Bible: Hosea 6:6-9

6:6 For I delight in faithfulness, not simply in sacrifice;

I delight 1  in acknowledging God, not simply in whole burnt offerings. 2 

Indictments Against the Cities of Israel and Judah

6:7 At Adam 3  they broke 4  the covenant;

Oh how 5  they were unfaithful 6  to me!

6:8 Gilead is a city full of evildoers; 7 

its streets are stained with bloody footprints! 8 

6:9 The company of priests is like a gang of robbers,

lying in ambush to pounce on a victim.

They commit murder on the road to Shechem;

they have done heinous crimes!
