Woe to the sinful nation,

a people whose guilt is great,

a brood of evildoers,

children given to corruption!

and turned their backs on him.

Why do you persist in rebellion?

Your whole head is injured,

your whole heart afflicted.

They are gone away backward.

Why should ye be stricken any more?

Ye will revolt more and more:

The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint.

Why do you continue to invite punishment?

Must you rebel forever?

Your head is injured,

and your heart is sick.

You will revolt more and more.

The whole head is sick,

And the whole heart faints.

Isaiah 1:4–5 — New Century Version (NCV)

How terrible! Israel is a nation of sin,

a people loaded down with guilt,

a group of children doing evil,

they hate God, the Holy One of Israel,

and have turned away from him as if he were a stranger.

Why should you continue to be punished?

Why do you continue to turn against him?

Your whole head is hurt,

and your whole heart is sick.

Your head is covered with wounds.

Your whole heart is weak.

They have turned away from Him.

Where will you be stricken again,

As you continue in your rebellion?

The whole head is sick

And the whole heart is faint.
