Isaiah 59:1-8 CEBA

Alienation from God

1 Look! The LORD does not lack the power to save, nor are his ears too dull to hear,

References for Isaiah 59:1

      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.
