Bible: Isaiah 1:2-3

Obedience, not Sacrifice

1:2 Listen, O heavens,

pay attention, O earth! 1 

For the Lord speaks:

“I raised children, 2  I brought them up, 3 

but 4  they have rebelled 5  against me!

1:3 An ox recognizes its owner,

a donkey recognizes where its owner puts its food; 6 

but Israel does not recognize me, 7 

my people do not understand.”
