6 Listen to what the Lord says:
“Stand up, plead my case before the mountains;m
let the hills hear what you have to say.
listen, you everlasting foundations of the earth.
For the Lord has a casep against his people;
he is lodging a chargeq against Israel.
4 I brought you up out of Egyptt
and redeemed you from the land of slavery.u
I sent Mosesv to lead you,
what Balaky king of Moab plotted
and what Balaam son of Beor answered.
that you may know the righteous actsb of the Lord.”
6 With what shall I come beforec the Lord
and bow down before the exalted God?
Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,
with calves a year old?d
7 Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,e
with ten thousand rivers of olive oil?f
Shall I offer my firstborng for my transgression,
the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?h
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justlyi and to love mercy
