Micah 6:7-9 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

Will the Lord be pleased with a thousand rams
    or with ten thousand rivers of oil?
Should I offer him my first child to pay for my wrongs?
    Should I sacrifice my very own child for my sins?

Human, the Lord has told you what goodness is.
    This is what he wants from you:
Be fair to other people.
    Love kindness and loyalty,
    and humbly obey your God.

The Lord shouts to the city:
“A wise person respects the Lord’s name.[a]
    So pay attention to the punishing rod and to the one who uses it![b]
