Blood Sacrifice 6:
The Verses

The passages of scripture that speak against the ritual sacrifices.
If you look... you may find even more.
And this may help you understand many of the other scriptures, as well.

2Chron 2:6
"But who is able to build him a house, seeing the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain him? who am I then, that I should build him a house, save only to burn sacrifice before him?"

I Samuel 15:22
"Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolotry."

Psalm 40:6
"Sacrifice and offering you did not desire; my ears have you opened; burnt offering and sin offering have you not required."

Psalm 50:12
"If I were hungry, I would not tell you: for the world is mine and the fullness thereof. Will I eat the flesh of bulls or drink the blood of goats?"

Psalm 51:16
"Thou desirest not sacrifice, else I would give it; thou delightest not in burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit. A broken and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise."

Isaiah 1:12
"I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats. My gut is full of blood. When you come to appear before Me, who has required this of your hand, to tread my courts? Bring no more vain oblations."

Hosea 6:6
"Therefore have I hewed them by the Prophets; I have slain them by the words of my mouth; and thy judgments are as the light that goes forth. For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings. But they like men have transgressed the covenant; there have they dealt treacherously against me."

Exodus 32:20
Moses "took the calf which they had made, and burnt it in the fire, and ground it to powder, and strewn it upon the water, and made the children of Israel drink of it."

Isaiah 66:1
The heaven is my throne and the earth is my footstool, where is the house that you would build me? where is the place of my rest?..... he that kills an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrifices a lamb, as if he cut off a dog's neck; he that offers an oblation as if he offered swines blood; he that burns incense as if he blessed an idol.

Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delights in their obominations. I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called none did answer; when I spake they did not hear; but they did evil before my eyes and chose that in which I delighted not."
