Isaiah 57:1-6 (English Standard Version)

Israel's Futile Idolatry

1 The righteous man perishes, and no one lays it to heart; 1devout men are taken away, while no one understands. For the righteous man is taken away from calamity; 2 2he enters into peace; they rest 3in their beds who walk in their uprightness. 3 But you, draw near, sons of the sorceress, 4offspring of the adulterer and the loose woman. 4 Whom are you mocking? Against whom 5do you open your mouth wide and stick out your tongue? Are you not children of 6transgression, 7the offspring of deceit, 5 you who burn with lust among 8the oaks,a under every green tree, 9who slaughter your children in the valleys, under the clefts of the rocks? 6 Among the smooth stones of 10the valley is your portion; they, they, are your lot; to them you have poured out a drink offering, you have brought a grain offering. Shall I relent for these things?
