9 If one turns away his ear from hearing the law,
even his qprayer is an abomination.
2 cbut your iniquities have made a separation
between you and your God,
and your sins have hidden his face from you
so that he does not hear.
3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask zwrongly, to spend it on your passions.
9 bWill God hear his cry
when distress comes upon him?
