Isaiah 66:2-4 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

I am the one who made all things.
    They are all here because I made them,” says the Lord.
“These are the people I care for:
    the poor, humble people who obey my commands.
Some people kill bulls as a sacrifice,
    but they also beat people.
They kill sheep as a sacrifice,
    but they also break the necks of dogs.
They offer up grain offerings,
    but they also offer the blood of pigs.[a]
They burn incense,
    but they also love their worthless idols.
They choose their own ways,
    and they love their terrible idols.
So I decided to use their own tricks.
    I will punish them using what they are most afraid of.
I will do this because I called to them,
    but they did not answer.
I spoke to them,
    but they did not listen.
They did what I said is evil.
    They chose to do what I did not like.”
