Isaiah 38:18

NET ©

Indeed Sheol does not give you thanks; death does not praise you. Those who descend into the pit do not anticipate your faithfulness.

NIV ©

For the grave cannot praise you, death cannot sing your praise; those who go down to the pit cannot hope for your faithfulness.

NASB ©

"For Sheol cannot thank You, Death cannot praise You; Those who go down to the pit cannot hope for Your faithfulness.

NLT ©

For the dead cannot praise you; they cannot raise their voices in praise. Those who go down to destruction can no longer hope in your faithfulness.

MSG ©

The dead don't thank you, and choirs don't sing praises from the morgue. Those buried six feet under don't witness to your faithful ways.

BBE ©

For the underworld is not able to give you praise, death gives you no honour: for those who go down into the underworld there is no hope in your mercy.

NRSV ©

For Sheol cannot thank you, death cannot praise you; those who go down to the Pit cannot hope for your faithfulness.

NKJV ©

For Sheol cannot thank You, Death cannot praise You; Those who go down to the pit cannot hope for Your truth.
