023:057:001
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.


023:057:002
He shall enter into peace:
they shall rest in their beds,
each one walking in his uprightness.


023:057:003
But draw near hither,
ye sons of the sorceress,
the seed of the adulterer and the whore.


023:057:004
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.


023:057:005
Enflaming yourselves with idols under every green tree,
slaying the children in the valleys under the clifts of the rocks?


023:057:006
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?


023:057:007
Upon a lofty and high mountain hast thou set thy bed:
even thither wentest thou up to offer sacrifice.


023:057:008
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.


023:057:009
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.


023:057:010
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.


023:057:011
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?


023:057:012
I will declare thy righteousness,
and thy works;
for they shall not profit thee.


023:057:013
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;


023:057:014
And shall say,
Cast ye up,
cast ye up,
prepare the way,
take up the stumblingblock out of the way of my people.


023:057:015
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.


023:057:016
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.


023:057:017
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.


023:057:018
I have seen his ways,
and will heal him:
I will lead him also,
and restore comforts unto him and to his mourners.


023:057:019
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.


023:057:020
But the wicked are like the troubled sea,
when it cannot rest,
whose waters cast up mire and dirt.


023:057:021
There is no peace,
saith my God,
to the wicked.
