Isaiah 59 verse 15 speaks of a period of time when truth was entirely absent from the land and those who kept themselves away from evil deeds were targeted for harassment. The scripture goes like this;

Truth is nowhere to be found, and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey.

The Lord looked and was displeased that there was no justice.

In this society, every venue of information and every interaction was based on deception. The society that prophet Isaiah was part of had fallen into moral decay so deeply that even an exhaustive search for truth yielded nothing.

Justice, righteousness and honesty were long gone and now truth itself had gone into hiding and the freedom that let people autonomously choose their own path of righteousness, was snuffed out.

When the Lord looked upon this state of affairs, He was displeased because there was no justice. Seeing that there was none to speak out for justice and righteousness, He undertook the role of saviour Himself.

As Isaiah 59 verse 16 says;

He saw that there was no one, he was appalled that there was no one to intervene;

so his own arm achieved salvation for him, and his own righteousness sustained him.

Bless the Lord who saw us in an unsalvageable position with no justice, righteousness, honesty, truth or freedom and undertook to be our salvation Himself.
