Psalm 51:16

16  wFor you will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it;

you will not be pleased with a burnt offering.

1 Samuel 15:22

22 And Samuel said,

wHas the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices,

as in obeying the voice of the Lord?

Behold, xto obey is better than sacrifice,

and to listen than the fat of rams.

Hebrews 10:5–7

Consequently, bwhen Christ1 came into the world, he said,

cSacrifices and offerings you have not desired,

but a body have you prepared for me;

in burnt offerings and sin offerings

you have taken no pleasure.

Then I said, Behold, I have come to do your will, O God,

as it is written of me in the scroll of the book.

Proverbs 21:3

bTo do righteousness and justice

is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.
