3-4“Your acts of worshipare acts of sin:Your sacrificial slaughter of the oxis no different from murdering the neighbor;Your offerings for worship,no different from dumping pig’s blood on the altar;Your presentation of memorial gifts,no different from honoring a no-god idol.You choose self-serving worship,you delight in self-centered worship—disgusting!Well, I choose to expose your nonsenseand let you realize your worst fears,Because when I invited you, you ignored me;when I spoke to you, you brushed me off.You did the very things I exposed as evil,you chose what I hate.”

Read Isaiah 66
