This people have I formed for myself: they shall shew forth my praise.
-- But thou hast not called upon me, Jacob; for thou hast been weary of me, a O Israel:
thou hast not brought me the small cattle of thy burnt-offerings, neither hast thou glorified me with thy sacrifices. I have not caused thee to toil with an oblation, b nor wearied thee with incense.
Thou hast bought me no sweet cane with money, neither hast thou filled me with the fat of thy sacrifices; but thou hast made me to toil with thy sins, thou hast wearied me with thine iniquities.
-- I, I [am] He c that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and I will not remember thy sins.
Put me in remembrance, let us plead together; rehearse thine own [cause], that thou mayest be justified.
Thy first father hath sinned, and thy mediators d have rebelled e against me.
And I have profaned the princes of the sanctuary, f and have given Jacob to the ban, and Israel to reproaches.
