GOD’S WORD Translation
12 I have written many things for them in my teachings,
but they consider these things strange and foreign.
13 They offer sacrifices to me and eat the meat of sacrifices,
but I, the Lord, do not accept these sacrifices.
Now I will remember their wickedness
and punish them because of their sins.
They will go back to Egypt.
14 The people of Israel have built palaces,
and they have forgotten their maker.
The people of Judah have built many fortified cities.
I will send a fire on their cities and burn down their palaces.”
New International Version
12 I wrote for them the many things of my law,
but they regarded them as something foreign.(A)
13 Though they offer sacrifices as gifts to me,
and though they eat(B) the meat,
the Lord is not pleased with them.(C)
Now he will remember(D) their wickedness
and punish their sins:(E)
They will return to Egypt.(F)
14 Israel has forgotten(G) their Maker(H)
and built palaces;
Judah has fortified many towns.
But I will send fire on their cities
that will consume their fortresses.”(I)
King James Version
12 I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as a strange thing.
13 They sacrifice flesh for the sacrifices of mine offerings, and eat it; but the Lord accepteth them not; now will he remember their iniquity, and visit their sins: they shall return to Egypt.
14 For Israel hath forgotten his Maker, and buildeth temples; and Judah hath multiplied fenced cities: but I will send a fire upon his cities, and it shall devour the palaces thereof.Read full chapter
