gWherefore have we fasted, hsay they, and thou seest not?

Wherefore have we iafflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge?

Behold, kin the day of your fast ye find pleasure,

And lexact all your ||mlabours.

Behold, nye fast for strife and debate,

And to smite with the fist of wickedness:

||Ye shall not fast as ye do this day,

oTo make your voice to be heard on high.

pIs it such a fast that I have chosen?

||A day for a man to iafflict his soul?

Is it to bow down his head as qa bulrush,

And rto spread ssackcloth and ashes under him?

Wilt thou call this a fast,

And an acceptable day to the Lord?
