Do not be deceived:
God cannot be mocked.
A man reaps what he sows.
As dead flies give perfume a bad smell,
so a little folly outweighs wisdom and honor.
When the sentence for a crime
is not quickly carried out,
the hearts of the people are
filled with schemes to do wrong.
1 Samuel 15:22, 23
But Samuel replied:
Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices
as much as in obeying the voice of the Lord?
To obey is better than sacrifice,
and to heed is better than the fat of rams.
For rebellion is like the sin of divination,
and arrogance like the evil of idolatry.
Because you have rejected the word of the Lord,
he has rejected you as king.
