Isaiah 57:1-6 (Lexham English Bible)

View In My Bible

Idolatry is Adultery

1 The righteous [one] perishes, and there is no one who takesa [it] to heart. And men of faithfulness [are] gathered, while there is no one who understands, for the righteous is gathered from the presence of wickedness. 2 he enters [into] peace; they will rest on their beds, walking straight ahead of him. 3 "Butb you, come near here, you children of a soothsayer, offspring [of] an adulterer and she [who] commits fornication. 4 At whom do you make fun? At whom do you {open}c [your] mouth [and] {stick out}d [your] tongue? [Are] you not children of transgression, offspring of deception, 5 who burn with lust among the oaks, under every leafy tree, who slaughter children in the valleys, under the clefts of the rocks? 6 Your portion [is] among [the] smooth [stones] of [the] valley; they, they [are] your lot; indeed, to them you have poured out a drink offering, you have brought a food offering. Shall I relent concerning these [things]?
