1 Samuel 15:22 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

22 Then Samuel said:

Does the Lord take pleasure in burnt offerings and sacrifices
as much as in obeying the Lord?

Look: to obey is better than sacrifice,
to pay attention is better than the fat of rams.

Jeremiah 6:20 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

20 What use to Me is frankincense from Sheba
or sweet cane from a distant land?
Your burnt offerings are not acceptable;
your sacrifices do not please Me.

Hosea 6:6 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

For I desire loyalty and not sacrifice,
the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.

Amos 5:21-24 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

21 I hate, I despise your feasts!
I can’t stand the stench
of your solemn assemblies.
22 Even if you offer Me
your burnt offerings and grain offerings,
I will not accept them;
I will have no regard
for your fellowship offerings of fattened cattle.
23 Take away from Me the noise of your songs!
I will not listen to the music of your harps.
24 But let justice flow like water,
and righteousness, like an unfailing stream.

Matthew 23:23 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

23 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You pay a tenth of[a] mint, dill, and cumin,[b] yet you have neglected the more important matters of the law—justice, mercy, and faith. These things should have been done without neglecting the others.


  1. Matthew 23:23 Or You tithe
  2. Matthew 23:23 A plant whose seeds are used as a seasoning

Mark 12:33 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

33 And to love Him with all your heart, with all your understanding,[a] and with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself, is far more important than all the burnt offerings and sacrifices.”


  1. Mark 12:33 Other mss add with all your soul
