Wherefore have we iafflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge?
Behold, kin the day of your fast ye find pleasure,
4 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.
5 pIs it such a fast that I have chosen?
Is it to bow down his head as qa bulrush,
Wilt thou call this a fast,
And an acceptable day to the Lord?
Comp. Mal. 3:14.
See ch. 56:12.
See ch. 60:17.
Or, things wherewith ye grieve others.
Or, Ye fast not as this day.
Comp. Matt. 6:7.
Or, To afflict his soul for a day?
