Hosea 6:5-7 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
5 For this reason I struck them down through the prophets,
I killed them by the words of my mouth;
my judgment shines forth like the light.
6 For it is loyalty that I desire, not sacrifice,
and knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.
Further Crimes of Israel
7 But they, at Adam, violated the covenant;
there they betrayed me.
