“The most high is not pleased with the offerings of the wicked, neither is he pacified for sinne by the multitude of sacrifices.”
King James Version (KJV)
16. For the eyes of the Lord are vpon them that loue him, he is their mightie protection, and strong stay, a defence from heat, and a couer from the Sunne at noone, a preseruation from stumbling, and a helpe from falling. 17. He raiseth vp the soule, and lighteneth the eyes: hee giueth health, life, and blessing. 18. Hee that sacrificeth of a thing wrongfully gotten, his offering is ridiculous, and the giftes of vniust men are not accepted. 19. The most high is not pleased with the offerings of the wicked, neither is he pacified for sinne by the multitude of sacrifices. 20. Who so bringeth an offering of the goods of the poore, doeth as one that killeth the sonne before his fathers eyes. 21. The bread of the needie, is their life: he that defraudeth him thereof, is a man of blood. 22. Hee that taketh away his neighbours liuing, slayeth him: and hee that defraudeth the labourer of his hire, is a bloodshedder.
