Psalm 40:7 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

[a]Sacrifice and offering you do not want;
    you opened my ears.
Holocaust and sin-offering you do not request;


  1. 40:7–9 Obedience is better than sacrifice (cf. 1 Sm 15:22; Is 1:10–20; Hos 6:6; Am 5:22–25; Mi 6:6–8; Acts 7:42–43 [quoting Am 5:25–26]). Hb 10:5–9 quotes the somewhat different Greek version and interprets it as Christ’s self-oblation.
