Isaiah Colossians

Isaiah chapter 59 and the epistle of Colossians.

FE 1The hand of the Master is not so short that it cannot save nor is his ear dull that it cannot hear, 2but it is your iniquities that have separated you and your god and your sins have hidden his face from you that he will not hear. 3For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue mutters wickedness. 4There is no one who calls for justice, nor is there anyone who judges faithfully; they trust in vanity and speak lies; they conceive iniquity and bring forth grief. 5They hatch adder's eggs, and weave a spider's web; he who eats of their eggs will die, and those which hatch out will be found to be vipers. 6Their webs will not become garments, nor will they cover themselves with their works; their works are works of iniquity, and acts of violence are in their hands. 7Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; plunder and destruction are in their paths. 8The way of peace they do not know; and there is no justice in their ways; they have made their paths crooked; whoever walks in them will not know peace. Q Romans 3:15-17 Isaiah 59:1-89Therefore justice is far from us, and righteousness does not overtake us; we wait for light, but obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness. 10We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope like men who have no eyes; we stumble at noonday as in the night; we groan as those who are near death. 11We all roar like bears, and mourn severely like doves; we look for justice, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far off from us. Isaiah 59:9-111|4 12For our transgressions are many before you, 2|4 and our sins testify against us, 3|4 for our iniquities are with us, 4|4 and our sins are well known: 1|6 13Doing evil, 2|6 and lying against the Master, 3|6 and turning away from following our god, 4|6 speaking oppression, 5|6 and conceiving revolt, 6|6 and devising in our heart words of falsehood. 1|6 14Judgment is turned backward, 2|6 and righteousness stands far away, 3|6 for truth is fallen in the street, 4|6 and equity cannot enter, 5|6 15yes, truth is hidden, 6|6 and understanding has departed from our mind. Isaiah 59:12-15The Master saw that there was no judgment, and it was displeasing in his eyes. 16He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no one to help, and his arm brought salvation to him, and his righteousness sustained him. 17For he put on 1|3 righteousness as a breastplate, 2|3 and a helmet of salvation on his head, 3|3 and he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, 1|3 18that he may seek vengeance on those who hate him, 2|3 and retribution to his adversaries, 3|3 and to the islands he will render repayment. 19They will fear the name of the Master from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun, for he will come like a flood that the wind of the Master drives. Isaiah 59:15-1920A savior will come to Zion, and to those who turn back evil from Jacob, Q Romans 11:26 says the Master. Isaiah 59:2021As for me this is my contract with you, says the Master, P Romans 11:27 My spirit that is on you and my words which I have put in your mouth will not depart 1|3 out of your mouth, 2|3 nor out of the mouth of your seed, 3|3 nor out of the mouth of your seed's seed, says the Master, from now on and forever.
