Psalm 50:8-14 King James Version

8  I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt offerings, to have been continually before me. 9  I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he goats out of thy folds. 10  For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. 11  I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine. [1] 12  If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof. 13  Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats? 14  Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High:

Psalm 51:16 King James Version

16  For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.

Psalm 51:17 King James Version

17  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

Micah 6:3 King James Version

3  O my people, what have I done unto thee? and wherein have I wearied thee? testify against me.



Micah 6:6-8 King James Version

What the LORD Requires

6  Wherewith shall I come before the Lord, and bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves of a year old? 7  Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body [2] for the sin of my soul? 8  He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk [3] humbly with thy God?
