Isaiah 59
Good News Translation
59Don't think that the LORD is too weak to save you or too deaf to hear your call for help!H2005H3068H3027H7114H3467H241H3513H8085 2It is because of your sins that he doesn't hear you. It is your sins that separate you from God when you try to worship him.H5771H914H996H430H2403H5641H6440H8085 3You are guilty of lying, violence, and murder.H3709H1351H1818H676H5771H8193H1696H8267H3956H1897H5766 4You go to court, but you do not have justice on your side. You depend on lies to win your case. You carry out your plans to hurt others.H7121H6664H8199H530H982H8414H1696H7723H2029H5999H3205H205 5The evil plots you make are as deadly as the eggs of a poisonous snake. Crush an egg, out comes a snake!H1234H6848H1000H707H5908H6980H398H1000H4191H2116H1234H660 6But your plots will do you no good—they are as useless as clothing made of cobwebs!H6980H899H3680H4639H4639H4639H205H6467H2555H3709 7You are always planning something evil, and you can hardly wait to do it. You never hesitate to murder innocent people. You leave ruin and destruction wherever you go,H7272H7323H7451H4116H8210H5355H1818H4284H4284H205H7701H7667H4546 8and no one is safe when you are around. Everything you do is unjust. You follow a crooked path, and no one who walks that path will ever be safe.H1870H7965H3045H4941H4570H6140H5410H1869H3045H7965 9The people say, "Now we know why God does not save us from those who oppress us. We hope for light to walk by, but there is only darkness,H4941H7368H6666H5381H6960H216H2822H5054H1980H653 10and we grope about like blind people. We stumble at noon, as if it were night, as if we were in the dark world of the dead.H1659H7023H5787H1659H5869H3782H6672H5399H820H4191 11We are frightened and distressed. We long for God to save us from oppression and wrong, but nothing happens.H1993H1677H1897H1897H3123H6960H4941H3444H7368 12" LORD, our crimes against you are many. Our sins accuse us. We are well aware of them all.H6588H7231H2403H6030H6588H5771H3045 13We have rebelled against you, rejected you, and refused to follow you. We have oppressed others and turned away from you. Our thoughts are false; our words are lies.H6586H3584H3068H5253H310H430H1696H6233H5627H2029H1897H3820H1697H8267 14Justice is driven away, and right cannot come near. Truth stumbles in the public square, and honesty finds no place there.H4941H5253H268H6666H5975H7350H571H3782H7339H5229H3201H935 15There is so little honesty that those who stop doing evil find themselves the victims of crime." The LORD has seen this, and he is displeased that there is no justice.H571H5737H5493H7451H7997H3068H7200H3415H5869H4941 16He is astonished to see that there is no one to help the oppressed. So he will use his own power to rescue them and to win the victory.H7200H376H8074H6293H2220H3467H6666H5564 17He will wear justice like a coat of armor and saving power like a helmet. He will clothe himself with the strong desire to set things right and to punish and avenge the wrongs that people suffer.H3847H6666H8302H3553H3444H7218H3847H899H5359H8516H5844H7068H4598 18He will punish his enemies according to what they have done, even those who live in distant lands.H5921H1578H7999H2534H6862H1576H341H339H7999H1576 19From east to west everyone will fear him and his great power. He will come like a rushing river, like a strong wind.H3372H8034H3068H4628H3519H4217H8121H6862H935H5104H7307H3068H5127 20The LORD says to his people, "I will come to Jerusalem to defend you and to save all of you that turn from your sins.H1350H935H6726H7725H6588H3290H5002H3068 21And I make a covenant with you: I have given you my power and my teachings to be yours forever, and from now on you are to obey me and teach your children and your descendants to obey me for all time to come."H1285H559H3068H7307H1697H7760H6310H4185H6310H6310H2233H6310H2233H2233H559H3068H5704H5769
