13 Go and learn (A)what this means, (B)‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’ For (C)I came not to call the righteous, (D)but sinners.”
7 And if you had known (A)what this means, (B)‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice’, you would not have condemned the guiltless.
22 And Samuel said,
(A)“Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord?Behold, (B)to obey is better than sacrifice, and to listen than the fat of rams.
