7  Hear, O my people, and I will speak: 
   ‘I will testify against you, O Israel;
      for I am God, your God.
8  ‘I will not reprove you for your sacrifices, 
   for your burnt offerings are always before me.
9  ‘I will take no bull out of your house, 
   nor he-goat out of your folds,
10  ‘For all the beasts of the forest are mine, 
   the cattle upon a thousand hills.
11  ‘I know every bird of the mountains 
   and the insect of the field is mine.
12  ‘If I were hungry, I would not tell you, 
   for the whole world is mine and all that fills it.
13  ‘Do you think I eat the flesh of bulls, 
   or drink the blood of goats?
14  ‘Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving 
   and fulfil your vows to God Most High.
15  ‘Call upon me in the day of trouble; 
   I will deliver you and you shall honour me.’
16  But to the wicked, says God: 
   ‘Why do you recite my statutes
      and take my covenant upon your lips,
17  ‘Since you refuse to be disciplined 
   and have cast my words behind you?
18  ‘When you saw a thief, you made friends with him 
   and you threw in your lot with adulterers.
19  ‘You have loosed your lips for evil 
   and harnessed your tongue to deceit.
20  ‘You sit and speak evil of your brother; 
   you slander your own mother’s son.
21  ‘These things have you done, and should I keep silence? 
   Did you think that I am even such a one as yourself?
22  ‘But no, I must reprove you, 
   and set before your eyes the things that you have done.
23  ‘You that forget God, consider this well, 
   lest I tear you apart and there is none to deliver you.
24  ‘Whoever offers me the sacrifice of thanksgiving honours me 
   and to those who keep my way
      will I show the salvation of God.’
