like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young,1 that spreads its wings to catch them and carries them on its pinions.212
The LORD alone led3 him;4 no foreign god was with him.513
He made him ride on the heights6 of the land and fed him with the fruit of the fields. He nourished him with honey from the rock,7 and with oil8 from the flinty crag,
with curds and milk from herd and flock and with fattened lambs and goats, with choice rams of Bashan9 and the finest kernels of wheat.10 You drank the foaming blood of the grape.1115
Jeshuruna12 grew fat13 and kicked; filled with food, he became heavy and sleek. He abandoned14 the God who made him and rejected the Rock15 his Savior.
They made him jealous16 with their foreign gods and angered17 him with their detestable idols.
They sacrificed18 to demons,19 which are not God-- gods they had not known,20 gods that recently appeared,21 gods your fathers did not fear.
You deserted the Rock, who fathered you; you forgot22 the God who gave you birth.
The LORD saw this and rejected them23 because he was angered by his sons and daughters.2420
"I will hide my face25 from them," he said, "and see what their end will be; for they are a perverse generation,26 children who are unfaithful.2721
They made me jealous28 by what is no god and angered me with their worthless idols.29 I will make them envious by those who are not a people; I will make them angry by a nation that has no understanding.30
