With what shall I come before the Lord
and bow myself before God on high?
Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings?
Shall I come before Him with yearling calves?
Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,
with ten thousand rivers of oil?
Shall I give Him my firstborn for my transgressions,
the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
He has told you, O Man.
He has told you what is good:
And what does the Lord require of you?
But to do justice,
and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly,
walk humbly with your God.
Micah 6 (paraphrased, because I keep thinking of a song based on it)
