|Isaiah 59:14-18 |
14 And justice is turned away backward, and righteousness stands far off; for truth has fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.
15 Yes, truth fails; and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. And the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no justice.
16 And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor; therefore his own arm brought salvation for him; and his righteousness sustained him.
17 For he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and salvation as a helmet upon his head; and he put on garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak.
18 According to their deeds, he will repay, fury to his adversaries, repayment to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompense.
