Context Readings

What Does Yahweh Require?

6 With what shall I come before the LORD, and bow myself before the high God? shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old? 7 Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, or with ten thousands of rivers of oil? shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? 8 He has showed you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?
