Psalms 106:36-43

Context

106:36 They worshiped 1  their idols,

which became a snare to them. 2 

106:37 They sacrificed their sons and daughters to demons. 3 

106:38 They shed innocent blood –

the blood of their sons and daughters,

whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan.

The land was polluted by bloodshed. 4 

106:39 They were defiled by their deeds,

and unfaithful in their actions. 5

and despised the people who belong to him. 7 

106:41 He handed them over to 8  the nations,

and those who hated them ruled over them.

106:42 Their enemies oppressed them;

they were subject to their authority. 9

but they had a rebellious attitude, 11 

and degraded themselves 12  by their sin.
