It's the fault of Israel and Judah which forsook their God and went chasing after the status of having kings and corrupted themselves with Baal worship, etc. -- all of which they were warned about over and over by the prophets. This betrayal and the subsequent rejection of Messiah, led to them being set aside as the priesthood nation, and the focus widening out to the Gentiles. One day, this will be fully reconciled -- and Israel will fulfill its intended role, but with all nations seeking God. Ezekiel 16 speaks of even Sodom being restored when Jerusalem is restored, highlighting that Jerusalem's evils were actually worse than Sodom's. The Bible is about the ultimate reconciliation of all peoples and nations -- not just one.
