Isaiah 59
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1Behold the hand of LORD JEHOVAH is not too short to save, and his ear is not dull of hearing

2But your debts have separated between you and your God, and your sins turned his face from you that he will not hear

3Because your hands are polluted in blood and your fingers in evil. Your lips speak falsehood and your tongue devises evil

4And there is none who calls in righteousness and there is none who judges in faithfulness. They have trusted on emptiness and they have spoken emptiness; they have conceived evil and they have given birth to disease

5The eggs of the Dragon they have hatched, and the webs of spiders they have spun. He who eats of their eggs shall die, and what hatches out can slither

6Their webs will not be for clothing and they will not be sheltered by their works. Their works are the works of fraud and the works of evil are in their hands

7Their feet run to evil, and they hurry to shed innocent blood. Their thoughts are the thoughts of depravity and plunder is in their streets

8The path of peace they have not known and there is no judgment in their steps. They pervert their paths and no one who walks in them knows peace

9Because of this, judgment is far away from us and righteousness will not overtake us. We wait for the light and there has been darkness, and for the brightness, and in thick darkness we have walked

10We grope a wall like blind men, and we grope as those who have no eyes. We are stumbled at noonday as in the evening, and we groan as those who are close to dying

11We roar, all of us, like bears, and we moan like doves. We wait for justice, and there is none, and for redemption, and it is far from us

12Because our evil abounds before you, and our sins testify, because our evil is with us and we know our sins

13We have done evil and we have lied to LORD JEHOVAH, and we have turned away from after our God. We have spoken oppression and we rebelled. We were conceiving and meditating lying words from our heart

14We have turned judgment backward and we have stood righteousness at a distance, because the truth has fallen down in the road and reproof cannot come

15And the truth was in hiding and understanding passed by from our mind, and LORD JEHOVAH saw that there was no judgment, and it was evil in his eyes

16And he saw there was no man, and he was amazed that there was no helper, and his arm saved him, and his righteousness sustained him

17He wore righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on his head, and wore the garment of vengeance

18So that he shall be avenged of his haters, and he shall repay his enemies and to the islands he shall pay reward

19They shall stand in awe from the West before the name of LORD JEHOVAH, and from the dawning of the sun for his glory, because the oppressor shall come like a river, and The Spirit of LORD JEHOVAH will humiliate him

20And The Savior shall come to Zion, and those who turn back evil from Yaqob, says LORD JEHOVAH

21And I am this my covenant that is with you, says LORD JEHOVAH: my Spirit who is upon you and my words that I have set in your mouth; they shall not depart from your mouth and from the mouth of your seed, and from the mouth of the seed of your seed, says LORD JEHOVAH, from now and for eternity
