Proverbs 21:27 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

27 The sacrifice of a wicked person is detestable—
how much more so
when he brings it with ulterior motives!

Proverbs 28:9 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Anyone who turns his ear away from hearing the law—
even his prayer is detestable.

Ecclesiastes 5:1 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Caution in God’s Presence

[a]Guard your steps when you go to the house of God. Better to draw near in obedience than to offer the sacrifice as fools do, for they ignorantly do wrong.

Isaiah 1:11 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

11 “What are all your sacrifices to Me?”
asks the Lord.
“I have had enough of burnt offerings and rams
and the fat of well-fed cattle;
I have no desire for the blood of bulls,
lambs, or male goats.

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.

Micah 6:7 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Would the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams
or with ten thousand streams of oil?
Should I give my firstborn for my transgression,
the child of my body for my own sin?
