Psalm 40:7 misquoted to support notion that God did not want sacrifices

Hebrews 10:5. Referring to Psalm 40:7 [40:6], Paul states, "Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldst not, but a body thou hast prepared me." The quotation is erroneous. The Psalmist says, "Sacrifice and offering thou wouldst not, mine ears thou hast opened; burnt offering and sin offering thou didst not desire." The Psalmist expressed by this, that obedience to God is the chief duty of man, and that listening to Him is better than an offering, and hearkening to Him "is more acceptable than the fat of rams."

That pious feelings, and not mere ceremonials, were the essential requisites, we have already demonstrated in the First Part of this work.

Note: chapter and verse numbers in brackets [] are the numbers used in the English bible.
