can't make anything out (of something)

To fail or be unable to understand, decipher, or make sense (of something). I tried reading the hieroglyphs on the ancient tablet, but it was so worn that I wasn't able to make anything out. See if you can figure out what this contract is saying—I wasn't able to make anything out of all that legal mumbo jumbo.
