3 “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.

4 I also will choose affliction for them,
and bring their fears upon them;

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.”
- Isaiah 66:2 Gk Syr: Heb came to be
