Isaiah 43:22-24

But thou hast not called upon me, O Jacob; but thou hast been weary of me, O Israel. Thou hast not brought me the small cattle of thy burnt offerings; neither hast thou honoured me with thy sacrifices. I have not caused thee to serve with an offering, nor wearied thee with incense. Thou hast bought me no sweet cane with money, neither hast thou filled me with the fat of thy sacrifices: but thou hast made me to serve with thy sins, thou hast wearied me with thine iniquities.

 

These verses revert to Israel’s pre-captivity days. The people were prayerless and they grew weary of God. Although they brought Him offerings in a perfunctory way, their hearts were far from God, so it was the same as if they brought no sacrifices. They only brought God their iniquities.
