Micah 6:7-9 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
7 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?
8 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.

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