A (41) And they made a calf in those days, and offered sacrifice unto the idol, and rejoiced in the works of their own hands.
B (42a) Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven;
C (42b-43) as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of forty years in the wilderness? Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.
D (44a) Our fathers had the tabernacle of witness in the wilderness,
E (44b) as he had appointed, speaking unto Moses, that he should make it according to the fashion that he had seen.
F (45a) Which also our fathers that came after brought in
G (45b) with Joshua into the possession of the Gentiles,
F’ (45c) whom God drave out before the face of our fathers,
E’ (45d-46) unto the days of David; Who found favour before God, and desired to find a tabernacle for the God of Jacob.
D’ (47) But Solomon built him an house.
C’ (48) Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,
B’ (49) Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest?
A’ (50) Hath not my hand made all these things?
