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.
59:14 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.
