And when ye spread forth your hands
That is, in prayer, this being a prayer gesture: hence the Targum
``and when the priests spread out their hands to pray for you.''
I will hide mine eyes from you
will not look upon them, nor regard their prayer; see ( Lamentations
) yea, when ye make many prayers
as the Scribes and Pharisees did in Christ's time, and thought to
be heard for their much speaking, like the Gentiles, ( Matthew 6:7
will not hear
so as to give an answer, or fulfil their requests: the reason
follows, your hands are full of blood
of the prophets of the Lord, of Christ and his followers, whom they
put to death.
