Hosea 6.6
Septuagint

dioti eleoV qelw h qusian
 

New Testament - Matthew 9.13

eleoV qelw kai ou qusian

Matthew 12.7

eleoV qelw kai ou qusian

Septuagint

For I will have mercy rather than sacrifice

New Testament

Matthew 9.13:  I desire mercy, and not sacrifice

Matthew 12.7:  I desire mercy, and not sacrifice

Masoretic Text

For I desire goodness, and not sacrifice

Comments:  The NT and the LXX agree.  The MT includes the idea of “goodness” instead of “mercy.”  The RSV translates:  “For I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice.”  The Hebrew word is chesed

Hosea 6.6 in Codex Alexandrinus reads “eleoV qelw kai ou qusian,” exactly as the NT.
