Isaiah 59:13-15 New Century Version (NCV)

13 sinning and rejecting the Lord,
    turning away from our God,
planning to hurt others and to disobey God,
    planning and speaking lies.
14 So we have driven away justice,
    and we have kept away from what is right.
Truth is not spoken in the streets;
    what is honest is not allowed to enter the city.
15 Truth cannot be found anywhere,
    and people who refuse to do evil are attacked.

The Lord looked and could not find any justice,
    and he was displeased.

Isaiah 59:13-15 New International Version (NIV)

13 rebellion and treachery against the Lord,
    turning our backs on our God,
inciting revolt and oppression,
    uttering lies our hearts have conceived.
14 So justice is driven back,
    and righteousness stands at a distance;
truth has stumbled in the streets,
    honesty cannot enter.
15 Truth is nowhere to be found,
    and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey.

The Lord looked and was displeased
    that there was no justice.
