Jeremiah 16:10-12 International Children’s Bible (ICB)
10 “You will tell the people of Judah these things. And they will ask you, ‘Why has the Lord said these terrible things to us? What have we done wrong? What sin have we done against the Lord our God?’
11 “Then say to them: ‘This is because your ancestors quit following me,’ says the Lord. ‘And they began to follow other gods. They served and worshiped other gods. Your ancestors left me. And they quit obeying my teaching. 12 But you have done even more evil than your ancestors. You are very stubborn. You do only what you want to do. You have not obeyed me.
