Isaiah 1:6–11

qFrom the sole of the foot even to the head,

there is no soundness in it,

but bruises and sores

and raw wounds;

they are rnot pressed out or bound up

or softened with oil.

your cities are burned with fire;

in your very presence

foreigners devour your land;

it is desolate, as overthrown by foreigners.

And tthe daughter of Zion is left

like a ubooth in a vineyard,

like a lodge in a cucumber field,

like a besieged city.

Give ear to the teaching2 of our God,

you people of zGomorrah!

11  a“What to me is the multitude of your sacrifices?

or of lambs, or of goats.
