Isaiah 1:2 JPS 1:2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth, For the LORD hath spoken: Children I have reared, and brought up, And they have rebelled against Me. TJBU 1:2 Hear, heavens, which trembled when I gave my law to my people, and give ear, earth, which was agitated on account of my words, for the Lord has spoken. My people, the house of Israel, whom I called sons, I loved them, I made them glorious; but they have rebelled against my Word. Isaiah 1:3 JPS 1:3 The ox knoweth his owner, And the ass his master's crib; But Israel doth not know, My people doth not consider.

Isaiah 1:4 JPS 1:4 Ah sinful nation, A people laden with iniquity, A seed of evil-doers, Children that deal corruptly; They have forsaken the LORD, They have contemned the Holy One of Israel, They are turned away backward. TJBU 1:4 Woe to those who are called a holy people, because they have sinned; a chosen congregation, but they have multiplied sins; they are sur named a beloved seed, but they have done evil; they are called beloved sons, but they have corrupted their paths; they have forsaken the worship of the Lord; they abhorred the fear ot the Holy One of Israel, and because their works are evil they are turned away, and they are turned back. Isaiah 1:5 JPS 1:5 On what part will ye yet be stricken, Seeing ye stray away more and more? The whole head is sick, And the whole heart faint; TJBU 1:5 They do not consider so as to say.

Isaiah 1:6 JPS 1:6 From the sole of the foot even unto the head There is no soundness in it; But wounds, and bruises, and festering sores: They have not been pressed, neither bound up, Neither mollified with oil. TJBU 1:6 From the lowest of my people even unto the chief of them, there is not one amongst them who is perfect in my fear: all of them are disobedient and rebellious; they are polluted with sins, they are like an ulcerous wound; they have not forsaken their pride, neither long for repentance; they have also no righteousness to protect them. Isaiah 1:7 JPS 1:7 Your country is desolate; Your cities are burned with fire; Your land, strangers devour it in your presence, And it is desolate, as overthrown by floods.

Isaiah 1:11 JPS 1:11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto Me? Saith the LORD; I am full of the burnt-offerings of rams, And the fat of fed beasts; And I delight not in the blood Of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he-goats. TJBU 1:11 I have no pleasure in the multitude of your holy sacrifices, saith the Lord: I am full with the abundance of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts, and the blood of bullocks, and of lambs, and of he-goats; for in such I have no pleasure.

Tread not my courts; Isaiah 1:13 JPS 1:13 Bring no more vain oblations; It is an offering of abomination unto Me; New moon and sabbath, the holding of convocations— I cannot endure iniquity along with the solemn assembly.

Isaiah 1:15 JPS 1:15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide Mine eyes from you; Yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear; Your hands are full of blood. TJBU 1:15 When your priests are spreading out their hands to pray for you, I shall make to ascend the presence of my Shekinah from you; and when you are multiplying prayer, it is not my pleasure to accept your prayer at your hands, they being full of the blood of the innocent.

The fatherless they judge not, and the cry of the widow does not come before them. Isaiah 1:24 JPS 1:24 Therefore saith the Lord, the LORD of hosts, The Mighty One of Israel: Ah, I will ease Me of Mine adversaries, And avenge Me of Mine enemies; TJBU 1:24 Therefore saith the Lord of the world, the Lord of hosts, the Mighty One of Israel, The city of Jerusalem, I will comfort her; but woe to the wicked, when I shall reveal myself, to render just recompense to the enemies of my people, and render vengeance to my enemies.
