||Seek good and not evil, so that you may live. And the Lord God of hosts will be with you, just as you have asked.
||Hate evil and love good, and establish judgment at the gate. Perhaps then the Lord God of hosts may have mercy on the remnant of Joseph.
||I hate and have rejected your feasts; and I will not accept the odor from your gatherings.
||For if you offer me holocausts and your gifts, I will not receive them; and I will not look upon the vows of your fatness.
||Take away from me the tumult of your songs, and I will not listen to the canticles of your lyre.
||And judgment will be revealed like water, and justice like a mighty torrent.
