Isaiah 66:2-4 Names of God Bible (NOG)

I have made all these things.
    “That is why all these things have come into being,”
        declares Yahweh.
    I will pay attention to those
    who are humble and sorry for their sins
        and who tremble at my word.

Whoever kills a bull is like someone who kills a person.
    Whoever sacrifices a lamb is like someone who breaks a dog’s neck.
    Whoever offers a grain sacrifice
    is like someone who offers pig’s blood.
    Whoever burns incense is like someone who worships an idol.
    People have certainly chosen their own ways,
        and their souls delight in detestable things.

So I will choose harsh treatment for them
    and bring on them what they fear.
    I called, but no one answered.
    I spoke, but they didn’t listen.
    They did what I consider evil.
    They chose what I don’t like.

Isaiah 66:2-4 New International Version (NIV)

Has not my hand made all these things,
    and so they came into being?”
declares the Lord.

“These are the ones I look on with favor:
    those who are humble and contrite in spirit,
    and who tremble at my word.
But whoever sacrifices a bull
    is like one who kills a person,
and whoever offers a lamb
    is like one who breaks a dog’s neck;
whoever makes a grain offering
    is like one who presents pig’s blood,
and whoever burns memorial incense
    is like one who worships an idol.
They have chosen their own ways,
    and they delight in their abominations;
so I also will choose harsh treatment for them
    and will bring on them what they dread.
For when I called, no one answered,
    when I spoke, no one listened.
They did evil in my sight
    and chose what displeases me.”
