Isaiah 57:16-18


57:16 For I will not be hostile 1  forever

or perpetually angry,

for then man’s spirit would grow faint before me, 2 

the life-giving breath I created.

57:17 I was angry because of their sinful greed;

I attacked them and angrily rejected them, 3 

yet they remained disobedient and stubborn. 4 

57:18 I have seen their behavior, 5 

but I will heal them and give them rest,

and I will once again console those who mourn. 6 

1 tn Or perhaps, “argue,” or “accuse” (so NAB, NIV, NRSV).

2 tn Heb “for a spirit from before me would be faint.”

3 tn Heb “and I struck him, hiding, and I was angry.” פָּנַיִם (panayim, “face”) is the implied object of “hiding.”

4 tn Heb “and he walked [as an] apostate in the way of his heart.”

5 tn Heb “his ways” (so KJV, NASB, NIV); TEV “how they acted.”

6 tn Heb “and I will restore consolation to him, to his mourners.”
