Deuteronomy 21:6

Hebrew Bible

4 and bring the heifer down to a wadi with flowing water, to a valley that is neither plowed nor sown. There at the wadi they are to break the heifer’s neck. 5 Then the Levitical priests will approach (for the Lord your God has chosen them to serve him and to pronounce blessings in his name, and to decide every judicial verdict) , 6 and all the elders of that city nearest the corpse must wash their hands over the heifer whose neck was broken in the valley. 7 Then they must proclaim, “Our hands have not spilled this blood, nor have we witnessed the crime. 8 Do not blame your people Israel whom you redeemed, O Lord, and do not hold them accountable for the bloodshed of an innocent person.” Then atonement will be made for the bloodshed.

Psalm 73:13

Hebrew Bible

11 They say, “How does God know what we do? Is the Most High aware of what goes on?” 12 Take a good look. This is what the wicked are like, those who always have it so easy and get richer and richer. 13 I concluded, “Surely in vain I have kept my motives pure and washed my hands in innocence.25 14 I suffer all day long and am punished every morning.” 15 If I had publicized these thoughts, I would have betrayed your people.
