1 H6662 The righteous H6 perisheth, H376 and no man H7760 layeth H3820 it to heart; H2617 and merciful H582 men H622 are taken away, H995 none considering H6662 that the righteous H622 is taken away H6440 from H7451 the evil to come.
2 H935 He entereth H7965 into peace; H5117 they rest H4904 in their beds, H1980 each one that walketh H5228 in his uprightness.
3 H7126 But draw near H1121 hither, ye sons H6049 of the sorceress, H2233 the seed H5003 of the adulterer H2181 and the harlot.
4 H6026 Against whom do ye sport H7337 yourselves? against whom make ye a wide H6310 mouth, H748 and put out H3956 the tongue? H3206 are ye not children H6588 of transgression, H2233 a seed H8267 of falsehood,
5 H2552 ye that inflame H410 yourselves among the oaks, H7488 under every green H6086 tree; H7819 that slay H3206 the children H5158 in the valleys, H5585 under the clefts H5553 of the rocks?
6 H2511 Among the smooth H5158 stones of the valley H2506 is thy portion; H1486 they, they are thy lot; H8210 even to them hast thou poured H4503 a drink-offering, H5927 thou hast offered H5262 an oblation. H5162 Shall I be appeased for these things?
7 H5375 Upon a high H1364 and lofty H2022 mountain H7760 hast thou set H4904 thy bed; H5927 thither also wentest thou up H2076 to offer H2077 sacrifice.
8 H310 And behind H1817 the doors H4201 and the posts H7760 hast thou set up H2146 thy memorial: H1540 for thou hast uncovered H5927 thyself to another than me, and art gone up; H7337 thou hast enlarged H4904 thy bed, H3772 and made H157 thee a covenant with them: thou lovedst H4904 their bed H3027 where H2372 thou sawest it.
9 H7788 And thou wentest H4428 to the king H8081 with oil, H7235 and didst increase H7547 thy perfumes, H7971 and didst send H6735 thine ambassadors H7350 far off, H8213 and didst debase H7585 thyself even unto Sheol.
10 H3021 Thou wast wearied H7230 with the length H1870 of thy way; H559 yet saidst H2976 thou not, It is in vain: H4672 thou didst find H2416 a quickening H3027 of thy strength; H2470 therefore thou wast not faint.
11 H1672 And of whom hast thou been afraid H3372 and in fear, H3576 that thou liest, H2142 and hast not remembered H7760 me, nor laid H3820 it to thy heart? H2814 have not I held my peace H5769 even of long time, H3372 and thou fearest me not?
12 H5046 I will declare H6666 thy righteousness; H4639 and as for thy works, H3276 they shall not profit thee.
13 H2199 When thou criest, H5337 let them that thou hast gathered deliver H7307 thee; but the wind H3947 shall take H1892 them, a breath H3947 shall carry H5375 them all away: H2620 but he that taketh refuge H5157 in me shall possess H776 the land, H3423 and shall inherit H6944 my holy H2022 mountain.
14 H559 And he will say, H5549 Cast ye up, H5549 cast ye up, H6437 prepare H1870 the way, H7311 take up H4383 the stumbling-block H1870 out of the way H5971 of my people.
15 H559 For thus saith H7311 the high H5375 and lofty One H7931 that inhabiteth H5703 eternity, H8034 whose name H6918 is Holy: H7931 I dwell H4791 in the high H6918 and holy H1793 place, with him also that is of a contrite H8217 and humble H7307 spirit, H2421 to revive H7307 the spirit H8217 of the humble, H2421 and to revive H3820 the heart H1792 of the contrite.
16 H7378 For I will not contend H5769 for ever, H5331 neither will I be always H7107 wroth; H7307 for the spirit H5848 would faint H6440 before H5397 me, and the souls H6213 that I have made.
17 H5771 For the iniquity H1215 of his covetousness H7107 was I wroth, H5221 and smote H5641 him; I hid H7107 my face and was wroth; H3212 and he went on H7726 backsliding H1870 in the way H3820 of his heart.
18 H7200 I have seen H1870 his ways, H7495 and will heal H5148 him: I will lead H7999 him also, and restore H5150 comforts H57 unto him and to his mourners.
19 H1254 I create H5108 the fruit H8193 of the lips: H7965 Peace, H7965 peace, H7350 to him that is far off H7138 and to him that is near, H559 saith H3068 Jehovah; H7495 and I will heal him.
20 H7563 But the wicked H1644 are like the troubled H3220 sea; H3201 for it cannot H8252 rest, H4325 and its waters H1644 cast up H7516 mire H2916 and dirt.
