Context Readings

Israel's Corrupt Religion

12 "When you come to present yourselves in my presence, who has required you to trample on my courts? 13 Stop bringing useless offerings! Incense is detestable to me, as are your New Moons, Sabbaths, and calling of convocations. I cannot stand iniquity within a solemn assembly. 14 As for your New Moons and your appointed festivals, I abhor them. They've become a burden to me; I've grown weary of carrying that burden.
