16 mThey provoked him to jealousy with strange gods,
With abominations provoked they him to anger.
To gods whom they knew not,
To new gods that came newly up,
Whom your fathers feared not.
And hast oforgotten God that formed thee.
Because of the provoking of qhis sons, and of his daughters.
20 And he said, rI will hide my face from them,
I will see what their end shall be:
For they are a svery froward generation,
Children in whom is no faith.
Or, which were not God. Comp. ver. 21.
So Judg. 2:14.
Comp. Isai. 1:2.
See ch. 31:17.
