Isaiah 1:3 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

An ox knows its owner,
    and an ass,[a] its master’s manger;
But Israel does not know,
    my people has not understood.

Footnotes:

  1. 1:3 Ox…ass: Isaiah uses animals proverbial for their stupidity and stubbornness to underline Israel’s failure to respond to God. Israel: a term Isaiah (and other prophets) frequently applies to Judah, especially after the fall of the Northern Kingdom (which Isaiah normally calls Ephraim, as in 7:2, 9, 17; 9:8), but sometimes applies to the entire chosen people, as in 8:14.
