to enjoy its fruits and many good things.
    But you have now taken the very land I gave you and defiled it.
        You have done a most disgusting thing with this gift I reserved only for you.
