13 Go and learn what this means: I desire mercy [that is, [a]readiness to help those in trouble] and not sacrifice and sacrificial victims.

Micah 6:6-8World English Bible (WEB)

How shall I come before Yahweh,
    and bow myself before the exalted God?
Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,
    with calves a year old?
Will Yahweh be pleased with thousands of rams?
    With tens of thousands of rivers of oil?
Shall I give my firstborn for my disobedience?
    The fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
He has shown you, O man, what is good.
    What does Yahweh require of you, but to act justly,
    to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?

With what shall I come before the Lord and bow myself before God on high? Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old?

He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God?
