Isaiah 58:2-4 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Yes, daily they seem to seek me,
    pretending that they delight to know my ways,
    as though they were a nation that does what is right
    and had not rejected the law of their God.
    They ask me to show them the right way,
    acting as though they are eager to be close to me.
They say, ‘Why is it that when we fasted,
    you did not see it?
    We starved ourselves, and you didn’t seem to notice.’
“Because on the day you fasted
    you were seeking only your own desires,
    and you continue to exploit your workers.[a]
During your fasts, you quarrel and fight with others
    and strike them with an angry fist.
    When you fast like that, your voice will not be heard on high.

Footnotes:

  1. Isaiah 58:3 See Lev. 16:29. It was clear that their fasting was an attempt to appear spiritual and manipulate God.
