Isaiah 50:2; Isaiah 59:1

kWhy, when I came, was there no man;

why, when I called, was there no one to answer?

lIs my hand shortened, that it cannot redeem?

Or have I no power to deliver?

mBehold, by my rebuke nI dry up the sea,

oI make the rivers a desert;

ptheir fish stink for lack of water

and die of thirst.

Evil and Oppression

59  Behold, bthe Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save,

or his ear dull, that it cannot hear;
