Isaiah 66:2-4 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

All these things my hand has made,
    and so all these things are mine,[a]
                says the Lord.
But this is the man to whom I will look,
    he that is humble and contrite in spirit,
    and trembles at my word.

“He who slaughters an ox is like him who kills a man;
    he who sacrifices a lamb, like him who breaks a dog’s neck;
he who presents a cereal offering, like him who offers swine’s blood;
    he who makes a memorial offering of frankincense, like him who blesses an idol.
These have chosen their own ways,
    and their soul delights in their abominations;
I also will choose affliction for them,
    and bring their fears upon them;
because, when I called, no one answered,
    when I spoke they did not listen;
but they did what was evil in my eyes,
    and chose that in which I did not delight.”
