6 With what shall I come beforec the Lord
and bow down before the exalted God?
Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,
with calves a year old?d
7 Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,e
with ten thousand rivers of olive oil?f
Shall I offer my firstborng for my transgression,
the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?h
8 He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justlyi and to love mercy
