17 The sacrifices of God are a (A)broken spirit;
A broken and a contrite heart, God, You will not despise.

18 (B)By Your favor do good to Zion;
[a](C)Build the walls of Jerusalem.
19 Then You will delight in [b](D)righteous sacrifices,
In (E)burnt offering and whole burnt offering;
Then [c]bulls will be offered on Your altar.
