Matthew 12:7

But if you had known what this means, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, you would not have condemned the guiltless.
All Commentaries on Matthew 12:7 Go To Matthew 12

George Leo Haydock

AD 1849
Mercy, and not sacrifice. (Osee vi. 6.) The meaning of this is, if you then approve of the mercy of the high priest, who refreshed the famished fugitive David, why do you condemn my disciples? (St. Jerome)
