34  They did not destroy the peoples 
   as the Lord had commanded them.
35  They mingled with the nations 
   and learned to follow their ways,
36  So that they worshipped their idols, 
   which became to them a snare.
37  Their own sons and daughters 
   they sacrificed to evil spirits.
38  They shed innocent blood, 
   the blood of their sons and daughters,
39  Which they offered to the idols of Canaan, 
   and the land was defiled with blood.
40  Thus were they polluted by their actions, 
   and in their wanton deeds went whoring after other gods.
41  Therefore was the wrath of the Lord
      kindled against his people, 
   and he abhorred his inheritance.
42  He gave them over to the hand of the nations, 
   and those who hated them ruled over them.
43  So their enemies oppressed them 
   and put them in subjection under their hand.
44  Many a time did he deliver them,
      but they rebelled through their own devices 
   and were brought down through their wickedness.
45  Nevertheless, he saw their adversity, 
   when he heard their lamentation.
46  He remembered his covenant with them 
   and relented according to the greatness of his faithful love.
47  He made them also to be pitied 
   by all who had taken them captive.
48  Save us, O Lord our God,
      and gather us from among the nations, 
   that we may give thanks to your holy name
      and glory in your praise.
49  Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
      from everlasting and to everlasting; 
   and let all the people say, Amen.
