zHath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices,
As in obeying the voice of the Lord?
Behold, ato obey is better than sacrifice,
And to hearken than the fat of rams.
23 For rebellion is as the sin of †witchcraft,
And stubbornness is as iniquity and bidolatry.
Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord,
cHe hath also rejected thee from being king.
