“Listen, my people, and I will speak;

I will testify against you, Israel:

I am God, your God.

I bring no charges against you concerning your sacrifices

or concerning your burnt offerings, which are ever before me.

I have no need of a bull from your stall

or of goats from your pens,

10 for every animal of the forest is mine,

and the cattle on a thousand hills.

11 I know every bird in the mountains,

and the insects in the fields are mine.

for the world is mine, and all that is in it.

13 Do I eat the flesh of bulls

or drink the blood of goats?

Nor he goats out of thy folds.

10 For every beast of the forest is mine,

And the cattle upon a thousand hills.

11 I know all the fowls of the mountains:

And the wild beasts of the field are mine.

12 If I were hungry, I would not tell thee:

For the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.

13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls,

Or drink the blood of goats?

And pay thy vows unto the most High:

15 And call upon me in the day of trouble:

I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

or the goats from your pens.

10 For all the animals of the forest are mine,

and I own the cattle on a thousand hills.

11 I know every bird on the mountains,

and all the animals of the field are mine.

12 If I were hungry, I would not tell you,

for all the world is mine and everything in it.

13 Do I eat the meat of bulls?

Do I drink the blood of goats?

14 Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God,

and keep the vows you made to the Most High.

15 Then call on me when you are in trouble,

and I will rescue you,

and you will give me glory.”

I don’t need goats from your pens.

The world belongs to me. And so does everything in it.

13 Do I eat the meat of bulls?

Do I drink the blood of goats?

I will save you. And you will honor me.”
