14 My soul hateth your [a]new moons and your appointed feasts: they are a burden unto me: I am weary to bear them.
15 And when you shall stretch out your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: and though ye make many prayers, I will not hear: for your hands are full [b]of blood.
16 [c]Wash you, make you clean, take away the evil of your works from before mine eyes: cease to do evil.
Isaiah 1:14Your sacrifices offered in the new moons and feasts: he condemneth hereby hypocrites, which think to please God with ceremonies, and they themselves are void of faith and mercy.
Isaiah 1:15He showeth that where men be given to avarice, deceit, cruelty and extortion, which is meant by blood, there God will show his anger, and not accept them, though they seem never so holy, as Isa. 59:3.
Isaiah 1:16By this outward washing, he meaneth the spiritual: exhorting the Jews to repent and amend their lives.
