The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
6 Doing something for you, bringing something to you - that's not what you're after. Being religious, acting pious - that's not what you're asking for. You've opened my ears so I can listen. 6 Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but my ears you have pierced; burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not require.
7 So I answered, "I'm coming. I read in your letter what you wrote about me, 7 Then I said, "Here I am, I have come-- it is written about me in the scroll.
8 And I'm coming to the party you're throwing for me." That's when God's Word entered my life, became part of my very being. 8 I desire to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart."
