But whoever sacrifices a bull(A)
    is like one who kills a person,
and whoever offers a lamb
    is like one who breaks a dog’s neck;
whoever makes a grain offering
    is like one who presents pig’s(B) blood,
and whoever burns memorial incense(C)
    is like one who worships an idol.
They have chosen their own ways,(D)
    and they delight in their abominations;(E)

Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.
