“Not for your sacrifices do I rebuke you, for your burnt offerings are before me always.
I take from your house no bullock, no goats out of your fold.”
“Why do you recite my statutes, and profess my covenant with your mouth,
Though you hate discipline and cast my words behind you?”
“When you do these things, shall I be deaf to it?
Or do you think that I am like yourself?
I will correct you by drawing them up before your eyes.
He that offers praise as a sacrifice glorifies me; and to him that goes the right way I will show the salvation of God.” – Psalms 50(49):8-9.16bc-17.21.23.
