For all those things My hand has made,
And all those things exist,”
Says the Lord.
(A)“But on this one will I look:
(B)On him who is poor and of a contrite spirit,
And who trembles at My word.

“He(C) who kills a bull is as if he slays a man;
He who sacrifices a lamb, as if he (D)breaks a dog’s neck;
He who offers a grain offering, as if he offers swine’s blood;
He who burns incense, as if he blesses an idol.
Just as they have chosen their own ways,
And their soul delights in their abominations,
So will I choose their delusions,
And bring their fears on them;
(E)Because, when I called, no one answered,
When I spoke they did not hear;
But they did evil before My eyes,
And chose that in which I do not delight.”
