No sacrifices in the desert (Am 5:25-5:25)

“Did you bring to me

Sacrifices?

Did you bring to me

Offerings?

You were forty years

In the wilderness!

O house of Israel!”

As if to emphasize his point, Yahweh, via Amos, reminded them that during the 40 years in the wilderness desert, there were no sacrifices or offerings brought to him, since there was no Temple. This was always considered the golden age or the perfect time for the Israelites.
