New International Version
5 Therefore I cut you in pieces with my prophets,
I killed you with the words of my mouth(A)—
then my judgments go forth like the sun.[a](B)
6 For I desire mercy, not sacrifice,(C)
and acknowledgment(D) of God rather than burnt offerings.(E)
7 As at Adam,[b] they have broken the covenant;(F)
they were unfaithful(G) to me there.
