even though there is no injustice in my hands, and my prayer has been pure.
if thou would seek God early and make thy supplication to the Almighty,
if there is any iniquity in thy hand and thou dost put it far away and dost not consent that wickedness dwell in thy habitations,

For the congregation of the hypocrites shall be made desolate, and fire shall consume the tents of bribery.
Behold, I know your thoughts and the imaginations which ye devise against me.
Certainly thy wickedness is great and thine iniquities have no end.

but let man and beast be covered with sackcloth and cry mightily unto God; and let each one turn from his evil way and from the violence that is in his hands.
