“Then will I instruct transgressors thy strategies and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

For thou desirest not sacrifice, else I would give it thou delightest not in burnt featuring. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit a broken and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.” Psalm 51:13-17
