1 Cry out! Cease not! Exalt your voice like a trumpet, and announce to my people their wicked acts, and to the house of Jacob their sins.
2 For they also seek me, from day to day, and they are willing to know my ways, like a nation which has done justice and has not abandoned the judgment of their God. They petition me for judgments of justice. They are willing to draw near to God.
3 'Why have we fasted, and you have not taken notice? Why have we humbled our souls, and you have not acknowledged it?' Behold, in the day of your fasting, your own will is found, and you petition for payment from all your debtors.
