what are they to me?” says the Lord.
“I have more than enough of burnt offerings,
of rams and the fat of fattened animals;s
I have no pleasuret
who has asked this of you,w
this trampling of my courts?
13 Stop bringing meaningless offerings!x
I cannot bear your worthless assemblies.
I hate with all my being.e
They have become a burden to me;f
I am wearyg of bearing them.
15 When you spread out your handsh in prayer,
I hidei my eyes from you;
even when you offer many prayers,
I am not listening.j
16 Washm and make yourselves clean.
Take your evil deeds out of my sight;n
stop doing wrong.o
Take up the cause of the fatherless;s
plead the case of the widow.t
Or justice. / Correct the oppressor
