Isaiah 1:11–15

Or of lambs or goats.

12 “When you come oto appear before Me,

Incense is an abomination to Me.

The New Moons, the Sabbaths, and qthe calling of assemblies—

I cannot endure iniquity and the sacred meeting.

14 Your rNew Moons and your sappointed feasts

I will not hear.

Your hands are full of 8blood.
