12 I have written for him (A)the great things of My law,
But they were considered a strange thing.
13 For the sacrifices of My offerings (B)they sacrifice flesh and eat it,
(C)But the Lord does not accept them.
(D)Now He will remember their iniquity and punish their sins.
They shall return to Egypt.

14 “For(E) Israel has forgotten (F)his Maker,
And has built [a]temples;
Judah also has multiplied (G)fortified cities;
But (H)I will send fire upon his cities,
And it shall devour his [b]palaces.”
