Hear me, you heavens! Listen, earth!8 For the LORD has spoken:9 "I reared children10 and brought them up, but they have rebelled11 against me.
The ox knows12 its master, the donkey its owner's manger,13 but Israel does not know,14 my people do not understand.15"
Ah, sinful nation, a people whose guilt is great,16 a brood of evildoers,17 children given to corruption!18 They have forsaken19 the LORD; they have spurned the Holy One20 of Israel and turned their backs21 on him.
Why should you be beaten22 anymore? Why do you persist23 in rebellion?24 Your whole head is injured, your whole heart25 afflicted.266
From the sole of your foot to the top of your head27 there is no soundness28-- only wounds and welts29 and open sores, not cleansed or bandaged30 or soothed with olive oil.31
