19"Behold, I will dosomething1new, Now it will springforth ; Will you not be aware of it? I will even2make a roadway in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert.
"The beasts of the field will glorify Me, The 3jackals and the ostriches, Because I have 4givenwaters in the wilderness And rivers in the desert, To givedrink to My chosenpeople.
"The peoplewhom5I formed for Myself 6Will declare My praise.
"Yet you have not called on Me, O Jacob ; But you have become7weary of Me, O Israel.
"You have 8not brought to Me the sheep of your burntofferings, Nor have you 9honored Me with your sacrifices. I have not 10burdened you with aofferings, Norwearied you with 11incense.
"You have bought Me not b12sweetcane with money, Nor have you cfilled Me with the fat of your sacrifices ; Rather you have burdened Me with your sins, You have 13wearied Me with your iniquities.
"I, even I, am the one who 14wipes out your transgressions15for My own sake, And I will 16not remember your sins.
"dPut Me in remembrance, 17let us argue our casetogether ; State your cause, 18that you may be provedright.
"Your 19firsteforefathersinned, And your f20spokesmen have gtransgressed against Me.
"So I will hpollute the iprinces of the sanctuary, And I will consignJacob to the 21ban and Israel to 22revilement.
