1 H2005 Behold, H3068 the LORD'S H3027 hand H7114 [H8804] is not shortened, H3467 [H8687] that it cannot liberate; H241 neither his ear H3513 [H8804] heavy, H8085 [H8800] that it cannot hear:
2 H5771 But your perversities H914 [H8688] have separated H996 between H430 you and your God, H2403 and your sins H5641 [H8689] have hid H6440 his face H8085 [H8800] from you, that he will not hear.
3 H3709 For your palms H1351 [H8738] are defiled H1818 with blood, H676 and your fingers H5771 with perversity; H8193 your lips H1696 [H8765] have spoken H8267 lies, H3956 your tongue H1897 [H8799] hath uttered H5766 distortion.
4 H7121 [H8802] None calleth H6664 for justice, H8199 [H8737] nor any pleadeth H530 for truth: H982 [H8800] they trust H8414 in vanity, H1696 [H8763] and speak H7723 lies; H2029 [H8800] they conceive H5999 mischief, H3205 [H8687] and bring forth H205 nothingness.
5 H1234 [H8765] They hatch H1000 eggs H6848 of an adder, H707 [H8799] and weave H5908 the spider's H6980 web: H398 [H8802] he that eateth H1000 of their eggs H4191 [H8799] dieth, H2116 and that which is crushed H1234 [H8735] breaketh out H660 into a viper.
6 H6980 Their webs H899 shall not become garments, H3680 [H8691] neither shall they cover H4639 themselves with their works: H4639 their works H4639 are works H205 of nothingness, H6467 and the act H2555 of violence H3709 is in their palms.
7 H7272 Their feet H7323 [H8799] run H7451 to evil, H4116 [H8762] and they make haste H8210 [H8800] to shed H5355 innocent H1818 blood: H4284 their thoughts H4284 are thoughts H205 of nothingness; H7701 wasting H7667 and fracturing H4546 are in their paths.
8 H1870 The way H7965 of peace H3045 [H8804] they know H4941 not; and there is no judgment H4570 in their goings: H6140 [H8765] they have made them crooked H5410 paths: H1869 [H8802] whoever goeth H3045 [H8804] in it shall not know H7965 peace.
9 H4941 Therefore is judgment H7368 [H8804] far H6666 from us, neither doth justice H5381 [H8686] overtake H6960 [H8762] us: we wait H216 for light, H2822 but behold obscurity; H5054 for brightness, H1980 [H8762] but we walk H653 in darkness.
10 H1659 [H8762] We grope H7023 for the wall H5787 like the blind, H1659 [H8762] and we grope H5869 as if we had no eyes: H3782 [H8804] we stumble H6672 at noonday H5399 as in the night; H820 we are in fat places H4191 [H8801] as dead men.
11 H1993 [H8799] We all roar H1677 like bears, H1897 [H8799] and mourn H1897 [H8800] bitterly H3123 like doves: H6960 [H8762] we look H4941 for judgment, H3444 but there is none; for salvation, H7368 [H8804] but it is far from us.
12 H6588 For our revolts H7231 [H8804] are multiplied H2403 before thee, and our sins H6030 [H8804] testify H6588 against us: for our revolts H5771 are with us; and as for our perversities, H3045 [H8804] we know them;
13 H6586 [H8800] In transgressing H3584 [H8763] and lying H3068 against the LORD, H5253 [H8800] and departing away H310 from H430 our God, H1696 [H8763] speaking H6233 oppression H5627 and revolt, H2029 [H8780] conceiving H1897 [H8774] and uttering H3820 from the heart H1697 words H8267 of falsehood.
14 H4941 And judgment H5253 [H8717] is turned away H268 backward, H6666 and justice H5975 [H8799] standeth H7350 afar off: H571 for truth H3782 [H8804] is fallen H7339 in the street, H5229 and equity H3201 [H8799] cannot H935 [H8800] enter.
15 H571 Yea, truth H5737 [H8737] faileth; H5493 [H8804] and he that departeth H7451 from evil H7997 [H8711] maketh himself a prey: H3068 and the LORD H7200 [H8799] saw H3415 H5869 [H8799] it, and it displeased H4941 him that there was no judgment.
16 H7200 [H8799] And he saw H376 that there was no man, H8074 [H8709] and wondered H6293 [H8688] that there was no intercessor: H2220 therefore his arm H3467 [H8686] brought liberation H6666 to him; and his righteousness, H5564 [H8804] it sustained him.
17 H3847 [H8799] For he put on H6666 righteousness H8302 as a breastplate, H3553 and an helmet H3444 of salvation H7218 upon his head; H3847 [H8799] and he put on H899 the garments H5359 of vengeance H8516 for clothing, H5844 [H8799] and was clad H7068 with zeal H4598 as a cloke.
18 H5921 According to H1578 their deeds, H7999 [H8762] accordingly he will repay, H2534 hot anger H6862 to his constricters, H1576 recompence H341 [H8802] to his enemies; H339 to the isles H7999 [H8762] he will repay H1576 recompence.
19 H3372 [H8799] So shall they fear H8034 the name H3068 of the LORD H4628 from the west, H3519 and his glory H4217 from the rising H8121 of the sun. H6862 When the constricter H935 [H8799] shall come in H5104 like a flood, H7307 the Spirit H3068 of the LORD H5127 [H8790] shall lift up a standard against him.
20 H1350 [H8802] And the Redeemer H935 [H8804] shall come H6726 to Zion, H7725 [H8802] and to them that turn H6588 from revolt H3290 in Jacob, H5002 [H8803] saith H3068 the LORD.
21 H1285 As for me, this is my covenant H559 [H8804] with them, saith H3068 the LORD; H7307 My spirit H1697 that is upon thee, and my words H7760 [H8804] which I have put H6310 in thy mouth, H4185 [H8799] shall not depart H6310 out of thy mouth, H6310 nor out of the mouth H2233 of thy seed, H6310 nor out of the mouth H2233 of thy seed's H2233 seed, H559 [H8804] saith H3068 the LORD, H5704 from henceforth and for H5769 ever.
