That is, I will punish the Egyptians, the Judeans, the Edomites, the Ammonites, the Moabites, and all the desert people who cut their hair short at the temples. 1 I will do so because none of the people of those nations are really circumcised in the Lord’s sight. 2 Moreover, none of the people of Israel 3 are circumcised when it comes to their hearts.” 4
When you bring foreigners, those uncircumcised in heart and in flesh, into my sanctuary, you desecrate 1 it – even my house – when you offer my food, the fat and the blood. You 2 have broken my covenant by all your abominable practices.
