CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
21:27 The sacrifice - All the most costly services which they offer to God. Because - As all the ancient translators render it, the Hebrew particle, aph, being expletive: or, even because; so the following clause gives the reason. A wicked mind - Not in obedience to God's command, but either to cover, or countenance, or promote some wicked design.

An Analysis of Augustin's Writings against the Donatists.
The LORD detests the sacrifice of the wicked, but he delights in the prayers of the upright.
God detests the prayers of a person who ignores the law.
As you enter the house of God, keep your ears open and your mouth shut. It is evil to make mindless offerings to God.
But those who choose their own ways--delighting in their detestable sins--will not have their offerings accepted. When such people sacrifice a bull, it is no more acceptable than a human sacrifice. When they sacrifice a lamb, it's as though they had sacrificed a dog! When they bring an offering of grain, they might as well offer the blood of a pig. When they burn frankincense, it's as if they had blessed an idol.
There's no use offering me sweet frankincense from Sheba. Keep your fragrant calamus imported from distant lands! I will not accept your burnt offerings. Your sacrifices have no pleasing aroma for me."
I will not accept your burnt offerings and grain offerings. I won't even notice all your choice peace offerings.
