The answer is found in Micah 6:8
Song by that same title:

Parallel Versions:

English Standard Version (©2001)
"He has told you, O (wo)man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?"

Expanded Bible (EXB)
"The Lord has told you, ·human [TO man], what is good;
he has told you what ·he wants [the Lord requires] from you:
to do what is ·right to other people [just],
love ·being kind to others [mercy; lovingkindness],
and ·live humbly, obeying [walk humbly with] your God."

Good News Translation (GNT)
"No, the Lord has told us what is good. What he requires of us is this: to do what is just, to show constant love, and to live in humble fellowship with our God."

The Message (MSG)
"But he’s already made it plain how to live, what to do,
what God is looking for in men and women.
It’s quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor,
be compassionate and loyal in your love,
And don’t take yourself too seriously—
take God seriously."

New Century Version (NCV)
"The Lord has told you, human, what is good;
he has told you what he wants from you:
to do what is right to other people,
love being kind to others,
and live humbly, obeying your God."

New Life Version (NLV)
"O man, He has told you what is good. What does the Lord ask of you but to do what is fair and to love kindness, and to walk without pride with your God?"
