Proverbs 21:27; Ecclesiastes 5:1; Isaiah 1:11; Isaiah 1:15

27  iThe sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination;

how much more jwhen he brings it with evil intent.


Fear God

1nGuard your steps when you go to othe house of God. To draw near to listen is better than to poffer the sacrifice of fools, for they do not know that they are doing evil.


11  aWhat to me is the multitude of your sacrifices?

says the Lord;

I have had enough of burnt offerings of rams

and the fat of well-fed beasts;

I do not delight in the blood of bulls,

or of lambs, or of goats.


15  When you gspread out your hands,

I will hide my eyes from you;

heven though you make many prayers,

I will not listen;

iyour hands are full of blood.
