Hosea 6:5-7 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

I used the prophets
    and made laws for the people.
The people were killed at my command,
    but good things will come from those decisions.[a]
This is because I want faithful love,
    not sacrifice.
I want people to know God,
    not to bring burnt offerings.
But the people broke the agreement as Adam did.[b]
    They were unfaithful to me in their country.
