Isaiah 66:1-6

The Humble and Contrite in Spirit

1 1Thus says the LORD: 2"Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool; what is the house that you would build for me, and what is the place of my rest?
2 3All these things my hand has made, and so all these things came to be, declares the LORD. 4But this is the one to whom I will look: he who is humble and contrite in spirit and trembles at my word.
3 5"He who slaughters an ox is like one who kills a man; he who sacrifices a lamb, like one who breaks a dog's neck; he who presents a grain offering, like one who offers 6pig's blood; he who makes a memorial offering of frankincense, like one who blesses an idol. 7These have chosen their own ways, and their soul delights in their abominations;
4 8I also will choose harsh treatment for them and bring 9their fears upon them, 10because when I called, no one answered, when I spoke, they did not listen; 11but they did what was evil in my eyes and chose that in which I did not delight."
5 Hear the word of the LORD, you who tremble at his word: "Your brothers who hate you and cast you out for my name's sake have said, 12'Let the LORD be glorified, that we may see your joy'; but it is they who shall be put to shame.
6 "The sound of an uproar from the city! A sound from the temple! The sound of the LORD, 13rendering recompense to his enemies!
