List of Wrongdoing

Isaiah 59:3-4.

For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness.

None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.

Image result for Isaiah 59:3-4

In the next several verses, God gets specific about the sins of which Israel is guilty. We don’t have any business looking down our noses at them; we are no better today, so pay attention to see what divides mankind from God.

Your hands are defiled with blood

Your fingers are defiled with iniquity

Your lips have spoken lies

Your tongue has muttered perverseness
(Contrary to what is right or good; wicked or depraved: a perverse world of sinners. 2. a. Characterized by or resulting from willful opposition or resistance to what is right, expected, or reasonable)

No one calls for justice

No one pleads for truth

They trust in vanity (emptiness)

They speak lies

They conceive mischief

The bring forth iniquity

I don’t think these verses are hard to understand. They don’t require much commentary. They would certainly be good for us, truth over which to meditate. As I said, we are no different. We are no better. As a nation, our hands are defiled with the blood of innocent babies that we have legislated to their deaths. We lie when we claim that a fetus is nothing more than a mass of tissue. The newest lie created to excuse abortion is that it’s not really a baby until the mother decides to take it home.

We stand accused, just as Israel did.
