18 “Forget the former things;(A)
    do not dwell on the past.
19 See, I am doing a new thing!(B)
    Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness(C)
    and streams in the wasteland.(D)
20 The wild animals(E) honor me,
    the jackals(F) and the owls,
because I provide water(G) in the wilderness
    and streams in the wasteland,
to give drink to my people, my chosen,
21     the people I formed(H) for myself(I)
    that they may proclaim my praise.(J)

22 “Yet you have not called on me, Jacob,
    you have not wearied(K) yourselves for[a] me, Israel.(L)
23 You have not brought me sheep for burnt offerings,(M)
    nor honored(N) me with your sacrifices.(O)
I have not burdened(P) you with grain offerings
    nor wearied you with demands(Q) for incense.(R)
24 You have not bought any fragrant calamus(S) for me,
    or lavished on me the fat(T) of your sacrifices.
But you have burdened me with your sins
    and wearied(U) me with your offenses.(V)

25 “I, even I, am he who blots out
    your transgressions,(W) for my own sake,(X)
    and remembers your sins(Y) no more.(Z)
