Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
20 Honour me doth the beast of the field, Dragons and daughters of an ostrich, For I have given in a wilderness waters, Floods in a desolate place, To give drink to My people -- My chosen. 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 This people I have formed for Myself, My praise they recount. 21 the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise.
22 And Me thou hast not called, O Jacob, For thou hast been wearied of me, O Israel, 22 "Yet you have not called upon me, O Jacob, you have not wearied yourselves for me, O Israel.
23 Thou hast not brought in to Me, The lamb of thy burnt-offerings, And [with] thy sacrifices thou hast not honoured Me, I have not caused thee to serve with a present, Nor wearied thee with frankincense. 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 Thou hast not bought for Me with money sweet cane, And [with] the fat of thy sacrifices hast not filled Me, Only -- thou hast caused Me to serve with thy sins, Thou hast wearied Me with thine iniquities. 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 -- I [am] He who is blotting out Thy transgressions for Mine own sake, And thy sins I do not remember. 25 "I, even I, am he who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more.
26 Cause me to remember -- we are judged together, Declare thou that thou mayest be justified. 26 Review the past for me, let us argue the matter together; state the case for your innocence.
27 Thy first father sinned, And thine interpreters transgressed against me, 27 Your first father sinned; your spokesmen rebelled against me.
28 And I pollute princes of the sanctuary, And I give Jacob to destruction, and Israel to revilings! 28 So I will disgrace the dignitaries of your temple, and I will consign Jacob to destruction and Israel to scorn.
