Abstract This is a detailed study on the prophetic literature on sacrificial cults in the Hebrew Bible. It addresses a problem that has created much scholarly controversy. Namely, the different attitudes in the prophetic literature of The Hebrew Bible towards the sacrificial cult. This controversy is the subject of debate because the interpretation of sacrificial rituals is still disputed. Even more disputed is the literature of its criticism in prophetic literature. It has been suggested that the prophetic "No!" to sacrifices that can be heard in some passages of the Hebrew Bible. This was not meant in an absolute sense. The author discusses the nuances of interpreting prophetic tendencies towards sacrifices at different times in The Bible. At many points in The Bible a prophecy is made regarding sacrifices. The conclusion drawn by the author might be startling. Concluding that sacrifice was of central importance in the life of Israel and Judah, even to the prophets, the case is made that sacrifice was an integral part of The Hebrew Bible.
