 <<  Yesaya 59 >> 

1The LORD's arm is not too short to save nor his ear too dull to hear;

2rather, it is your iniquities that raise a barrier between you and your God; it is your sins that veil his face, so that he does not hear.

3Your hands are stained with blood and your fingers with crime; your lips speak lies and your tongues utter injustice.

4No one sues with just cause, no one makes an honest plea in court; all rely on empty words, they tell lies, they conceive mischief and bring forth wickedness.

5They hatch snakes' eggs; they weave cobwebs. Whoever eats those eggs will die, for rottenness hatches from rotten eggs.

6Their webs are useless for making cloth; no one can use them for clothing. Their works breed wickedness and their hands are full of acts of violence.

7They rush headlong into crime in furious haste to shed innocent blood; their schemes are harmful and leave a trail of havoc and ruin.

8They are strangers to the path of peace, no justice guides their steps; all the ways they choose are crooked; no one who walks in them feels safe.

9That is why justice is far removed from us, and righteousness is out of our reach. We look for light, but all is darkness; for daybreak, but we must walk in deep gloom.

10We grope like blind men along a wall, feeling our way like those whose sight has gone; we stumble at noonday as if it were nightfall, like the dead in the desolate underworld.

11All of us growl like bears, we keep moaning like doves; we wait for justice, but there is none, for deliverance, but it is far from us.

12Our transgressions against you are many, and our sins bear witness against us; our transgressions are on our minds, and well we know our guilt:

13we have rebelled and broken faith with the LORD, we have relapsed and forsaken our God; we have conceived lies in our hearts and repeated them in slanderous and treacherous words.

14Justice is rebuffed and flouted while righteousness stands at a distance; truth stumbles in court and honesty is kept outside,

15so truth is lost to sight, and those who shun evil withdraw. There was no justice, and when the LORD saw it he was displeased.

16He saw that there was no help forthcoming and was outraged that no one intervened; so his own might brought him the victory and his righteousness supported him.

17He put on righteousness as a breastplate and salvation as a helmet on his head; he put on the garments of vengeance and wrapped zeal about him like a cloak.

18According to their deeds he will repay: for his adversaries, anger; for his enemies, retribution!

19So from the west the LORD's name will be feared, and his glory revered from the rising of the sun. His glory will come like a swift river on which the wind of the LORD moves.

20He will come as a redeemer to Zion and to those in Jacob who repent of their rebellion. This is the word of the LORD.

21This, says the LORD, is my covenant, which I make with them: My spirit which rests on you and my words which I have put into your mouth will never fail you from generation to generation of your descendants from now on, for evermore. The LORD has said it.
