Isaiah 1:13-15 The Passion Translation (TPT)

13 Stop bringing your meaningless offerings.[a]
    Your burning incense stinks!
    Your sin-stained celebrations,[b]
    your new moon festivals, Sabbaths,
    your various pious meetings—I can’t stand them!
14 With all my soul[c] I hate
    your new moon festivals and your feasts;[d]
    they are nothing but a burden
    that I’m sick and tired of carrying.
15 When you stretch out your hands to pray,
    I will hide my eyes from you.[e]
    Repeat your prayers all you want, but I will not listen,
    for your hands are stained with innocent blood.


  1. Isaiah 1:13 Or “your gifts of nothing.”
  2. Isaiah 1:13 Or “iniquity and obligatory assemblies,” a likely hendiadys. See also Jer. 7:11.
  3. Isaiah 1:14 God has a soul with emotions and desires. He is perfect throughout.
  4. Isaiah 1:14 God calls them “your feasts,” not his (Lev. 23:2). Their celebrations had become so shame-fully sin-stained that God didn’t even want his holy name associated with their sinful conduct on those sacred days. See Amos 5:21– 24.
  5. Isaiah 1:15 See 1 Tim. 2:8; Ps. 66:18.
