1 “I made myself available to those who did not ask for me; I appeared to those who did not look for me. I said, ‘Here I am! Here I am!’ to a nation that did not invoke my name. 2 I spread out my hands all day long to my rebellious people, who lived in a way that is morally unacceptable and who did what they desired. 3 These people continually and blatantly offend me as they sacrifice in their sacred orchards and burn incense on brick altars.
LXX Isaiah 65:1
1 I became visible to those who were not seeking me; I was found by those who were not inquiring about me. I said, “Here I am,” to the nation that did not call my name. 2 I stretched out my hands all day long to a disobedient and contrary people, who did not walk in a true way but after their own sins. 3 These are the people who provoke me to my face continually; they sacrifice in the gardens and burn incense on bricks to the demons, which do not exist,
