Isaiah 59:4
Parallel Verses
New Living Translation
No one cares about being fair and honest. The people's lawsuits are based on lies. They conceive evil deeds and then give birth to sin.

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

Darby Bible Translation
none calleth for justice, none pleadeth in truthfulness. They trust in vanity, and speak falsehood; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.

World English Bible
None sues in righteousness, and none pleads in truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.

Young's Literal Translation
There is none calling in righteousness, And there is none pleading in faithfulness, Trusting on emptiness, and speaking falsehood, Conceiving perverseness, and bearing iniquity.

Commentary
