Isaiah 1:2-4 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

“Hear, heaven! Listen, earth!
For Adonai is speaking.

“I raised and brought up children,
but they rebelled against me.
An ox knows its owner
and a donkey its master’s stall,
but Isra’el does not know,
my people do not reflect.

“Oh, sinful nation,
a people weighed down by iniquity,
descendants of evildoers,
immoral children!
They have abandoned Adonai,
spurned the Holy One of Isra’el,
turned their backs on him!

Isaiah 1:2-4 New International Version (NIV)

A Rebellious Nation

Hear me, you heavens! Listen, earth!
    For the Lord has spoken:
“I reared children and brought them up,
    but they have rebelled against me.
The ox knows its master,
    the donkey its owner’s manger,
but Israel does not know,
    my people do not understand.

Woe to the sinful nation,
    a people whose guilt is great,
a brood of evildoers,
    children given to corruption!
They have forsaken the Lord;
    they have spurned the Holy One of Israel
    and turned their backs on him.
