6With what shall I come before the LORD and bow down before the exalted God? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old?
7Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousand rivers of olive oil? Shall I offer my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
8He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly Or prudently with your God.
