Read Isaiah 38:18 Using Other Translations
For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth.
For Sheol does not thank you; death does not praise you; those who go down to the pit do not hope for your faithfulness.
For the dead cannot praise you; they cannot raise their voices in praise. Those who go down to the grave can no longer hope in your faithfulness.
