Isaiah 59:13-15


59:13 We have rebelled and tried to deceive the Lord;

we turned back from following our God.

We stir up 1  oppression and rebellion;

we tell lies we concocted in our minds. 2 

59:14 Justice is driven back;

godliness 3  stands far off.

Indeed, 4  honesty stumbles in the city square

and morality is not even able to enter.

59:15 Honesty has disappeared;

the one who tries to avoid evil is robbed.

The Lord watches and is displeased, 5 

for there is no justice.
