Isaiah 59:3-5

Context

59:3 For your hands are stained with blood

and your fingers with sin;

your lips speak lies,

your tongue utters malicious words.

59:4 No one is concerned about justice; 1 

no one sets forth his case truthfully.

They depend on false words 2  and tell lies;

they conceive of oppression 3 

and give birth to sin.

59:5 They hatch the eggs of a poisonous snake

and spin a spider’s web.

Whoever eats their eggs will die,

a poisonous snake is hatched. 4 

Isaiah 59:13

we tell lies we concocted in our minds. 6
