Jeremiah 16:10-13; Jeremiah 16:20
“When you tell the people all these things, they will ask, ‘Why has the decreed such terrible things against us? What have we done to deserve such treatment? What is our sin against the our God?’
“Then you will give them the ’s reply: ‘It is because your ancestors were unfaithful to me. They worshiped other gods and served them. They abandoned me and did not obey my word.
And you are even worse than your ancestors! You stubbornly follow your own evil desires and refuse to listen to me.
So I will throw you out of this land and send you into a foreign land where you and your ancestors have never been. There you can worship idols day and night—and I will grant you no favors!’
Can people make their own gods? These are not real gods at all!”
