Listen to what the Lord says:

“Stand up, plead my case before the mountains;
      let the hills hear what you have to say.

“Hear, you mountains, the Lord’s accusation;
      listen, you everlasting foundations of the earth.
For the Lord has a case against his people;
      he is lodging a charge against Israel.

“My people, what have I done to you?
      How have I burdened you? Answer me.
I brought you up out of Egypt
      and redeemed you from the land of slavery.
I sent Moses to lead you,
      also Aaron and Miriam.
My people, remember
      what Balak king of Moab plotted
      and what Balaam son of Beor answered.
Remember your journey from Shittim to Gilgal,
      that you may know the righteous acts of the Lord.”

With what shall I come before the Lord
      and bow down before the exalted God?
Shall I come before him with burnt offerings,
      with calves a year old?
Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams,
      with ten thousand rivers of olive oil?
Shall I offer my firstborn for my transgression,
      the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
      And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
      and to walk humbly with your God.

Micah 6:1-8
