They served their idols,
which became a snare to them.
 They sacrificed their sons
and their daughters to the demons;
 they poured out innocent blood,
the blood of their sons and daughters,
whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan,
and the land was polluted with blood.
 Thus they became unclean by their acts,
and played the whore in their deeds.
 Then the anger of the LORD was kindled against his people,
and he abhorred his heritage;
 he gave them into the hand of the nations,
so that those who hated them ruled over them.
 Their enemies oppressed them,
and they were brought into subjection under their power.
 Many times he delivered them,
but they were rebellious in their purposes
and were brought low through their iniquity.
 Nevertheless, he looked upon their distress,
when he heard their cry.
 For their sake he remembered his covenant,
and relented according to the abundance of his steadfast love. (ESV)
