27 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination,
    the more so when they offer it with bad intent.

Ecclesiastes 4:17 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Vanity of Many Words. 17 Guard your step when you go to the house of God.[a] Draw near for obedience, rather than for the fools’ offering of sacrifice; for they know not how to keep from doing evil.

Footnotes:

  1. 4:17 The house of God: the Temple in Jerusalem. Obedience…sacrifice: the Temple was the place not only for sacrifice but also for instruction in the Law. Sacrifice without obedience was unacceptable; cf. 1 Sm 15:22; Hos 6:6.

Isaiah 1:11-15 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

11 What do I care for the multitude of your sacrifices?
    says the Lord.
I have had enough of whole-burnt rams
    and fat of fatlings;
In the blood of calves, lambs, and goats
    I find no pleasure.
12 When you come to appear before me,
    who asks these things of you?
13 Trample my courts no more!
    To bring offerings is useless;
    incense is an abomination to me.
New moon and sabbath, calling assemblies—
    festive convocations with wickedness—
    these I cannot bear.
14 Your new moons and festivals I detest;
    they weigh me down, I tire of the load.
15 When you spread out your hands,
    I will close my eyes to you;
Though you pray the more,
    I will not listen.
Your hands are full of blood![a]

Footnotes:

  1. 1:15–16 Hands…blood: oppression of the poor is likened to violence that bloodies the hands, which explains why the hands spread out in prayer (v. 15) are not regarded by the Lord. This climax of the accusations is followed by positive admonitions for reversing the evil situation.
