8 I do not reprove you because of your sacrifices,
Nor because of your whole burnt offerings that are constantly before me.+
9 I do not need to take a bull from your house,
Nor goats* from your pens.+
10 For every wild animal of the forest is mine,+
Even the beasts upon a thousand mountains.
11 I know every bird of the mountains;+
The countless animals of the field are mine.
12 If I were hungry, I would not tell you,
For the productive land and everything in it is mine.+
13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls
And drink the blood of goats?+
14 Offer thanksgiving as your sacrifice to God,+
And pay your vows to the Most High;+
15 Call on me in the time of distress.+
I will rescue you, and you will glorify me.”+
