Bible: Isa 1:15-17

1:15 When you spread out your hands in prayer,

I look the other way; 1 

when you offer your many prayers,

I do not listen,

because your hands are covered with blood. 2 

1:16 3 

Wash! Cleanse yourselves!

Remove your sinful deeds 4 

from my sight.

Stop sinning!

1:17 Learn to do what is right!

Promote justice!

Give the oppressed reason to celebrate! 5 

Take up the cause of the orphan!

Defend the rights of the widow! 6
