15 When you spread out your hands(A) in prayer,
    I hide(B) my eyes from you;
even when you offer many prayers,
    I am not listening.(C)

Your hands(D) are full of blood!(E)

16 Wash(F) and make yourselves clean.
    Take your evil deeds out of my sight;(G)
    stop doing wrong.(H)
17 Learn to do right;(I) seek justice.(J)
    Defend the oppressed.[a](K)
Take up the cause of the fatherless;(L)
    plead the case of the widow.(M)
