Because my people hath forgotten me, they have burned incense to vanity, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths, to walk in paths, in a way not cast up; (Jer. 18:Ver. 15.)

Because my people hath forgotten me. Not forsaken me only. Of all things God cannot abide to be forgotten; this is that very horrible thing, {#Jer 18:13} this is filthiness in virgin Israel, which is most abominable.
