Isaiah 57 (WEBP)

[1] The righteous perish, and no one lays it to heart. Merciful men are taken away, and no one considers that the righteous is taken away from the evil.
[2] He enters into peace. They rest in their beds, each one who walks in his uprightness.
[3] “But draw near here, you sons of a sorceress, you offspring of adulterers and prostitutes.
[4] Whom do you mock? Against whom do you make a wide mouth and stick out your tongue? Aren’t you children of disobedience and offspring of falsehood,
[5] you who inflame yourselves among the oaks, under every green tree; who kill the children in the valleys, under the clefts of the rocks?
[6] Among the smooth stones of the valley is your portion. They, they are your lot. You have even poured a drink offering to them. You have offered an offering. Shall I be appeased for these things?
[7] On a high and lofty mountain you have set your bed. You also went up there to offer sacrifice.
[8] You have set up your memorial behind the doors and the posts, for you have exposed yourself to someone besides me, and have gone up. You have enlarged your bed and made you a covenant with them. You loved what you saw on their bed.
[9] You went to the king with oil, increased your perfumes, sent your ambassadors far off, and degraded yourself even to Sheol.°
[10] You were wearied with the length of your ways; yet you didn’t say, ‘It is in vain.’ You found a reviving of your strength; therefore you weren’t faint.
[11] “Whom have you dreaded and feared, so that you lie, and have not remembered me, nor laid it to your heart? Haven’t I held my peace for a long time, and you don’t fear me?
[12] I will declare your righteousness; and as for your works, they will not benefit you.
[13] When you cry, let those whom you have gathered deliver you, but the wind will take them. A breath will carry them all away, but he who takes refuge in me will possess the land, and will inherit my holy mountain.”
[14] He will say, “Build up, build up, prepare the way! Remove the stumbling-block out of the way of my people.”
[15] For the high and lofty One who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy, says: “I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also who is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite.
[16] For I will not contend forever, neither will I always be angry; for the spirit would faint before me, and the souls whom I have made.
[17] I was angry because of the iniquity of his covetousness and struck him. I hid myself and was angry; and he went on backsliding in the way of his heart.
[18] I have seen his ways, and will heal him. I will lead him also, and restore comforts to him and to his mourners.
[19] I create the fruit of the lips: Peace, peace, to him who is far off and to him who is near,” says Yahweh; “and I will heal them.”
[20] But the wicked are like the troubled sea; for it can’t rest and its waters cast up mire and mud.
[21] “There is no peace”, says my God, “for the wicked.”

Isaiah 57 (KJVS)

[1] The righteous H6662 perisheth H6 (8804), and no man H376 layeth H7760 (8802) [it] to heart H3820: and merciful H2617 men H582 [are] taken away H622 (8737), none considering H995 (8688) that the righteous H6662 is taken away H622 (8738) from H6440 the evil H7451 [to come].
[2] He shall enter H935 (8799) into peace H7965: they shall rest H5117 (8799) in their beds H4904, [each one] walking H1980 (8802) [in] his uprightness H5228.
[3] But draw near H7126 (8798) hither, ye sons H1121 of the sorceress H6049 (8781), the seed H2233 of the adulterer H5003 (8764) and the whore H2181 (8799).
[4] Against whom do ye sport H6026 (8691) yourselves? against whom make ye a wide H7337 (8686) mouth H6310, [and] draw out H748 (8686) the tongue H3956? [are] ye not children H3206 of transgression H6588, a seed H2233 of falsehood H8267,
[5] Enflaming H2552 (8737) yourselves with idols H410 under every green H7488 tree H6086, slaying H7819 (8802) the children H3206 in the valleys H5158 under the clifts H5585 of the rocks H5553?
[6] Among the smooth H2511 [stones] of the stream H5158 [is] thy portion H2506; they, they [are] thy lot H1486: even to them hast thou poured H8210 (8804) a drink offering H5262, thou hast offered H5927 (8689) a meat offering H4503. Should I receive comfort H5162 (8735) in these?
[7] Upon a lofty H1364 and high H5375 (8737) mountain H2022 hast thou set H7760 (8804) thy bed H4904: even thither wentest thou up H5927 (8804) to offer H2076 (8800) sacrifice H2077.
[8] Behind H310 the doors H1817 also and the posts H4201 hast thou set up H7760 (8804) thy remembrance H2146: for thou hast discovered H1540 (8765) [thyself to another] than me, and art gone up H5927 (8799); thou hast enlarged H7337 (8689) thy bed H4904, and made H3772 (8799) thee [a covenant] with them; thou lovedst H157 (8804) their bed H4904 where H3027 thou sawest H2372 (8804) [it].
[9] And thou wentest H7788 (8799) to the king H4428 with ointment H8081, and didst increase H7235 (8686) thy perfumes H7547, and didst send H7971 (8762) thy messengers H6735 far off H7350, and didst debase H8213 (8686) [thyself even] unto hell H7585.
[10] Thou art wearied H3021 (8804) in the greatness H7230 of thy way H1870; [yet] saidst H559 (8804) thou not, There is no hope H2976 (8737): thou hast found H4672 (8804) the life H2416 of thine hand H3027; therefore thou wast not grieved H2470 (8804).
[11] And of whom hast thou been afraid H1672 (8804) or feared H3372 (8799), that thou hast lied H3576 (8762), and hast not remembered H2142 (8804) me, nor laid H7760 (8804) [it] to thy heart H3820? have not I held my peace H2814 (8688) even of old H5769, and thou fearest H3372 (8799) me not?
[12] I will declare H5046 (8686) thy righteousness H6666, and thy works H4639; for they shall not profit H3276 (8686) thee.
[13] When thou criest H2199 (8800), let thy companies H6899 deliver H5337 (8686) thee; but the wind H7307 shall carry them all away H5375 (8799); vanity H1892 shall take H3947 (8799) [them]: but he that putteth his trust H2620 (8802) in me shall possess H5157 (8799) the land H776, and shall inherit H3423 (8799) my holy H6944 mountain H2022;
[14] And shall say H559 (8804), Cast ye up H5549 (8798), cast ye up H5549 (8798), prepare H6437 (8761) the way H1870, take up H7311 (8685) the stumblingblock H4383 out of the way H1870 of my people H5971.
[15] For thus saith H559 (8804) the high H7311 (8802) and lofty One H5375 (8737) that inhabiteth H7931 (8802) eternity H5703, whose name H8034 [is] Holy H6918; I dwell H7931 (8799) in the high H4791 and holy H6918 [place], with him also [that is] of a contrite H1793 and humble H8217 spirit H7307, to revive H2421 (8687) the spirit H7307 of the humble H8217, and to revive H2421 (8687) the heart H3820 of the contrite ones H1792 (8737).
[16] For I will not contend H7378 (8799) for ever H5769, neither will I be always H5331 wroth H7107 (8799): for the spirit H7307 should fail H5848 (8799) before H6440 me, and the souls H5397 [which] I have made H6213 (8804).
[17] For the iniquity H5771 of his covetousness H1215 was I wroth H7107 (8804), and smote H5221 (8686) him: I hid H5641 (8687) me, and was wroth H7107 (8799), and he went on H3212 (8799) frowardly H7726 in the way H1870 of his heart H3820.
[18] I have seen H7200 (8804) his ways H1870, and will heal H7495 (8799) him: I will lead H5148 (8686) him also, and restore H7999 (8762) comforts H5150 unto him and to his mourners H57.
[19] I create H1254 (8802) the fruit H5108 of the lips H8193; Peace H7965, peace H7965 to [him that is] far off H7350, and to [him that is] near H7138, saith H559 (8804) the LORD H3068; and I will heal H7495 (8804) him.
[20] But the wicked H7563 [are] like the troubled H1644 (8737) sea H3220, when it cannot H3201 (8799) rest H8252 (8687), whose waters H4325 cast up H1644 (8799) mire H7516 and dirt H2916.
[21] [There is] no peace H7965, saith H559 (8804) my God H430, to the wicked H7563.

Young’s Literal Translation

Isaiah 57 (YLT)

[1] The righteous hath perished, And there is none laying it to heart, And men of kindness are gathered, Without any considering that from the face of evil Gathered is the righteous one.
[2] He entereth into peace, they rest on their beds, Each is going straightforward.
[3] And ye, come near hither, O sons of a sorceress, seed of an adulterer, Even thou dost commit whoredom.
[4] Against whom do ye sport yourselves? Against whom enlarge ye the mouth? Prolong ye the tongue? Are not ye children of transgression? a false seed?
[5] Who are inflamed among oaks, under every green tree, Slaughtering the children in valleys, Under clefts of the rocks.
[6] Among the smooth things of a brook is thy portion, They-they are thy lot, Also to them thou hast poured out an oblation, Thou hast caused a present to ascend, For these things am I comforted?
[7] On a mountain, high and exalted, Thou hast set thy couch, Also thither thou hast gone up to make a sacrifice.
[8] And behind the door, and the post, Thou hast set up thy memorial, For from Me thou hast removed, and goest up, Thou hast enlarged thy couch, And dost covenant for thyself among them, Thou hast loved their couch, the station thou sawest,
[9] And goest joyfully to the king in ointment, And dost multiply thy perfumes, And sendest thine ambassadors afar off, And humblest thyself unto Sheol.
[10] In the greatness of thy way thou hast laboured, Thou hast not said, ‘It is desperate.’ The life of thy hand thou hast found, Therefore thou hast not been sick.
[11] And of whom hast thou been afraid, and fearest, That thou liest, and Me hast not remembered? Thou hast not laid it to thy heart, Am not I silent, even from of old? And Me thou fearest not?
[12] I declare thy righteousness, and thy works, And they do not profit thee.
[13] When thou criest, let thy gatherings deliver thee, And all of them carry away doth wind, Take away doth vanity, And whoso is trusting in Me inheriteth the land, And doth possess My holy mountain.
[14] And he hath said, ‘Raise up, raise up, prepare a way, Lift a stumbling-block out of the way of My people.’
[15] For thus said the high and exalted One, Inhabiting eternity, and holy is His name: ‘In the high and holy place I dwell, And with the bruised and humble of spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble, And to revive the heart of bruised ones,’
[16] For, not to the age do I strive, nor for ever am I wroth, For the spirit from before Me is feeble, And the souls I have made.
[17] For the iniquity of his dishonest gain, I have been wroth, and I smite him, Hiding-and am wroth, And he goeth on turning back in the way of his heart.
[18] His ways I have seen, and I heal him, yea, I lead him, And recompense comforts to him and to his mourning ones.
[19] Producing the fruit of the lips, ‘Peace, peace,’ to the far off, and to the near, And I have healed him, said Jehovah.
[20] And the wicked are as the driven out sea, For to rest it is not able, And its waters cast out filth and mire.
[21] There is no peace, said my God, to the wicked!
