My hand made all things.
    All things are here because I made them,”
says the Lord.

“These are the people I am pleased with.
    They are those who are not proud or stubborn.
    They fear me and obey me.
But those people who kill bulls as a sacrifice to me
    are like those who kill men.
Those who kill sheep as a sacrifice to me
    are like those who break the necks of dogs.
Those who give me grain offerings
    are like those who offer me the blood of pigs.[a]
Those who burn incense
    are like those who worship idols.
These people choose their own ways—not mine.
    They love the terrible things they do.
So I will punish them.
    I will punish them using what they fear most.
I called to them, but they did not listen.
    I spoke to them, but they did not hear me.
They did things I said were evil.
    They chose to do things I did not like.”
