• Psalm 51:16-17
    For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it;
    You do not delight in burnt offering.
    The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit,
    A broken and a contrite heart—
    These, O God, You will not despise.
     
  • Psalm 51:10
    Create in me a clean heart, O God,
    And renew a steadfast spirit within me.

     
  • Micah 6:6-8
    With what shall I come before the LORD,
    And bow myself before the High God?
    Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings,
    With calves a year old?
    Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams,
    Ten thousand rivers of oil?
    Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression,
    The fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
    He has shown you, O man, what is good;
    And what does the LORD require of you
    But to do justly,
    To love mercy,
    And to walk humbly with your God?
