Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:1 - Behold, the LORDS hand is not so short
That it cannot save;
Nor is His ear so dull
That it cannot hear.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:2 - But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God,
And your sins have hidden His [fn]face from you so that He does not hear.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:3 - For your hands are defiled with blood
And your fingers with iniquity;
Your lips have spoken falsehood,
Your tongue mutters wickedness.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:4 - No one sues righteously and no one pleads [fn]honestly.
They trust in confusion and speak lies;
They conceive mischief and bring forth iniquity.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:5 - They hatch adders’ eggs and weave the spider’s web;
He who eats of their eggs dies,
And from that which is crushed a snake breaks forth.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:6 - Their webs will not become clothing,
Nor will they cover themselves with their works;
Their works are works of iniquity,
And an act of violence is in their [fn]hands.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:7 - Their feet run to evil,
And they hasten to shed innocent blood;
Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity,
Devastation and destruction are in their highways.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:8 - They do not know the way of peace,
And there is no justice in their tracks;
They have made their paths crooked,
Whoever treads on [fn]them does not know peace.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:9 - Therefore justice is far from us,
And righteousness does not overtake us;
We hope for light, but behold, darkness,
For brightness, but we walk in gloom.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:10 - We grope along the wall like blind men,
We grope like those who have no eyes;
We stumble at midday as in the twilight,
Among those who are vigorous we are like dead men.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:11 - All of us growl like bears,
And moan sadly like doves;
We hope for justice, but there is none,
For salvation, but it is far from us.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:12 - For our transgressions are multiplied before You,
And our sins [fn]testify against us;
For our transgressions are with us,
And [fn]we know our iniquities:

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:13 - Transgressing and denying the LORD,
And turning away from our God,
Speaking oppression and revolt,
Conceiving in and uttering from the heart lying words.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:14 - Justice is turned back,
And righteousness stands far away;
For truth has stumbled in the street,
And uprightness cannot enter.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:15 - Yes, truth is lacking;
And he who turns aside from evil makes himself a prey.
Now the LORD saw,
And it was [fn]displeasing in His sight that there was no justice.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:16 - And He saw that there was no man,
And was astonished that there was no one to intercede;
Then His own arm brought salvation to Him,
And His righteousness upheld Him.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:17 - He put on righteousness like a breastplate,
And a helmet of salvation on His head;
And He put on garments of vengeance for clothing
And wrapped Himself with zeal as a mantle.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:18 - According to their [fn]deeds, [fn]so He will repay,
Wrath to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies;
To the coastlands He will [fn]make recompense.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:19 - So they will fear the name of the LORD from the west
And His glory from the rising of the sun,
For He will come like a [fn]rushing stream
Which the wind of the LORD drives.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:20 - “A Redeemer will come to Zion,
And to those who turn from transgression in Jacob,” declares the LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:21 - “As for Me, this is My covenant with them,” says the LORD: “My Spirit which is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your [fn]offspring, nor from the mouth of your [fn]offspring’s offspring,” says the LORD, “from now and forever.”
