The Hebrew for Hosea 6:7 reads

"For faithfulness I desired and not sacrifice
The knowledge of God more than burnt offerings". [Literally it is "from
burnt offerings" but that is the normal idiomatic way of saying it in

Jesus' conformity to the Hebrew would be more authoritative than one of two
alternate readings from the Septuagint, no?
