Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Sacrifice and offering you did not desire; my ears have you opened: burnt offering and sin offering have you not required.
I will not reprove you for your sacrifices or your burnt offerings, to have been continually before me.
To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? says the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of male goats.
To what purpose comes there to me incense from Sheba, and the sweet cane from a far country? your burnt offerings are not acceptable, nor your sacrifices sweet unto me.
I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not take delight in your solemn assemblies.
