As the Redeemer to save Jacob from their sins and iniquities and become Israel's light and glory forever
Jehovah's hand not being so short that it cannot save
No, Jehovah’s hand is not aso
short that it cannot save;
Nor is His ear so heavy that it cannot hear.
But your iniquities have become a separation
Between you and your God,
And your sins have hidden His face
From you so that He does anot
The sins and iniquities of Jacob
For your hands are defiled with ablood
And your fingers with iniquity;
Your lips have spoken falsehood,
Your tongue has muttered injustice.
No one sues righteously,
And no one pleads in truth;
They trust in vanity and speak lies; aThey
conceive mischief and bring forth iniquity.
They hatch adders’ eggs
And weave the spider’s web;
He who eats of their eggs dies,
And that which is crushed breaks forth into a viper.
Their webs will not become garments,
Nor will they cover themselves with their works;
Their works are works of iniquity,
And an act of violence is in their palms.
feet run toward evil,
And they hasten to shed innocent blood;
Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; bDesolation
and destruction are in their highways.
way of peace they do not know,
And there is no justice in their course;
They have made their paths crooked;
Whoever goes on it does not know peace.
The issue of Jacob's sins and iniquities
Therefore justice is far from us,
And righteousness does not overtake us;
We look eagerly for light, but, ah, darkness,
For brightness, but we walk in gloom.
men at the wall;
We grope like those without eyes;
We stumble at midday as we would at dusk;
Among the 1prospering
we are like dead men.
All of us roar like bears
And moan incessantly like doves;
We look eagerly for justice, but there is none,
For salvation, but it is far from us.
For our transgressions are multiplied before You,
And our sins respond to You against us;
For our transgressions are with us,
And as for our iniquities, we know what they are:
Transgressing and denying Jehovah,
And turning away from our God;
Speaking oppression and revolt,
Conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.
And justice is turned back,
And righteousness stands far off;
For truth has stumbled in the street,
And uprightness cannot come in.
The saving of Jehovah's arm (Christ as the Servant of Jehovah having the dynamic might of Jehovah) toward Jacob
And truth is lacking,
And he who turns from evil becomes plunder.
And Jehovah saw it, and it was evil in His sight
That there was no justice.
And He saw that there was ano
And He was bappalled
that there was no intercessor.
Therefore His 1carm
accomplished salvation for Him,
And His righteousness sustained Him.
Thus He put on righteousness as a abreastplate
And a bhelmet
of salvation upon His head;
And He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing
And wrapped Himself with zeal as a mantle.
According to their dealings, so will He repay:
Wrath to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies;
To the coastlands He will repay with recompense.
So they will fear the name of Jehovah from the west,
And His glory from the arising
of the sun;
When the adversary comes like a flood,
The Spirit of Jehovah will lift up a standard against him.
will come to Zion,
And unto those who turn from transgression in Jacob,
And as for Me, this is My 1covenant
with them, says Jehovah: My 2aSpirit
which is upon you and My bwords
which I have put in your mouth shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your seed, nor from the mouth of your seed’s seed, says Jehovah, from now and forever.
