Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:1 - Lo, the hand of Jehovah Hath not been shortened from saving, Nor heavy his ear from hearing.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:2 - But your iniquities have been separating Between you and your God, And your sins have hidden The Presence from you -- from hearing.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:3 - For your hands have been polluted with blood, And your fingers with iniquity, Your lips have spoken falsehood, Your tongue perverseness doth mutter.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:4 - There is none calling in righteousness, And there is none pleading in faithfulness, Trusting on emptiness, and speaking falsehood, Conceiving perverseness, and bearing iniquity.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:5 - Eggs of a viper they have hatched, And webs of a spider they weave, Whoso is eating their eggs doth die, And the crushed hatcheth a viper.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:6 - Their webs become not a garment, Nor do they cover themselves with their works, Their works are works of iniquity, And a deed of violence is in their hands.

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

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:8 - A way of peace they have not known, And there is no judgment in their paths, Their paths they have made perverse for themselves, No treader in it hath known peace.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:9 - Therefore hath judgment been far from us, And righteousness reacheth us not, We wait for light, and lo, darkness, For brightness -- in thick darkness we go,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:10 - We feel like the blind for the wall, Yea, as without eyes we feel, We have stumbled at noon as at twilight, In desolate places as the dead.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:11 - We make a noise as bears -- all of us, And as doves we coo sorely; We wait for judgment, and there is none, For salvation -- it hath been far from us.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:12 - For our transgressions have been multiplied before Thee, And our sins have testified against us, For our transgressions are with us, And our iniquities -- we have known them.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:13 - Transgressing, and lying against Jehovah, And removing from after our God, Speaking oppression and apostacy, Conceiving and uttering from the heart Words of falsehood.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:14 - And removed backward is judgment, And righteousness afar off standeth, For truth hath been feeble in the street, And straightforwardness is not able to enter,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:15 - And the truth is lacking, And whoso is turning aside from evil, Is making himself a spoil. And Jehovah seeth, and it is evil in His eyes, That there is no judgment.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:16 - And He seeth that there is no man, And is astonished that there is no intercessor, And His own arm giveth salvation to Him, And His righteousness -- it sustained Him.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:17 - And He putteth on righteousness as a breastplate, And an helmet of salvation on His head, And He putteth on garments of vengeance for clothing, And is covered, as with an upper-robe, with zeal.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:18 - According to deeds -- so He repayeth. Fury to His adversaries, their deed to His enemies, To the isles their deed He repayeth.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:19 - And they fear from the west the name of Jehovah, And from the rising of the sun -- His honour, When come in as a flood doth an adversary, The Spirit of Jehovah hath raised an ensign against him.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:20 - And come to Zion hath a redeemer, Even to captives of transgression in Jacob, An affirmation of Jehovah.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 59:21 - And I -- this is My covenant with them, said Jehovah, My Spirit that is on thee, And My words that I have put in thy mouth, Depart not from thy mouth, And from the mouth of thy seed, And from the mouth of thy seed's seed, said Jehovah, From henceforth unto the age!
