~ Evil Leaders Rebuked.
~ The Righteous Perish, ... to be Spared from Evil.

Isa 57:1  The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come.

Isa 57:2  He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness.

~ But ye sons of a Sorceress: [the idols] among the smooth Stones of the stream is thy portion; they are thy lot [in life].

Isa 57:3  But [you] draw near hither [come here], ye sons of the sorceress, the seed [offspring] of the adulterer and the whore.

Isa 57:4  Against whom do ye sport yourselves? [whom are you mocking?]  against whom make ye a wide mouth [sneer], and draw [stick] out the [your] tongue?  are ye not children of transgression [rebels], a seed [the offspring] of falsehood [liars?].

Isa 57:5  Enflaming [You burn] yourselves with idols under every green [spreading] tree, slaying [sacrificing] the [your] children in the valleys [ravines] under the clifts of the rocks [overhanging crags]?

Isa 57:6  [ The idols] Among the smooth stones of the stream is thy portion; they, they are thy lot: even [yes] to them hast thou poured [out] a drink offering, thou hast offered a meat offering.  [In the light of these things] Should I [God] receive comfort [relent] in these?

~ Thy works shall not profit thee

Isa 57:7  Upon a lofty and high mountain hast thou set thy bed: even thither wentest thou up to offer sacrifice.

Isa 57:8  Behind the doors also and the posts hast thou set up thy remembrance: for thou hast discovered thyself to another than me, and art gone up; thou hast enlarged thy bed, and made thee a covenant with them; thou lovedst their bed where thou sawest it.

Isa 57:9  And thou wentest to the king with ointment, and didst increase thy perfumes, and didst send thy messengers far off, and didst debase thyself even unto hell.

Isa 57:10  Thou art wearied in the greatness of thy way; yet saidst thou not, There is no hope: thou hast found the life of thine hand; therefore thou wast not grieved.

Isa 57:11  And of whom hast thou been afraid or feared, that thou hast lied, and hast not remembered me, nor laid it to thy heart?  have not I held my peace even of old, and thou fearest me not?

Isa 57:12  I will declare thy righteousness, and thy works; for they shall not profit thee.

Isa 57:13  When thou criest, let thy companies deliver thee; but the wind shall carry them all away; vanity shall take them: but he that putteth his trust in me shall possess the land, and shall inherit my holy mountain;

~ Comfort for the Contrite

Isa 57:14  And shall say, Cast ye up, cast ye up, prepare the way, take up the stumblingblock out of the way of my people.

Isa 57:15  For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.

Isa 57:16  For I will not contend for ever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made.

Isa 57:17  For the iniquity of his covetousness was I wroth, and smote him: I hid me, and was wroth, and he went on frowardly in the way of his heart.

Isa 57:18  I have seen his ways, and will heal him: I will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners.

Isa 57:19  I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the LORD; and I will heal him.

Isa 57:20  But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt.

Isa 57:21  There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.
