Isaiah 59:15-16

Context

59:15 Honesty has disappeared;

the one who tries to avoid evil is robbed.

The Lord watches and is displeased, 1 

for there is no justice.

The Lord Intervenes

59:16 He sees there is no advocate; 2 

he is shocked 3  that no one intervenes.

So he takes matters into his own hands; 4 

his desire for justice drives him on. 5 

1 tn Heb “and it is displeasing in his eyes.”

3 tn Or “appalled” (NAB, NIV, NRSV), or “disgusted.”

4 tn Heb “and his arm delivers for him.”

5 tn Heb “and his justice [or “righteousness”] supports him.”
