“aHas the Lord as much delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices
As in obeying the voice of the Lord?
Behold, bto obey is better than sacrifice,
And to heed than the fat of rams.
23 “For rebellion is as the sin of adivination,
And insubordination is as biniquity and idolatry.
Because you have rejected the word of the Lord,
cHe has also rejected you from being king.”
