GOD’S WORD Translation
5 That is why I cut you down by sending the prophets.
I killed you with the words from my mouth.
My judgments shined on you like light.
6 I want your loyalty, not your sacrifices.
I want you to know me, not to give me burnt offerings.
7 “Like Adam, you rejected the promise.[a]
You were unfaithful to me.
- Hosea 6:7 Or “You have walked all over my promise as if it were dirt.”
