Other godsDeut 32:15 But Israel was soon overfed;Yes, fat and bloated;Then, in plenty, they forsook their God.They shrugged away the Rock of their salvation. 16 Israel began to follow foreign gods,And Jehovah was very angry;He was jealous of his people. 17 They sacrificed to heathen gods,To new gods never before worshiped. 18 They spurned the Rock who had made them,Forgetting it was God who had given them birth.

  • 1 Kings 18:21 Then Elijah talked to them. "How long are you going to waver between two opinions?" he asked the people. " If the Lord is God, follow him! But if Baal is God, then follow him!" ...25 Then Elijah turned to the prophets of Baal. "You first," he said, "for there are many of you; choose one of the bulls and prepare it and call to your god; but don't put any fire under the wood." 1 Kings 18:26 So they prepared one of the young bulls and placed it on the altar; and they called to Baal all morning, shouting, "O Baal, hear us!" But there was no reply of any kind. Then they began to dance around the altar. ...28 So they shouted louder and, as was their custom, cut themselves with knives and swords until the blood gushed out. 29 They raved all afternoon until the time of the evening sacrifice, but there was no reply, no voice, no answer.

Isa 59:15 Truth is nowhere to be found, and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey.
The LORD looked and was displeased that there was no justice. 16 He saw that there was no one, he was appalled that there was no one to intervene; so his own arm worked salvation for him, and his own righteousness sustained him.
17 He put on righteousness as his breastplate, and the helmet of salvation on his head; he put on the garments of vengeance and wrapped himself in zeal as in a cloak. NIV

Isa 59:18 According to what they have done, so will he repay wrath to his enemies and retribution to his foes; he will repay the islands their due. 19 From the west, men will fear the name of the LORD, and from the rising of the sun, they will revere his glory. For he will come like a pent-up flood that the breath of the LORD drives along. NIV
Hos 6:4 "O Ephraim and Judah, what shall I do with you? For your love vanishes like morning clouds, and disappears like dew. 5 I sent my prophets to warn you of your doom; I have slain you with the words of my mouth, threatening you with death. Suddenly, without warning, my judgment will strike you as surely as day follows night. ...11 O Judah, for you also there is a plentiful harvest of punishment waiting-and I wanted so much to bless you! TLB
Scatter Israel after Yeshau's deathZech 13:7 "Awake, O sword, against My Shepherd,Against the Man who is My Companion,"Says the LORD of hosts."Strike the Shepherd,And the sheep will be scattered;Then I will turn My hand against the little ones. 8 And it shall come to pass in all the land,"Says the LORD,"That two-thirds in it shall be cut off and die,But one- third shall be left in it: 9 I will bring the one-third through the fire,Will refine them as silver is refined,And test them as gold is tested.They will call on My name,And I will answer them.I will say, 'This is My people';And each one will say, 'The LORD is my God.'" NKJV (See also Yeshua's Suffering#Killed)
RejectPsalms 78:59 When God heard them, he was very angry, and herejected Israel completely. 60 Then he abandoned his dwelling  at Shiloh, the Tabernacle where he had lived among the people. 61 He allowed the Ark of his might to be captured; he surrendered his glory into enemy hands. 62 He gave his people over to be butchered by the sword, because he was so angry with his own people--his special possession. 63 Their young men were killed by fire; their young women died before singing their wedding songs. 64 Their priests were slaughtered, and their widows could not mourn their deaths.   NLT
Psalms 79:1 O God, pagan  (heathen - TLB) nations have conquered your land, your special possession. They have defiled your holy Temple and made Jerusalem a heap of ruins. 2 They have left the bodies of your servants as food for the birds of heaven. The flesh of your godly ones has become food for the wild animals. 3 Blood has flowed like water all around Jerusalem; no one is left to bury the dead. 4 We are mocked by our neighbors, an object of scorn and derision to those around us. NLT
Psalms 79:5 O LORD, how long will you be angry with us? Forever? How long will your jealousy burn like fire? NLT

Mercy to ILPsalms 78:38 Yet he was merciful and forgave their sins and didn't destroy them all. Many a time he held back his anger and did not unleash his fury! 39 For he remembered that they were merely mortal, gone in a moment like a breath of wind, never to return. NLT
Psalms 80:14 Come back, we beg you, O God Almighty. Look down from heaven and see our plight.

May they perish at the sight of your frown. 17 Strengthen the man you love, the son of your choice. 18 Then we will never forsake you again. Revive us so we can call on your name once more. NLT
