13 Don’t bring any more worthless grain offerings.
Your incense is disgusting to me,
    so are your New Moon Festivals, your days of rest—holy days,
        and the assemblies you call.
I can’t stand your evil assemblies.
14 I hate your New Moon Festivals and your appointed festivals.
    They’ve become a burden to me,
        and I’m tired of putting up with them.
15 So when you stretch out your hands in prayer,
    I will turn my eyes away from you.
Even though you offer many prayers,
    I will not listen because your hands are covered with blood.
