Isaiah 59:4

Context

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.

Isaiah 59:14-15

Context

59:14 Justice is driven back;

godliness 4  stands far off.

Indeed, 5  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, 6 

for there is no justice.
