|1 Samuel 15:22|
22 And Samuel said, "Has the LORD a greater delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, than in obeying the voice of the LORD?1 Behold, to obey is better than to sacrifice, and to listen and heed is better than the fat of rams.
12 For whom the LORD loves, he corrects; even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights.
20 Those who are of a perverse heart are an abomination to the LORD; but those who are upright in their way are his delight.
22 Lying lips are abomination to the LORD, but those who deal truly are his delight.
8 The sacrifice [or prayer] of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD, but the prayer of the upright is his delight.2
|Jeremiah 9:24 |
24 But let him who glories, glory in this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD who exercises loving kindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth. For in these things, I delight,'" says the Lord.
