Now go, write it down on a tablet in their presence,
inscribe it on a scroll, so that it might be preserved
for a future time as an enduring witness.
For these are rebellious people – they are lying children,
children unwilling to obey the LORD’s law.
They say to the visionaries,
“See no more visions!”
and to the seers,
“Don’t relate messages to us about what is right!
Tell us nice things; relate deceptive messages.
Turn aside from the way; stray off the path.
Remove from our presence the Holy One of Israel.”

For this reason this is what the Holy One of Israel says:
“You have rejected this message;
you trust instead in your ability to oppress and trick,
and rely on that kind of behaviour.
So this sin will become your downfall.
You will be like a high wall that bulges and cracks and is ready to collapse;
it crumbles suddenly, in a flash.
It shatters in pieces like a clay jar, so shattered to bits that none of it can be salvaged. Among its fragments one cannot find a shard large enough to scoop a hot coal from a fire or to skim off water from a cistern.”

For this is what the Sovereign LORD, the Holy One of Israel says:
“If you repented and patiently waited for me, you would be delivered;
if you calmly trusted in me you would find strength,
but you are unwilling.
You say, ‘No, we will flee on horses,’ so you will indeed flee.
You say, ‘We will ride on fast horses,’ so your pursuers will be fast.
One thousand will scurry at the battle cry of one enemy soldier; at the battle cry of five enemy soldiers you will all run away, until the remaining few are as isolated as a flagpole on a mountaintop or a signal flag on a hill.”
Isaiah 30: 8 – 17 (New English Translation)


And so:

Justice is turned back, And righteousness stands afar off; For truth is fallen in the street, And equity (righteousness ) cannot enter.
So truth fails, And he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. Then the LORD saw it, and it displeased Him That there was no justice.
Isaiah 59:14 – 15 (New King James Version)
