Hear the word of Yahweh,
You rulers of Sodom;
Give ear to the law of our God,
You people of Gomorrah. 11
“What are your multiplied sacrifices to Me?”
“I have had enough of burnt offerings of rams
And the fat of fed cattle;
And in the blood of bulls, lambs, or goats I take no pleasure. 12
When you come to appear before Me,
Who requires of you this trampling of My courts? 13
Bring your worthless offerings no longer,
Incense is an abomination to Me.
New moon and sabbath, the calling of convocation—
I cannot endure wickedness and the solemn assembly. 14
My soul hates your new moon festivals and your appointed times,
They have become a burden to Me;
I am weary of bearing them. 15
So when you spread out your hands in prayer,
I will hide My eyes from you;
Indeed, even though you multiply prayers,
I will not listen.
Your hands are full of blood.
“Wash yourselves, purify yourselves;
Remove the evil of your deeds from before My eyes.
Cease to do evil, 17
Learn to do good;
Reprove the ruthless,
Execute justice for the orphan,
Plead for the widow.
