Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:1 - Behold, Jehovah's hand is not shortened that it cannot save, neither his ear heavy that it cannot hear;

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:2 - but your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he doth not hear.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:3 - For your hands are stained with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips speak lies, your tongue muttereth unrighteousness:

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:4 - none calleth for justice, none pleadeth in truthfulness. They trust in vanity, and speak falsehood; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:5 - They hatch serpents' eggs, and weave the spider's web: he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:6 - Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works; their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:7 - Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths;

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:8 - the way of peace they know not, and there is no judgment in their goings; they have made their paths crooked: whoso goeth therein knoweth not peace.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:9 - Therefore is justice far from us, and righteousness overtaketh us not: we wait for light, and behold darkness; for brightness, but we walk in obscurity.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:10 - We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at midday as in the twilight; amongst the flourishing we are as the dead.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:11 - We roar all like bears, and mourn grievously like doves: we look for judgment, and there is none; for salvation, but it is far from us.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:12 - For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our sins testify against us; for our transgressions are with us; and our iniquities, we know them:

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:13 - in transgressing and lying against Jehovah, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:14 - And judgment is turned away backward, and righteousness standeth afar off; for truth stumbleth in the street, and uprightness cannot enter.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:15 - And truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey. And Jehovah saw it, and it was evil in his sight that there was no judgment.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:16 - And he saw that there was no man, and he wondered that there was no intercessor; and his arm brought him salvation, and his righteousness, it sustained him.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:17 - And he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:18 - According to deeds, so will he repay: fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompence.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:19 - And they shall fear the name of Jehovah from the west, and from the rising of the sun, his glory. When the adversary shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of Jehovah will lift up a banner against him.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:20 - And the Redeemer will come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith Jehovah.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:21 - And as for me, this is my covenant with them, saith Jehovah: My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith Jehovah, from henceforth and for ever.
