Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Isaiah 1:15

_ _ (Psalms 66:18; Proverbs 28:9; Lamentations 3:43, Lamentations 3:44).

_ _ spread ... hands — in prayer (1 Kings 8:22). Hebrew, “bloods,” for all heinous sins, persecution of God’s servants especially (Matthew 23:35). It was the vocation of the prophets to dispel the delusion, so contrary to the law itself (Deuteronomy 10:16), that outward ritualism would satisfy God.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Isaiah 1:10-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Isaiah 1:15

Blood — You are guilty of murder, and oppression.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Isaiah 1:15

And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide my eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full (x) of blood.

(x) He shows that where men are given to evil, deceit, cruelty and extortion, which is meant by blood, there God will show his anger and not accept them though they seem holy, as in (Isaiah 59:3).
