None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity. -Isaiah 59:4
WHY do you boast of evil, O mighty man? Your tongue
devises injustices against the innocent every day. 2 It is like a
sharp razor, working deceitfully. 3 You love evil more than good, and
lying rather than speaking righteousness. 4 You love all that speak
evil and all deceitful tongues; 5 Therefore, God shall overthrow you,
and he shall root you out of your dwelling place, and out of the land
of the living."
"6 ¶ Then shall the righteous see and rejoice, and shall trust in the
LORD; 7 And they shall say, Lo, this is the man who trusted not in
God; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and boasted in his
possessions. 8 But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God; I
have trusted in the mercy of God for ever and ever. 9 I will praise
thee for ever, because thou hast done it; and I will proclaim thy name
before thy saints for generations."
