Sacrifices of Righteousness

Answer me when I call, God of my righteousness. Give me relief from my distress. Have mercy on me, and hear my prayer.  You sons of men, how long shall my glory be turned into dishonor? Will you love vanity, and seek after falsehood? Selah.  But know that Yahweh has set apart for himself him who is godly: Yahweh will hear when I call to him.  Stand in awe, and don’t sin. Search your own heart on your bed, and be still. Selah.  Offer the sacrifices of righteousness. Put your trust in Yahweh.  Many say, “Who will show us any good?” Yahweh, let the light of your face shine on us.   You have put gladness in my heart, more than when their grain and their new wine are increased.  In peace I will both lay myself down and sleep, for you, Yahweh alone, make me live in safety.  Psalms 4

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit. A broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.  Do well in your good pleasure to Zion. Build the walls of Jerusalem.  Then you will delight in the sacrifices of righteousness, in burnt offerings and in whole burnt offerings. Then they will offer bulls on your altar.  Psalms 51:17-19

“But who can endure the day of his coming? And who will stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner’s fire, and like launderers’ soap; and he will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and he will purify the sons of Levi, and refine them as gold and silver; and they shall offer to Yahweh offerings in righteousness.  Malachi 3:2,3

Therefore I urge you, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service.  Don’t be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what is the good, well-pleasing, and perfect will of God. Romans 12:1,2

But I have all things, and abound. I am filled, having received from Epaphroditus the things that came from you, a sweet-smelling fragrance, an acceptable and well-pleasing sacrifice to God. Philippians 4:18

You also, as living stones, are built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. I Peter 2:5

Offer to God the sacrifice of thanksgiving. Pay your vows to the Most High.  Call on me in the day of trouble. I will deliver you, and you will honor me.”  But to the wicked God says, “What right do you have to declare my statutes, that you have taken my covenant on your lips,  since you hate instruction, and throw my words behind you?   When you saw a thief, you consented with him, and have participated with adulterers.  “You give your mouth to evil. Your tongue frames deceit.  You sit and speak against your brother. You slander your own mother’s son.   You have done these things, and I kept silent. You thought that I was just like you. I will rebuke you, and accuse you in front of your eyes.  “Now consider this, you who forget God, lest I tear you into pieces, and there be no one to deliver. Whoever offers the sacrifice of thanksgiving glorifies me, and prepares his way so that I will show God’s salvation to him.”  Psalm 50:14-23

I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.  It will please Yahweh better than an ox, or a bull that has horns and hoofs.  The humble have seen it, and are glad. You who seek after God, let your heart live. Psalms 69:30-32

Let them praise Yahweh for his loving kindness, for his wonderful deeds to the children of men!   Let them offer the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his deeds with singing.  Psalm 107:21,22

Take words with you, and return to Yahweh. Tell him, “Forgive all our sins, and accept that which is good: so we offer our lips like bulls. Hosea 14:2

The priests stood, according to their positions; the Levites also with instruments of music of Yahweh, which David the king had made to give thanks to Yahweh, when David praised by their ministry, saying “For his loving kindness endures forever.” The priests sounded trumpets before them; and all Israel stood. 2 Chronicles 7:6

Through him, then, let’s offer up a sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of lips which proclaim allegiance to his name.  But don’t forget to be doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.  Hebrews 13:15,16

What will I give to Yahweh for all his benefits toward me?  I will take the cup of salvation, and call on Yahweh’s name.  I will pay my vows to Yahweh, yes, in the presence of all his people. Precious in Yahweh’s sight is the death of his saints.  Yahweh, truly I am your servant. I am your servant, the son of your servant. You have freed me from my chains.  I will offer to you the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call on Yahweh’s name.  I will pay my vows to Yahweh, yes, in the presence of all his people,  in the courts of Yahweh’s house, in the middle of you, Jerusalem. Praise Yah! Psalm 116:12-19

What will I give?


“‘This is the law of the sacrifice of peace offerings, which one shall offer to Yahweh.   If he offers it for a thanksgiving, then he shall offer with the sacrifice of thanksgiving unleavened cakes mixed with oil, and unleavened wafers anointed with oil, and cakes mixed with oil.  With cakes of leavened bread he shall offer his offering with the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving.   Of it he shall offer one out of each offering for a heave offering to Yahweh. It shall be the priest’s who sprinkles the blood of the peace offerings.  The flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving shall be eaten on the day of his offering. He shall not leave any of it until the morning.  Leviticus 7:11-15
