Micah 6:6-8 World 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?

Micah 6:6-8 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

What God Requires of Man

With what shall I come to the Lord
And bow myself before the God on high?
Shall I come to Him with burnt offerings,
With yearling calves?
Does the Lord take delight in thousands of rams,
In ten thousand rivers of oil?
Shall I present my firstborn for my rebellious acts,
The fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
He has told you, O man, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you
But to do justice, to love [a]kindness,
And to walk [b]humbly with your God?
