Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:1 - Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened,
That it cannot save;
Nor His ear heavy,
That it cannot hear.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:2 - But your iniquities have separated you from your God;
And your sins have hidden His face from you,
So that He will not hear.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:3 - For your hands are defiled with blood,
And your fingers with iniquity;
Your lips have spoken lies,
Your tongue has muttered perversity.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:4 - No one calls for justice,
Nor does any plead for truth.
They trust in empty words and speak lies;
They conceive evil and bring forth iniquity.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:6 - Their webs will not become garments,
Nor will 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 have not known,
And there is no justice in their ways;
They have made themselves crooked paths;
Whoever takes that way shall not know peace.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:9 - Therefore justice is far from us,
Nor does righteousness overtake us;
We look for light, but there is darkness!
For brightness, but we walk in blackness!

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 noonday as at twilight;
We are as dead men in desolate places.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:11 - We all growl like bears,
And moan sadly like doves;
We look 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 testify against us;
For our transgressions are with us,
And as for our iniquities, we know them:

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:13 - In transgressing and lying against the LORD,
And departing from our God,
Speaking oppression and revolt,
Conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:14 - Justice is turned back,
And righteousness stands afar off;
For truth is fallen in the street,
And equity cannot enter.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:15 - So truth fails,
And he who departs from evil makes himself a prey.

Then the LORD saw it, and it displeased Him
That there was no justice.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:16 - He saw that there was no man,
And wondered that there was no intercessor;
Therefore His own arm brought salvation for Him;
And His own righteousness, it sustained Him.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:17 - For He put on righteousness as a breastplate,
And a helmet of salvation on His head;
He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing,
And was clad with zeal as a cloak.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:18 - According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay,
Fury to His adversaries,
Recompense to His enemies;
The coastlands He will fully repay.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:19 - So shall they fear
The name of the LORD from the west,
And His glory from the rising of the sun;
When the enemy comes in like a flood,
The Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:21 - “As for Me,” says the LORD, “this is My covenant with them: My Spirit who 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 descendants, nor from the mouth of your descendants’ descendants,” says the LORD, “from this time and forevermore.”
