8 Not for your sacrifices do I rebuke you, your burnt offerings are always before me.9 I will not take a bullock from your house, or he-goats from your folds.(A)
16 But to the wicked God says: “Why do you recite my commandments and profess my covenant with your mouth?17 You hate discipline; you cast my words behind you!
21 When you do these things should I be silent? Do you think that I am like you? I accuse you, I lay out the matter before your eyes.
23 Those who offer praise as a sacrifice honor me; I will let him whose way is steadfast look upon the salvation of God.”(A)
