The people which I formed for Myself, that they might tell of My praise.
Yet thou hast not called upon Me, O Jacob, neither hast thou wearied thyself about Me, O Israel.
Thou hast not brought Me the small cattle of thy burnt-offerings; neither hast thou honoured Me with thy sacrifices. I have not burdened thee with a meal-offering, nor wearied thee with frankincense.
Thou hast bought Me no sweet cane with money, neither hast thou satisfied Me with the fat of thy sacrifices; but thou hast burdened Me with thy sins, thou hast wearied Me with thine iniquities.
I, even I, am He that blotteth out thy transgressions for Mine own sake; and thy sins I will not remember.
Put Me in remembrance, let us plead together; declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.
Thy first father sinned, and thine intercessors have transgressed against Me.
Therefore I have profaned the princes of the sanctuary, and I have given Jacob to condemnation, and Israel to reviling.
