Column XLVII Isaiah 57 vs.2 to 58 vs.6

1. (Continue Chapter 57 vs.2) walking in their uprightness. (PP)

2. (3.) But draw near here, you sons of the sorceress, the seed of the adulterer and the one whoring. (4.) Against whom do you go softly? against whom do you make a wide
3. mouth, and lengthen the tongue? are you not children {&waw&} of transgression, a seed of falsehood, (5.) Heating yourselves with idols under every
4. green tree, slaughtering the children in the streams, under the [sp. cliffs] of the rocks (6.) In those portions of the river they are your portion [+there,+]
5. they are your lot: even to them you poured a drink offering, you have offered a burnt offering on an altar. Am I comforted in these? (7.) Upon a mountain
6. high and and lifted up you set your bed: even there you went up to sacrifice sacrifices. (8.) Behind the doors and the door posts
7. you set up your memorial: for you revealed yourself to another than me, and are gone up; you have enlarged your bed, and you made a covenant [+for yourself from them+] {m..with them;]
8. loving their bed by means of a vision. (9.) and you went to the king with oil, and increased your perfumes, and you sent your envoys
9. far off, and you lowered yourself as far as Sheol. (10.) in the greatness of your way you are wearied; But you did not say so, having no hope in the life you found by your own hand; [*]
10. therefore you were not weakened. (11.) And who worries you and you fear me because you have lied, and have not remembered me, nor set
11. these things to your heart? have I not been mute for ages, and you fear me not? (12.) I will tell your righteousness,
12. and your works; for your {+group+} they shall not profit you. (13.). When you cry, let your group deliver you; but the wind shall carry all of them {M ends vs 12 here]
13. and they shall be taken as a vapor. (13.). but he who puts his trust in me shall inherit the land, and shall possess my holy mountain; (PP)

14. (14.) And he shall say, Cast up, cast up, [+the thing cast up+] prepare the way, raise up the stumblingblock from the way of my people. (15.) because thus
15. says the Father of exaltation and the lifted up One who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy; He inhabits the high and holy place, with the contrite and lowly
16. spirit, to make alive the spirit of the lowly, and to make alive the heart of the contrite. (16) For I will not strive for ever, nor will I everlastingly be angry because
17. the spirit will faint before me, and the lives [neshemah] I made. (17.) Because of the evil of his covetousness I was wrathful and I struck him and I hid myself, and was angry,
18. and he went on stubbornly in the way of his heart. (18.) I have seen his ways, but will heal him: and make peace and comforts to him and to his mourners.
19. (19.) I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, to him who is far off, and to him who is near, says YHWH; and I will heal him. (20.) But the wicked are as the sea,
20. driven because it is not able to be quiet, and they drive out from its waters mire and clay. (21.) There is no peace, says
21. my God, to the wicked. (PP)

22. (Chapter 58 vs.1) Call with your throat, do not hold back, lift up your voice like a trumpet, and tell my people their transgression, and to the house of Jacob
23. their sins. (2.) They seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation who was doing righteousness,
24. and judgement they did not abandon their God they ask of me my righteous judgements they desire nearness to God. (3.). Why have we fasted,
25. and you do not see we afflicted our soul, and you did not know it. Behold, in the day of your fast you find pleasure, and all your labors.
26. you press on. (4.) Behold, you fast for strife and contention, and to strike with the fist of wickedness: you shall not fast as you do this day to have heard on high
27. your voice. (5.) Is it like this the fast that I have chosen. a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush,
28. and to spread sackcloth and dust? will you call this a fast, and an acceptable day to YHWH? (6.) Is not this the fast which
29. I have chosen? to open the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy yokes, and to set the oppressed free, {&yod&} and every

Isaiah 57:2 to 58:6 King James Version

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

3 But draw near hither, ye sons of the sorceress, the seed of the adulterer and the whore.

4 Against whom do ye sport yourselves? against whom make ye a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? are ye not children of transgression, a seed of falsehood.

5 Enflaming yourselves with idols under every green tree, slaying the children in the valleys under the clifts of the rocks?

6 Among the smooth stones of the stream is thy portion; they, they are thy lot: even to them hast thou poured a drink offering, thou hast offered a meat offering. Should I receive comfort in these?

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

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.

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.

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.

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?

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

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;

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

58:1 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.

2 Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God.

3 Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou seest not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all your labours.

4 Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as ye do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high.

5 Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the Lord?

6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
