Isaiah 1:10-17 World English Bible (WEB)

10 Hear Yahweh’s word, you rulers of Sodom!
    Listen to the law of our God,[a] you people of Gomorrah!
11 “What are the multitude of your sacrifices to me?”, says Yahweh.
    “I have had enough of the burnt offerings of rams,
    and the fat of fed animals.
    I don’t delight in the blood of bulls,
    or of lambs,
    or of male goats.
12 When you come to appear before me,
    who has required this at your hand, to trample my courts?
13 Bring no more vain offerings.
    Incense is an abomination to me;
    new moons, Sabbaths, and convocations:
    I can’t bear with evil assemblies.
14 My soul hates your New Moons and your appointed feasts.
    They are a burden to me.
    I am weary of bearing them.
15 When you spread out your hands, I will hide my eyes from you.
    Yes, when you make many prayers, I will not hear.
    Your hands are full of blood.
16 Wash yourselves, make yourself clean.
    Put away the evil of your doings from before my eyes.
    Cease to do evil.
17 Learn to do well.
    Seek justice.
    Relieve the oppressed.
    Judge the fatherless.
    Plead for the widow.”

God Has Had Enough

10 Hear the word of the Lord,
You rulers of Sodom;
Give ear to the instruction of our God,
You people of Gomorrah.
11 What are your multiplied sacrifices to Me?”
Says the Lord.
“I [a]have had enough of burnt offerings of rams
And the fat of fed cattle;
And I take no pleasure in the blood of bulls, lambs or goats.
12 “When you come to appear before Me,
Who requires [b]of you this trampling of My courts?
13 “Bring your worthless offerings no longer,
Incense is an abomination to Me.
New moon and sabbath, the calling of assemblies—
I cannot endure iniquity and the solemn assembly.
14 “I hate your new moon festivals and your appointed feasts,
They have become a burden to Me;
I am weary of bearing them.
15 “So when you spread out your hands in prayer,
I will hide My eyes from you;
Yes, even though you multiply prayers,
I will not listen.
Your hands are [c]covered with blood.

16 Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean;
Remove the evil of your deeds from My sight.
Cease to do evil,
17 Learn to do good;
Seek justice,
Reprove the ruthless,
[d]Defend the orphan,
Plead for the widow.
