And it shall come to pass, when thou shalt shew this people all these words, and they shall say unto thee, Wherefore hath the LORDpronounced all this greatevil against us? or what is our iniquity? or what is our sin that we have committed against the LORD our God?11
Then shalt thou say unto them, Because your fathers have forsaken me, saith the LORD, and have walkedafterothergods, and have served them, and have worshipped them, and have forsaken me, and have not kept my law;12
And ye have doneworse than your fathers; for, behold, ye walk every oneafter the imaginationa of his evilheart, that they may not hearken unto me:
Therefore will I cast you out of this land into a land that ye know not, neither ye nor your fathers; and there shall ye serveothergodsday and night; where I will not shew you favour.
