In their [the Israelites] hearts they turned back to Egypt, saying to Aaron, ‘Make gods for us who will lead the way for us; as for this Moses who led us out from the land of Egypt, we do not know what has happened to him.’ At that time they made a calf, offered a sacrifice to the idol, and reveled in the works of their hands.
You have everlasting loving-kindness for us,
yet we place so many things above you,
thus making them idols in our lives.
Help us to turn away from them and put you first,
So we may worship you in Spirit and in Truth.
