57:1 The righteous [H6662] perisheth [H6] , and no man [H376] layeth [H7760] [it] to heart [H3820] : and merciful [H2617] men [H582] [are] taken away [H622] , none considering [H995] that the righteous [H6662] is taken away [H622] from [H6440] the evil [H7451] [to come].(merciful: Heb. men of kindness, or, godliness)(from: or, from that which is evil)
57:2 He shall enter [H935] into peace [H7965] : they shall rest [H5117] in their beds [H4904] , [each one] walking [H1980] [in] his uprightness [H5228] .(enter into: or, go in)(in his: or, before him)
57:3 But draw near [H7126] hither, ye sons [H1121] of the sorceress [H6049] , the seed [H2233] of the adulterer [H5003] and the whore [H2181] .
57:4 Against whom do ye sport [H6026] yourselves? against whom make ye a wide [H7337] mouth [H6310] , [and] draw out [H748] the tongue [H3956] ? [are] ye not children [H3206] of transgression [H6588] , a seed [H2233] of falsehood [H8267] ,
57:5 Enflaming [H2552] yourselves with idols [H410] under every green [H7488] tree [H6086] , slaying [H7819] the children [H3206] in the valleys [H5158] under the clifts [H5585] of the rocks [H5553] ?(with: or, among the oaks)
57:6 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] a drink offering [H5262] , thou hast offered [H5927] a meat offering [H4503] . Should I receive comfort [H5162] in these?
57:7 Upon a lofty [H1364] and high [H5375] mountain [H2022] hast thou set [H7760] thy bed [H4904] : even thither wentest thou up [H5927] to offer [H2076] sacrifice [H2077] .
57:8 Behind [H310] the doors [H1817] also and the posts [H4201] hast thou set up [H7760] thy remembrance [H2146] : for thou hast discovered [H1540] [thyself to another] than me, and art gone up [H5927] ; thou hast enlarged [H7337] thy bed [H4904] , and made [H3772] thee [a covenant] with them; thou lovedst [H157] their bed [H4904] where [H3027] thou sawest [H2372] [it].(made: or, hewed it for thyself larger than theirs)(where: or, thou providedst room)
57:9 And thou wentest [H7788] to the king [H4428] with ointment [H8081] , and didst increase [H7235] thy perfumes [H7547] , and didst send [H7971] thy messengers [H6735] far off [H7350] , and didst debase [H8213] [thyself even] unto hell [H7585] .(thou: or, thou respectedst)
57:10 Thou art wearied [H3021] in the greatness [H7230] of thy way [H1870] ; [yet] saidst [H559] thou not, There is no hope [H2976] : thou hast found [H4672] the life [H2416] of thine hand [H3027] ; therefore thou wast not grieved [H2470] .(life: or, living)
57:11 And of whom hast thou been afraid [H1672] or feared [H3372] , that thou hast lied [H3576] , and hast not remembered [H2142] me, nor laid [H7760] [it] to thy heart [H3820] ? have not I held my peace [H2814] even of old [H5769] , and thou fearest [H3372] me not?
57:12 I will declare [H5046] thy righteousness [H6666] , and thy works [H4639] ; for they shall not profit [H3276] thee.
57:13 When thou criest [H2199] , let thy companies [H6899] deliver [H5337] thee; but the wind [H7307] shall carry them all away [H5375] ; vanity [H1892] shall take [H3947] [them]: but he that putteth his trust [H2620] in me shall possess [H5157] the land [H776] , and shall inherit [H3423] my holy [H6944] mountain [H2022] ;
57:14 And shall say [H559] , Cast ye up [H5549] , cast ye up [H5549] , prepare [H6437] the way [H1870] , take up [H7311] the stumblingblock [H4383] out of the way [H1870] of my people [H5971] .
57:15 For thus saith [H559] the high [H7311] and lofty One [H5375] that inhabiteth [H7931] eternity [H5703] , whose name [H8034] [is] Holy [H6918] ; I dwell [H7931] 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] the spirit [H7307] of the humble [H8217] , and to revive [H2421] the heart [H3820] of the contrite ones [H1792] .
57:16 For I will not contend [H7378] for ever [H5769] , neither will I be always [H5331] wroth [H7107] : for the spirit [H7307] should fail [H5848] before [H6440] me, and the souls [H5397] [which] I have made [H6213] .
57:17 For the iniquity [H5771] of his covetousness [H1215] was I wroth [H7107] , and smote [H5221] him: I hid [H5641] me, and was wroth [H7107] , and he went on [H3212] frowardly [H7726] in the way [H1870] of his heart [H3820] .(frowardly: Heb. turning away)
57:18 I have seen [H7200] his ways [H1870] , and will heal [H7495] him: I will lead [H5148] him also, and restore [H7999] comforts [H5150] unto him and to his mourners [H57] .
57:19 I create [H1254] 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] the LORD [H3068] ; and I will heal [H7495] him.
57:20 But the wicked [H7563] [are] like the troubled [H1644] sea [H3220] , when it cannot [H3201] rest [H8252] , whose waters [H4325] cast up [H1644] mire [H7516] and dirt [H2916] .
57:21 [There is] no peace [H7965] , saith [H559] my God [H430] , to the wicked [H7563] .
