Neither justice overtake us: we wait for light but behold obscurity for brightness but we walk in darkness

We look for the wall like the blind and we grope as if we had no eyes we Stumble at noon day as in the night we are in desolate places as dead men.

We roar all like bears and mourn sore like doves you look for judgment but there is none for salvation it is far from us.

For our transgressions are multiplied before thee and our sins testify against us
For our transgressions are with us and as for our iniquities, we know them
In transgressing and lying against the Lord and departing away from our God speaking oppression and revolt. Conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.

And judgment is turned away backward and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street. And equity cannot enter.
