Isaiah 1:2-4 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
The Wickedness of Judah
2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth;
for the Lord has spoken:
“Sons have I reared and brought up,
but they have rebelled against me.
3 The ox knows its owner,
and the ass its master’s crib;
but Israel does not know,
my people does not understand.”
4 Ah, sinful nation,
a people laden with iniquity,
offspring of evildoers,
sons who deal corruptly!
They have forsaken the Lord,
they have despised the Holy One of Israel,
they are utterly estranged.
