Isaiah 1:3; Hosea 4:6

The ox jknows its owner,

and the donkey its master's crib,

but Israel does jnot know,

my people do not understand.


My people are destroyed vfor lack of knowledge;

wbecause you have rejected knowledge,

I reject you xfrom being a priest to me.

And since you have forgotten the law of your God,

yI also will forget your children.
