Isaiah 58:2-4 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

They still come every day to worship me,
    acting as if they want to learn my ways.
They pretend to be a nation that lives right
    and obeys the commands of their God.
They ask me to judge them fairly.
    They want their God to be near them.

They say, “We fast to show honor to you. Why don’t you see us? We starve our bodies to show honor to you. Why don’t you notice us?”

But God says, “You do things to please yourselves on those special days of fasting. And you punish your servants, not your own bodies. You are hungry, but not for food. You are hungry for arguing and fighting, not for bread. You are hungry to hit people with your evil hands. This is not the way to fast if you want your prayers to be heard in heaven!
