False is the fasting, and foul is the purpose,
rich the injustice the Godless pursue;
this is the judgment we hear prophets speaking,
seeking to challenge, restore and renew.

Where are the humble and those who are open,
facing in honesty all they have done
Where are the righteous, the ones who seek justice,
welcoming outcasts, all those who may come

Verses 3-4 follow plus an alternative version for verse 3
