“17 The sacrifices of ‘G-d’ (Israel’s ‘Elohiym [the] Magistrates, Great, [the] Mighty – ones, etc..) are a broken ‘spirit’ (ruwach: expression(s), function(s), breath, etc..), A broken and a contrite heart—These, O ‘God’ (‘Elohiym), You will not despise.”
NO ONE SAID IT WOULD BE EASY, QUITE THE OPPOSITE. MAY YH BE PRAISED IN US!
