Alienation from God

1 Look! The LORD does not lack the power to save, nor are his ears too dull to hear, 2 but your misdeeds have separated you from your God. Your sins have hidden his face from you so that you aren't heard. 3 Your hands are stained with blood, and your fingers with guilt. Your lips speak lies; your tongues mutter malice. 4 No one sues honestly; no one pleads truthfully. By trusting in emptiness and speaking deceit, they conceive harm and give birth to malice. 5 They hatch adders' eggs, and weave spiderwebs. Whoever eats their eggs will die. Moreover, the crushed egg hatches a viper. 6 Their webs can't serve as clothing; they can't cover themselves with their deeds. Their deeds are deeds of malice, and the work of violence is in their hands. 7 Their feet run to evil; they rush to shed innocent blood. Their thoughts are thoughts of malice; desolation and destruction litter their highways. 8 They don't know the way of peace; there's no justice in their paths. They make their roads crooked; no one who walks in them knows peace.
