1 H2005 Behold H3068 , the LORD'S H3027 hand H7114 [H8804] is not shortened H3467 [H8687] , that it cannot save H241 ; neither his ear H3513 [H8804] heavy H8085 [H8800] , that it cannot hear:
2 H5771 But your iniquities 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 hands H1351 [H8738] are defiled H1818 with blood H676 , and your fingers H5771 with iniquity H8193 ; your lips H1696 [H8765] have spoken H8267 lies H3956 , your tongue H1897 [H8799] hath uttered H5766 perverseness.
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 iniquity.
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 iniquity H6467 , and the act H2555 of violence H3709 is in their hands.
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 iniquity H7701 ; wasting H7667 and destruction 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 desolate H4191 [H8801] places 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 transgressions H7231 [H8804] are multiplied H2403 before thee, and our sins H6030 [H8804] testify H6588 against us: for our transgressions H5771 are with us; and as for our iniquities 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 salvation 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 , fury H6862 to his adversaries 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 enemy 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 transgression 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.
