Jeremiah 5:4-5; Isaiah 1:3

Then I said, These are only the poor;

they have no sense;

ffor they do not know the way of the Lord,

the justice of their God.

I will go to the great

and will speak to them,

for they know the way of the Lord,

the justice of their God.

gBut they all alike had broken the yoke;

they had burst the bonds.


The ox jknows its owner,

and the donkey its master's crib,

but Israel does jnot know,

my people do not understand.
