Hear ye now what the Lord saith; Arise, contend thou before the mountains, and let the hills hear thy voice.

Wherewith shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old?

Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?

Son ta ny deiney berchagh oc nyn ard-hranlaasee, as ta ny cummaltee cur-rish breagyn, as ta'n chengey oc molteyragh ayns nyn meeal.

For the rich men thereof are full of violence, and the inhabitants thereof have spoken lies, and their tongue is deceitful in their mouth.

For the statutes of Omri are kept, and all the works of the house of Ahab, and ye walk in their counsels; that I should make thee a desolation, and the inhabitants thereof an hissing: therefore ye shall bear the reproach of my people.
