Isaiah 591599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
59 1 The wicked perish through their own iniquities. 12 The confession of sins. 16 God alone will preserve his Church though all men fail.
1 Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save: neither is his ear heavy, that it cannot hear.
2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
3 For your hands are defiled with [a]blood, and your fingers with iniquity: your lips have spoken lies, and your tongue hath murmured iniquity.
6 Their webs shall be no garment, neither shall they cover themselves with their labors: for their works are works of iniquities, and the work of cruelty is in their hands.
7 Their feet turn to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are wicked thoughts: desolation and destruction is in their paths.
8 The way of peace they know not, and there is none equity in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein, shall not know peace.
10 We grope for the wall like the [h]blind, and we grope as one without eyes: we stumble at the noon day as in the twilight: we are in solitary places, as dead men.
11 We roar all like [i]bears, and mourn like doves: we look for equity, but there is none: for health, but it is far from us.
12 For our trespasses are many before thee, and our [j]sins testify against us: for our trespasses are with us, and we know our iniquities
13 In trespassing and lying against the Lord, and we have departed away from our God, and have spoken of cruelty and rebellion, conceiving and uttering out of the heart [k]false matters.
14 Therefore [l]judgment is turned backward, and justice standeth far off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.
15 Yea, truth faileth, and he that refraineth from evil, maketh himself [m]a prey: and when the Lord saw it, it displeased him, that there was no judgment.
17 For he put on righteousness, as an habergeon, and an [p]helmet of salvation upon his head, and he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak.
18 As to make recompense, as to requite the fury of the adversaries with a recompense to his enemies: he will fully repair the [q]islands.
19 So shall they fear the Name of the Lord from the West, and his glory from the rising of the Sun; for the enemy shall [r]come like a flood; but the Spirit of the Lord shall chase him away.
20 And the Redeemer shall come unto Zion, and unto [s]them that turn from iniquity in Jacob, saith the Lord.
21 And I will make this my Covenant with them, saith the Lord, My Spirit that is upon thee, and my words, which I have put in thy mouth, [t]shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of the seed of thy seed, saith the Lord, from henceforth even forever.
