Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams,1 with ten thousand rivers of oil?2 Shall I offer my firstborn3 for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?4
He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly5 and to love mercy and to walk humbly6 with your God.7
