Isaiah 59
New Living Translation
59Listen! The Lord’s arm is not too weak to save you, nor is his ear too deaf to hear you call.H2005H3068H3027H7114H3467H241H3513H8085 2It’s your sins that have cut you off from God. Because of your sins, he has turned away and will not listen anymore.H5771H914H996H430H2403H5641H6440H8085 3Your hands are the hands of murderers, and your fingers are filthy with sin. Your lips are full of lies, and your mouth spews corruption.H3709H1351H1818H676H5771H8193H1696H8267H3956H1897H5766 4No one cares about being fair and honest. The people’s lawsuits are based on lies. They conceive evil deeds and then give birth to sin.H7121H6664H8199H530H982H8414H1696H7723H2029H5999H3205H205 5They hatch deadly snakes and weave spiders’ webs. Whoever falls into their webs will die, and there’s danger even in getting near them.H1234H6848H1000H707H5908H6980H398H1000H4191H2116H1234H660 6Their webs can’t be made into clothing, and nothing they do is productive. All their activity is filled with sin, and violence is their trademark.H6980H899H3680H4639H4639H4639H205H6467H2555H3709 7Their feet run to do evil, and they rush to commit murder. They think only about sinning. Misery and destruction always follow them.H7272H7323H7451H4116H8210H5355H1818H4284H4284H205H7701H7667H4546 8They don’t know where to find peace or what it means to be just and good. They have mapped out crooked roads, and no one who follows them knows a moment’s peace.H1870H7965H3045H4941H4570H6140H5410H1869H3045H7965 9So there is no justice among us, and we know nothing about right living. We look for light but find only darkness. We look for bright skies but walk in gloom.H4941H7368H6666H5381H6960H216H2822H5054H1980H653 10We grope like the blind along a wall, feeling our way like people without eyes. Even at brightest noontime, we stumble as though it were dark. Among the living, we are like the dead.H1659H7023H5787H1659H5869H3782H6672H5399H820H4191 11We growl like hungry bears; we moan like mournful doves. We look for justice, but it never comes. We look for rescue, but it is far away from us.H1993H1677H1897H1897H3123H6960H4941H3444H7368 12For our sins are piled up before God and testify against us. Yes, we know what sinners we are.H6588H7231H2403H6030H6588H5771H3045 13We know we have rebelled and have denied the Lord. We have turned our backs on our God. We know how unfair and oppressive we have been, carefully planning our deceitful lies.H6586H3584H3068H5253H310H430H1696H6233H5627H2029H1897H3820H1697H8267 14Our courts oppose the righteous, and justice is nowhere to be found. Truth stumbles in the streets, and honesty has been outlawed.H4941H5253H268H6666H5975H7350H571H3782H7339H5229H3201H935 15Yes, truth is gone, and anyone who renounces evil is attacked. The Lord looked and was displeased to find there was no justice.H571H5737H5493H7451H7997H3068H7200H3415H5869H4941 16He was amazed to see that no one intervened to help the oppressed. So he himself stepped in to save them with his strong arm, and his justice sustained him.H7200H376H8074H6293H2220H3467H6666H5564 17He put on righteousness as his body armor and placed the helmet of salvation on his head. He clothed himself with a robe of vengeance and wrapped himself in a cloak of divine passion.H3847H6666H8302H3553H3444H7218H3847H899H5359H8516H5844H7068H4598 18He will repay his enemies for their evil deeds. His fury will fall on his foes. He will pay them back even to the ends of the earth.H5921H1578H7999H2534H6862H1576H341H339H7999H1576 19In the west, people will respect the name of the Lord; in the east, they will glorify him. For he will come like a raging flood tide driven by the breath of the Lord.H3372H8034H3068H4628H3519H4217H8121H6862H935H5104H7307H3068H5127 20“The Redeemer will come to Jerusalem to buy back those in Israel who have turned from their sins,” says the Lord.H1350H935H6726H7725H6588H3290H5002H3068 21“And this is my covenant with them,” says the Lord. “My Spirit will not leave them, and neither will these words I have given you. They will be on your lips and on the lips of your children and your children’s children forever. I, the Lord, have spoken!H1285H559H3068H7307H1697H7760H6310H4185H6310H6310H2233H6310H2233H2233H559H3068H5704H5769
