"I hate,1 I despise your religious feasts;2 I cannot stand your assemblies.322
Even though you bring me burnt offerings4 and grain offerings, I will not accept them.56 Though you bring choice fellowship offerings,a I will have no regard for them.7823
Away with the noise of your songs! I will not listen to the music of your harps.924
But let justice10 roll on like a river, righteousness11 like a never-failing stream!1225
"Did you bring me sacrifices13 and offerings forty years14 in the desert, O house of Israel?
