Isaiah 66:1-2

Yahweh

says, “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. What kind of house will you build to me? Where will I rest? For my hand has made all these things, and so all these things came to be,” says Yahweh: “but to this man will I look, even to he who is poor and of a contrite spirit, and who trembles at my word.”
Isaiah 66:1-2

Context

Isaiah 65 [25.] The wolf and the lamb will feed together,
and the lion will eat straw like the ox.
Dust will be the serpent’s food.
They will not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain,”
says Yahweh.

Isaiah 66 [1.] Yahweh says,

“Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool.
What kind of house will you build to me?
Where will I rest?
For my hand has made all these things,
and so all these things came to be,” says Yahweh:
“but to this man will I look,
even to he who is poor and of a contrite spirit,
and who trembles at my word.

He who kills an ox is as he who kills a man;
he who sacrifices a lamb, as he who breaks a dog’s neck;
he who offers an offering, as he who offers pig’s blood;
he who burns frankincense, as he who blesses an idol.
Yes, they have chosen their own ways,
and their soul delights in their abominations:
I also will choose their delusions,
and will bring their fears on them;
because when I called, no one answered;
when I spoke, they didn’t listen;
but they did that which was evil in my eyes,
and chose that in which I didn’t delight.”
