I do not rebuke1 you for your sacrifices or your burnt offerings,2 which are ever before me.
I have no need of a bull3 from your stall or of goats4 from your pens,510
for every animal of the forest6 is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills.711
I know every bird8 in the mountains, and the creatures of the field9 are mine.
If I were hungry I would not tell you, for the world10 is mine, and all that is in it.1113
Do I eat the flesh of bulls or drink the blood of goats?
Sacrifice thank offerings12 to God, fulfill your vows13 to the Most High,14
