Isaiah 1:2-4 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

God’s Case Against Israel

Heaven and earth, listen! This is what the Lord says:

“I raised my children and helped them grow up,
    but they have turned against me.
A bull knows its master,
    and a donkey knows where its owner feeds it.
But Israel does not know me.
    My people do not understand.”

Oh, what a sinful nation! Their guilt is like a heavy weight that they must carry. They are evil, destructive children.[a] They left the Lord and insulted the Holy One of Israel. They turned away and treated him like a stranger.


  1. Isaiah 1:4 They … children Or “They are destructive children of evil parents.”
