The Reason for the Lack of Justice

Does justice fail in a nation? Isaiah 59 explains why. In verses 9-15a, the prophet declared,
Therefore justice is far from us…
We look for justice, but there is none…
For our transgressions are multiplied before You…
In transgressing and lying against the LORD,
And departing from our God…
Justice is turned back,
And righteousness stands afar off;
For truth is fallen in the street,
And equity cannot enter…
And he who departs from evil makes himself a prey.
(Isaiah 59:9-15a)
Starting with the rest of verse 15, the prophet said that such a situation does not please the Lord, for He loves justice. If justice, therefore, fails in your land, look to see what kind of people dwell in the land and you will find your answer.
