GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
20 Wild animals, jackals, and ostriches will honor me. I will provide water in the desert. I will make rivers on the dry land for my chosen people to drink. 20 The wild animals honor me, the jackals and the owls, because I provide water in the desert and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen,
21 I have formed these people for myself. They will praise me. 21 the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise.
22 Jacob, you have not prayed to me. Israel, you have grown tired of me. 22 "Yet you have not called upon me, O Jacob, you have not wearied yourselves for me, O Israel.
23 You did not bring me sheep for your burnt offerings or honor me with your sacrifices. I did not burden you by requiring grain offerings or trouble you by requiring incense offerings. 23 You have not brought me sheep for burnt offerings, nor honored me with your sacrifices. I have not burdened you with grain offerings nor wearied you with demands for incense.
24 You did not buy me any sugar cane with [your] money or satisfy me with the best part of your sacrifices. Rather, you burdened me with your sins and troubled me with your wrongdoings. 24 You have not bought any fragrant calamus for me, or lavished on me the fat of your sacrifices. But you have burdened me with your sins and wearied me with your offenses.
25 I alone am the one who is going to wipe away your rebellious actions for my own sake. I will not remember your sins [anymore]. 25 "I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more.
26 Remind me [of what happened]. Let us argue our case together. State your case so that you can prove you are right. 26 Review the past for me, let us argue the matter together; state the case for your innocence.
27 Your first ancestor sinned, and your priests rebelled against me. 27 Your first father sinned; your spokesmen rebelled against me.
28 That is why I will corrupt the leaders of the holy place. I will claim Jacob for destruction. I will set up Israel for ridicule. 28 So I will disgrace the dignitaries of your temple, and I will consign Jacob to destruction and Israel to scorn.
