Hosea 6:6; Matthew 23:23; Mark 12:33

For kI desire steadfast love1 and not sacrifice,

lthe knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.


23 dWoe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For eyou tithe mint and dill and fcumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: gjustice and mercy and faithfulness. hThese you ought to have done, without neglecting the others.


33 And to love him with all the heart and with all bthe understanding and with all the strength, and to love one's neighbor as oneself, cis much more than all dwhole burnt offerings and sacrifices.
