Hosea 6:6-7,9

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 6 For I desire mercy and not sacrifice, and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.

 7 But they like men [and Adam] have transgressed the covenant; there they have dealt treacherously against me.

 9 And as troops of robbers wait for a man, so the company of priests murder on the way to Shechem [a city of refuge]; surely they commit lewdness.
