13 Don’t continue bringing me ·worthless [meaningless; futile] sacrifices!
    ·I hate the incense you burn [L Incense is detestable/an abomination to me].
I can’t stand your New Moons, Sabbaths, and ·other feast days [convocations; sacred assemblies];
    I can’t ·stand [endure] ·the evil you do in your holy meetings [L sin and assembly].
14 I hate your New Moon ·feasts [festivals; Num. 28:11–15]
    and your ·other yearly [annual; appointed] feasts.
They have become a ·heavy weight on [burden to] me,
    and I ·am tired of carrying it [or can no longer tolerate them].
15 When you ·raise your arms to me [L spread out your hands] in prayer,
    I will ·refuse to look at [look the other way; L hide my eyes from] you.
Even if you say many prayers,
    I will not listen to you,
because your hands are ·full of [covered with] blood.
