Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear.
Behold, the LORD’S hand is not so short That it cannot save; Nor is His ear so dull That it cannot hear.
Listen! The LORD is not too weak to save you, and he is not becoming deaf. He can hear you when you call.
Look! Listen! GOD's arm is not amputated--he can still save. GOD's ears are not stopped up--he can still hear.
Truly, the Lord’s hand has not become short, so that he is unable to give salvation; and his ear is not shut from hearing:
See, the Lord’s hand is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear.
Behold, the LORD’S hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear.
