Isaiah 59 (WEBP)

[1] Behold, Yahweh’s hand is not shortened, that it can’t save; nor his ear dull, that it can’t hear.
[2] But your iniquities have separated you and your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.
[3] For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity. Your lips have spoken lies. Your tongue mutters wickedness.
[4] No one sues in righteousness, and no one pleads in truth. They trust in vanity and speak lies. They conceive mischief and give birth to iniquity.
[5] They hatch adders’ eggs and weave the spider’s web. He who eats of their eggs dies; and that which is crushed breaks out into a viper.
[6] Their webs won’t become garments. They won’t cover themselves with their works. Their works are works of iniquity, and acts of violence are in their hands.
[7] Their feet run to evil, and they hurry to shed innocent blood. Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity. Desolation and destruction are in their paths.
[8] They don’t know the way of peace; and there is no justice in their ways. They have made crooked paths for themselves; whoever goes in them doesn’t know peace.
[9] Therefore justice is far from us, and righteousness doesn’t overtake us. We look for light, but see darkness; for brightness, but we walk in obscurity.
[10] We grope for the wall like the blind. Yes, we grope as those who have no eyes. We stumble at noon as if it were twilight. Among those who are strong, we are like dead men.
[11] We all roar like bears and moan sadly like doves. We look for justice, but there is none, for salvation, but it is far off from us.
[12] For our transgressions are multiplied before you, and our sins testify against us; for our transgressions are with us, and as for our iniquities, we know them:
[13] transgressing and denying Yahweh, and turning away from following our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.
[14] Justice is turned away backward, and righteousness stands far away; for truth has fallen in the street, and uprightness can’t enter.
[15] Yes, truth is lacking; and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. Yahweh saw it, and it displeased him that there was no justice.
[16] He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor. Therefore his own arm brought salvation to him; and his righteousness sustained him.
[17] He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of salvation on his head. He put on garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a mantle.
[18] According to their deeds, he will repay as appropriate: wrath to his adversaries, recompense to his enemies. He will repay the islands their due.
[19] So they will fear Yahweh’s name from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun; for he will come as a rushing stream, which Yahweh’s breath drives.
[20] “A Redeemer will come to Zion, and to those who turn from disobedience in Jacob,” says Yahweh.
[21] “As for me, this is my covenant with them,” says Yahweh. “My Spirit who is on you, and my words which I have put in your mouth shall not depart out of your mouth, nor out of the mouth of your offspring, nor out of the mouth of your offspring’s offspring,” says Yahweh, “from now on and forever.”

Isaiah 59 (KJVS)

[1] Behold H2005, the LORD’S H3068 hand H3027 is not shortened H7114 (8804), that it cannot save H3467 (8687); neither his ear H241 heavy H3513 (8804), that it cannot hear H8085 (8800):
[2] But your iniquities H5771 have separated H914 (8688) between H996 you and your God H430, and your sins H2403 have hid H5641 (8689) [his] face H6440 from you, that he will not hear H8085 (8800).
[3] For your hands H3709 are defiled H1351 (8738) with blood H1818, and your fingers H676 with iniquity H5771; your lips H8193 have spoken H1696 (8765) lies H8267, your tongue H3956 hath muttered H1897 (8799) perverseness H5766.
[4] None calleth H7121 (8802) for justice H6664, nor [any] pleadeth H8199 (8737) for truth H530: they trust H982 (8800) in vanity H8414, and speak H1696 (8763) lies H7723; they conceive H2029 (8800) mischief H5999, and bring forth H3205 (8687) iniquity H205.
[5] They hatch H1234 (8765) cockatrice H6848’ eggs H1000, and weave H707 (8799) the spider’s H5908 web H6980: he that eateth H398 (8802) of their eggs H1000 dieth H4191 (8799), and that which is crushed H2116 breaketh out H1234 (8735) into a viper H660.
[6] Their webs H6980 shall not become garments H899, neither shall they cover H3680 (8691) themselves with their works H4639: their works H4639 [are] works H4639 of iniquity H205, and the act H6467 of violence H2555 [is] in their hands H3709.
[7] Their feet H7272 run H7323 (8799) to evil H7451, and they make haste H4116 (8762) to shed H8210 (8800) innocent H5355 blood H1818: their thoughts H4284 [are] thoughts H4284 of iniquity H205; wasting H7701 and destruction H7667 [are] in their paths H4546.
[8] The way H1870 of peace H7965 they know H3045 (8804) not; and [there is] no judgment H4941 in their goings H4570: they have made them crooked H6140 (8765) paths H5410: whosoever goeth H1869 (8802) therein shall not know H3045 (8804) peace H7965.
[9] Therefore is judgment H4941 far H7368 (8804) from us, neither doth justice H6666 overtake H5381 (8686) us: we wait H6960 (8762) for light H216, but behold obscurity H2822; for brightness H5054, [but] we walk H1980 (8762) in darkness H653.
[10] We grope H1659 (8762) for the wall H7023 like the blind H5787, and we grope H1659 (8762) as if [we had] no eyes H5869: we stumble H3782 (8804) at noonday H6672 as in the night H5399; [we are] in desolate H820 places as dead H4191 (8801) [men].
[11] We roar H1993 (8799) all like bears H1677, and mourn H1897 (8799) sore H1897 (8800) like doves H3123: we look H6960 (8762) for judgment H4941, but [there is] none; for salvation H3444, [but] it is far off H7368 (8804) from us.
[12] For our transgressions H6588 are multiplied H7231 (8804) before thee, and our sins H2403 testify H6030 (8804) against us: for our transgressions H6588 [are] with us; and [as for] our iniquities H5771, we know H3045 (8804) them;
[13] In transgressing H6586 (8800) and lying H3584 (8763) against the LORD H3068, and departing away H5253 (8800) from H310 our God H430, speaking H1696 (8763) oppression H6233 and revolt H5627, conceiving H2029 (8780) and uttering H1897 (8774) from the heart H3820 words H1697 of falsehood H8267.
[14] And judgment H4941 is turned away H5253 (8717) backward H268, and justice H6666 standeth H5975 (8799) afar off H7350: for truth H571 is fallen H3782 (8804) in the street H7339, and equity H5229 cannot H3201 (8799) enter H935 (8800).
[15] Yea, truth H571 faileth H5737 (8737); and he [that] departeth H5493 (8804) from evil H7451 maketh himself a prey H7997 (8711): and the LORD H3068 saw H7200 (8799) [it], and it displeased H3415 (8799) H5869 him that [there was] no judgment H4941.
[16] And he saw H7200 (8799) that [there was] no man H376, and wondered H8074 (8709) that [there was] no intercessor H6293 (8688): therefore his arm H2220 brought salvation H3467 (8686) unto him; and his righteousness H6666, it sustained H5564 (8804) him.
[17] For he put on H3847 (8799) righteousness H6666 as a breastplate H8302, and an helmet H3553 of salvation H3444 upon his head H7218; and he put on H3847 (8799) the garments H899 of vengeance H5359 [for] clothing H8516, and was clad H5844 (8799) with zeal H7068 as a cloke H4598.
[18] According to H5921 [their] deeds H1578, accordingly he will repay H7999 (8762), fury H2534 to his adversaries H6862, recompence H1576 to his enemies H341 (8802); to the islands H339 he will repay H7999 (8762) recompence H1576.
[19] So shall they fear H3372 (8799) the name H8034 of the LORD H3068 from the west H4628, and his glory H3519 from the rising H4217 of the sun H8121. When the enemy H6862 shall come in H935 (8799) like a flood H5104, the Spirit H7307 of the LORD H3068 shall lift up a standard H5127 (8790) against him.
[20] And the Redeemer H1350 (8802) shall come H935 (8804) to Zion H6726, and unto them that turn H7725 (8802) from transgression H6588 in Jacob H3290, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068.
[21] As for me, this [is] my covenant H1285 with them, saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068; My spirit H7307 that [is] upon thee, and my words H1697 which I have put H7760 (8804) in thy mouth H6310, shall not depart H4185 (8799) out of thy mouth H6310, nor out of the mouth H6310 of thy seed H2233, nor out of the mouth H6310 of thy seed’s H2233 seed H2233, saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068, from henceforth and for H5704 ever H5769.

Young’s Literal Translation

Isaiah 59 (YLT)

[1] Lo, the hand of Jehovah Hath not been shortened from saving, Nor heavy his ear from hearing.
[2] But your iniquities have been separating Between you and your God, And your sins have hidden The Presence from you-from hearing.
[3] For your hands have been polluted with blood, And your fingers with iniquity, Your lips have spoken falsehood, Your tongue perverseness doth mutter.
[4] There is none calling in righteousness, And there is none pleading in faithfulness, Trusting on emptiness, and speaking falsehood, Conceiving perverseness, and bearing iniquity.
[5] Eggs of a viper they have hatched, And webs of a spider they weave, Whoso is eating their eggs doth die, And the crushed hatcheth a viper.
[6] Their webs become not a garment, Nor do they cover themselves with their works, Their works are works of iniquity, And a deed of violence is in their hands.
[7] Their feet to evil do run, And they haste to shed innocent blood, Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity, Spoiling and destruction are in their highways.
[8] A way of peace they have not known, And there is no judgment in their paths, Their paths they have made perverse for themselves, No treader in it hath known peace.
[9] Therefore hath judgment been far from us, And righteousness reacheth us not, We wait for light, and lo, darkness, For brightness-in thick darkness we go,
[10] We feel like the blind for the wall, Yea, as without eyes we feel, We have stumbled at noon as at twilight, In desolate places as the dead.
[11] We make a noise as bears-all of us, And as doves we coo sorely; We wait for judgment, and there is none, For salvation-it hath been far from us.
[12] For our transgressions have been multiplied before Thee, And our sins have testified against us, For our transgressions are with us, And our iniquities-we have known them.
[13] Transgressing, and lying against Jehovah, And removing from after our God, Speaking oppression and apostasy, Conceiving and uttering from the heart Words of falsehood.
[14] And removed backward is judgment, And righteousness afar off standeth, For truth hath been feeble in the street, And straightforwardness is not able to enter,
[15] And the truth is lacking, And whoso is turning aside from evil, Is making himself a spoil. And Jehovah seeth, and it is evil in His eyes, That there is no judgment.
[16] And He seeth that there is no man, And is astonished that there is no intercessor, And His own arm giveth salvation to Him, And His righteousness-it sustained Him.
[17] And He putteth on righteousness as a breastplate, And an helmet of salvation on His head, And He putteth on garments of vengeance for clothing, And is covered, as with an upper-robe, with zeal.
[18] According to deeds-so He repayeth. Fury to His adversaries, their deed to His enemies, To the isles their deed He repayeth.
[19] And they fear from the west the name of Jehovah, And from the rising of the sun-His honour, When come in as a flood doth an adversary, The Spirit of Jehovah hath raised an ensign against him.
[20] And come to Zion hath a redeemer, Even to captives of transgression in Jacob, An affirmation of Jehovah.
[21] And I-this is My covenant with them, said Jehovah, My Spirit that is on thee, And My words that I have put in thy mouth, Depart not from thy mouth, And from the mouth of thy seed, And from the mouth of thy seed’s seed, said Jehovah, From henceforth unto the age!
