Because
Deuteronomy 29:25-28
25
Then people will answer, 'It is because they abandoned the covenant of the LORD, the God of their fathers, which He had made with them when He brought them out of the land of Egypt.
26
They began to worship other gods, bowing down to gods they had not known-- gods that the LORD had not permitted them [to worship].
27
Therefore the LORD's anger burned against this land, and He brought every curse written in this book on it.
28
The LORD uprooted them from their land in [His] anger, fury, and great wrath, and threw them into another land where they are today.'
2 Chronicles 7:22
Then they will say: Because they abandoned the LORD God of their ancestors who brought them out of the land of Egypt. They clung to other gods and worshiped and served them. Because of this, He brought all this ruin on them.
Jeremiah 2:10-13
10
Cross over to Cyprusand take a look. Send [someone] to Kedar and consider carefully; see if there has ever been anything like this:
11
Has a nation [ever] exchanged its gods? (but they were not gods!) Yet My people have exchanged their Glory for useless idols.
12
Be horrified at this, heavens; be shocked and utterly appalled. [This is] the LORD's declaration.
13
For My people have committed a double evil: They have abandoned Me, the fountain of living water, and dug cisterns for themselves, cracked cisterns that cannot hold water.
Jeremiah 2:19-13
Jeremiah 5:19
When people ask: For what offense has the LORD our God done all these things to us? You will respond to them: Just as you abandoned Me and served foreign gods in your land, so will you serve strangers in a land that is not yours.
Jeremiah 16:10-13
10
"When you tell these people all these things, they will say to you: Why has the LORD declared all this great disaster against us? What is our guilt? What is our sin that we have committed against the LORD our God?
11
Then you will answer them: Because your fathers abandoned Me"-- the LORD's declaration-- "and followed other gods, served them, and worshiped them. Indeed, they abandoned Me and did not keep My law.
12
You did more evil than your fathers. Look, each one of you was following the stubbornness of his evil heart, not obeying Me.
13
So I will hurl you from this land into a land that you and your fathers are not familiar with. There you will worship other gods both day and night, for I will not grant you grace.
Jeremiah 50:7
All who found them devoured them. Their adversaries said: We're not guilty; instead, they have sinned against the LORD, their righteous grazing land, the hope of their ancestors, the LORD.
Lamentations 2:16
All your enemies open their mouths against you. They hiss and gnash [their] teeth, saying, "We have swallowed [her] up. This is the day we have waited for! We have lived to see [it]."
Lamentations 2:17
The LORD has done what He planned; He has accomplished His decree, which He ordained in days of old. He has demolished without compassion, letting the enemy gloat over you and exalting the horn of your adversaries.
Lamentations 4:13-15
13
[Yet it happened] because of the sins of her prophets and the guilt of her priests, who shed the blood of the righteous within her.
14
Blind, they stumbled in the streets, defiled by this blood, so that no one dared to touch their garments.
15
"Stay away! Unclean!" people shouted at them. "Away, away! Don't touch [us]!" So they wandered aimlessly. It was said among the nations, "They can stay here no longer."
Ezekiel 36:17-20
17
"Son of man, while the house of Israel lived in their land, they defiled it with their conduct and actions. Their behavior before Me was like menstrual impurity.
18
So I poured out My wrath on them because of the blood they had shed on the land, and because they had defiled it with their idols.
19
I dispersed them among the nations, and they were scattered among the countries. I judged them according to their conduct and actions.
20
When they came to the nations where they went, they profaned My holy name, because it was said about them: These are the people of the LORD, yet they had to leave His land [in exile].
Zephaniah 1:4
I will stretch out My hand against Judah and against all the residents of Jerusalem. I will cut off from this place every vestige of Baal, the names of the pagan priests along with the priests;
Zephaniah 1:5
those who bow in worship on the rooftops to the heavenly host; those who bow and pledge loyalty to the LORD but also pledge loyalty to Milcom;
therefore
Jeremiah 12:7
I have abandoned My house; I have deserted My inheritance. I have given the love of My life into the hand of her enemies.
Jeremiah 12:8
My inheritance has acted toward Me like a lion in the forest. She has roared against Me. Therefore, I hate her.
