Sacrifice thank offerings5 to God, fulfill your vows6 to the Most High,715
and call8 upon me in the day of trouble;9 I will deliver10 you, and you will honor11 me."

These things you have done and I kept silent;20 you thought I was altogethera like you. But I will rebuke21 you and accuse22 you to your face.
