Where is the place where I will rest? 2 My hand made them; that is how they came to be," says the Lord. I show special favor to the humble and contrite, who respect what I have to say. 3 The one who slaughters a bull also strikes down a man; the one who sacrifices a lamb also breaks a dog's neck; the one who presents an offering includes pig's blood with it; the one who offers incense also praises an idol. They have decided to behave this way; they enjoy these disgusting practices.
