Hosea 6:5-7 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

For this reason I struck them down through the prophets,
    I killed them by the words of my mouth;[a]
    my judgment shines forth like the light.
For it is loyalty that I desire, not sacrifice,
    and knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.

Further Crimes of Israel

But they, at Adam,[b] violated the covenant;
    there they betrayed me.

Footnotes:

  1. 6:5 The word of God proclaimed by the prophets is effective, it accomplished what it promised: punishment.
  2. 6:7 At Adam: the violation of the covenant at Adam is mentioned nowhere else in the Bible. The place Adam, the location of which is unknown, may be referred to in Jos 3:16.
