Isaiah 59:12-1512For our transgressions are multiplied before you,
and our sins testify against us;
for our transgressions are with us,
and we know our iniquities:
13transgressing, and denying the Lord,
and turning back from following our God,
aspeaking oppression and revolt,
conceiving and uttering from the heart lying words.
Judgment and Redemption14 bJustice is turned back,
and righteousness stands far away;
for truth has stumbled in the public squares,
and uprightness cannot enter.
15Truth is lacking,
and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey.
The Lord saw it, and it displeased him ▼
▼Hebrew and it was evil in his eyes
that there was no justice.
