Isaiah 59

59:1 Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened, that it cannot
 save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:
59:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your
 God, and your sins have hid [his] face from you, that he will
 not hear.
59:3 For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers
 with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath
 uttered perverseness.
59:4 None calleth for justice, nor [any] pleadeth for truth:
 they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief,
 and bring forth iniquity.
59:5 They hatch cockatrice eggs, and weave the spider's web: he
 that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed
 breaketh out into a viper.
59:6 Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they
 cover themselves with their works: their works [are] works of
 iniquity, and the act of violence [is] in their hands.
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.
59:8 The way of peace they know not; and [there is] no judgment
 in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whoever
 goeth therein shall not know peace.
59:9 Therefore is judgment far from us, neither doth justice
 overtake us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for
 brightness, [but] we walk in darkness.
59:10 We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if
 [we had] no eyes: we stumble at noon day as in the night; [we
 are] in desolate places as dead [men].
59:11 We all roar like bears, and mourn bitterly like doves: we
 look for judgment, but [there is] none; for salvation, [but] it
 is far from us.
59:12 For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our
 sins testify against us: for our transgressions [are] with us;
 and [as for] our iniquities, we know them;
59:13 In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing
 away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving
 and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.
59:14 And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth
 afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot
59:15 Yes, truth faileth; and he [that] departeth from evil
 maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw [it], and it displeased
 him that [there was] no judgment.
59:16 And he saw that [there was] no man, and wondered that
 [there was] no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation
 to him; and his righteousness, it sustained him.
59:17 For he put on righteousness as a breast-place, and a
 helmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on the garments
 of vengeance [for] clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloke.
59:18 According to [their] deeds, accordingly he will repay,
 fury to his adversaries, recompense to his enemies; to the
 isles he will repay recompense.
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 shall come
 in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard
 against him.
59:20 And the Redeemer will come to Zion, and to them that turn
 from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD.
59:21 As for me, this [is] my covenant with them, saith the
 LORD; My spirit that [is] upon thee, and my words which I have
 put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of
 the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed,
 saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever.
