Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Sacrifice and meal-offering, thou didst not delight in, Ears, didst thou pierce for me, - Ascending-sacrifice and sin-bearer, thou didst not ask:
Not, for thy sacrifices, will I reprove thee, Nor for thine ascending-offerings, before me continually:
Of what use to me, is your multitude of sacrifices: Saith Yahweh: I am sated with ascending-offerings of rams and the fat of fed beasts, - In the blood of bulls and young rams and he-goats, have I no pleasure.
What then is it to me that - Frankincense from Shebah come in, or Sweet cane from a land afar off? Your own ascending-offerings, are not acceptable, Nor are, your sacrifices, pleasing to me.
I hate, I despise your festivals, - and can scent no fragrance in your solemn feasts.
