51216. That the ancient sacrifice should be made void, and a new one should be celebrated.

In Isaiah: “For what purpose to me is the multitude of your sacrifices? saith the Lord: I am full; I will not have the burnt sacrifices of rams, and fat of lambs, and blood of bulls and goats. For who hath required these things from your hands?”38813881    Isa. i. 11, 12. Also in the forty-ninth Psalm: “I will not eat the flesh of bulls, nor drink the blood of goats. Offer to God the sacrifice of praise, and pay your vows to the Most High. Call upon me in the day of trouble, and I will deliver thee: and thou shalt glorify me.”38823882    Ps. l. 13–15. In the same Psalm, moreover: “The sacrifice of praise shall glorify me:  therein is the way in which I will show him the salvation of God.”38833883    Ps. l. 23. In the fourth Psalm too: “Sacrifice the sacrifice of righteousness, and hope in the Lord.”38843884    Ps. iv. 5. Likewise in Malachi:  “I have no pleasure concerning you, saith the Lord, and I will not have an accepted offering from your hands. Because from the rising of the sun, even unto the going down of the same, my name is glorified among the Gentiles; and in every place odours of incense are offered to my name, and a pure sacrifice, because great is my name among the nations, saith the Lord.”38853885    Mal. i. 10, 11. [P. 251, note 1, supra. The oblation of Melchizedek. Gen. xiv. 18. The Oxford translator adds, “with the incense of pious prayers.” See Justin, vol. i. p. 215, cap. xli., and Irenæus, vol. i. p. 484.]
