Hear, heavens,
    and listen, earth; for Yahweh[a] has spoken:
“I have nourished and brought up children
    and they have rebelled against me.
The ox knows his owner,
    and the donkey his master’s crib;
    but Israel doesn’t know.
    My people don’t consider.”
Ah sinful nation,
    a people loaded with iniquity,
    offspring[b] of evildoers,
    children who deal corruptly!
They have forsaken Yahweh.
    They have despised the Holy One of Israel.
    They are estranged and backward.
