Deuteronomy 21:6-8; Psalm 26:6; Psalm 73:13

And all the elders of that city nearest to the slain man cshall wash their hands over the heifer whose neck was broken in the valley, and they shall testify, Our hands did not shed this blood, nor did our eyes see it shed. Accept atonement, O Lord, for your people Israel, whom you have redeemed, and ddo not set the guilt of innocent blood in the midst of your people Israel, so that their blood guilt be atoned for.


I awash my hands in innocence

and go around your altar, O Lord,


13  All in vain have I pkept my heart clean

and qwashed my hands in innocence.
