"The beasts of the field will glorify Me, The 1jackals and the ostriches, Because I have 2givenwaters in the wilderness And rivers in the desert, To givedrink to My chosenpeople.
"The peoplewhom3I formed for Myself 4Will declare My praise.
"Yet you have not called on Me, O Jacob ; But you have become5weary of Me, O Israel.
"You have 6not brought to Me the sheep of your burntofferings, Nor have you 7honored Me with your sacrifices. I have not 8burdened you with aofferings, Norwearied you with 9incense.
"You have bought Me not b10sweetcane with money, Nor have you cfilled Me with the fat of your sacrifices ; Rather you have burdened Me with your sins, You have 11wearied Me with your iniquities.
"I, even I, am the one who 12wipes out your transgressions13for My own sake, And I will 14not remember your sins.
"dPut Me in remembrance, 15let us argue our casetogether ; State your cause, 16that you may be provedright.
"Your 17firsteforefathersinned, And your f18spokesmen have gtransgressed against Me.
"So I will hpollute the iprinces of the sanctuary, And I will consignJacob to the 19ban and Israel to 20revilement.
