Hosea 6:5-7 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

Therefore I have hewn them by the prophets,
    I have killed them by the words of my mouth,
    and my[a] judgment goes forth as the light.
For I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice,
    the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.

But at[b] Adam they transgressed the covenant;
    there they dealt faithlessly with me.
