Amos 5:21 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

21 [a]I hate, I despise your feasts,
    I take no pleasure in your solemnities.

Footnotes:

  1. 5:21–27 The prophet does not condemn cultic activity as such but rather the people’s attempt to offer worship with hands unclean from oppression of their fellow Israelites (cf. Ps 15:2–5; 24:3–4). But worship from those who disregard justice and righteousness (v. 24) is never acceptable to the God of Israel. Through the Sinai covenant the love of God and the love of neighbor are inextricably bound together.
