“Listen, my people and I will speak. I will testify against you, Israel. I am God, your God.
I do not clear you for your sacrifices or your burnt offerings which are continually before Me.
I will accept no bullock from your house, or male goats out of your folds, for every animal of the forest is Mine and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all the fowls of the mountains, and the creatures of the field are Mine.
If I were hungry, I would not tell you, for the world and everything in it is Mine.
Do I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?
Offer thanksgiving unto God and pay your vows to the Most High, and call upon Me in the day of trouble. I will rescue you and you shall glorify Me.”
