Isaiah 57:15–19 — The New International Version (NIV)

15 For this is what the high and exalted One says—

he who lives forever, whose name is holy:

“I live in a high and holy place,

but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit,

to revive the spirit of the lowly

and to revive the heart of the contrite.

16 I will not accuse them forever,

nor will I always be angry,

for then they would faint away because of me—

the very people I have created.

17 I was enraged by their sinful greed;

I punished them, and hid my face in anger,

yet they kept on in their willful ways.

18 I have seen their ways, but I will heal them;

I will guide them and restore comfort to Israel’s mourners,

19 creating praise on their lips.

Peace, peace, to those far and near,”

says the Lord. “And I will heal them.”

Isaiah 57:15–19 — King James Version (KJV 1900)

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.

Isaiah 57:15–19 — New Living Translation (NLT)

15 The high and lofty one who lives in eternity,

the Holy One, says this:

“I live in the high and holy place

with those whose spirits are contrite and humble.

I restore the crushed spirit of the humble

and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts.

16 For I will not fight against you forever;

I will not always be angry.

If I were, all people would pass away—

all the souls I have made.

17 I was angry,

so I punished these greedy people.

I withdrew from them,

but they kept going on their own stubborn way.

18 I have seen what they do,

but I will heal them anyway!

I will lead them.

I will comfort those who mourn,

19 bringing words of praise to their lips.

May they have abundant peace, both near and far,”

says the Lord, who heals them.

Isaiah 57:15–19 — The New King James Version (NKJV)

15 For thus says the High and Lofty One

Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy:

“I dwell in the high and holy place,

With him who has 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 forever,

Nor will I always be angry;

For the spirit would fail before Me,

And the souls which I have made.

17 For the iniquity of his covetousness

I was angry and struck him;

I hid and was angry,

And he went on backsliding in the way of his heart.

18 I have seen his ways, and will heal him;

I will also lead him,

And restore comforts to him

And to his mourners.

19 “I create the fruit of the lips:

Peace, peace to him who is far off and to him who is near,”

Says the Lord,

“And I will heal him.”

Isaiah 57:15–19 — New Century Version (NCV)

15 And this is the reason: God lives forever and is holy.

He is high and lifted up.

He says, “I live in a high and holy place,

but I also live with people who are sad and humble.

I give new life to those who are humble

and to those whose hearts are broken.

16 I will not accuse forever,

nor will I always be angry,

because then human life would grow weak.

Human beings, whom I created, would die.

17 I was angry because they were dishonest in order to make money.

I punished them and turned away from them in anger,

but they continued to do evil.

18 I have seen what they have done, but I will heal them.

I will guide them and comfort them and those who felt sad for them.

They will all praise me.

19 I will give peace, real peace, to those far and near,

and I will heal them,” says the Lord.

Isaiah 57:15–19 — GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

15 The High and Lofty One lives forever, and his name is holy.

This is what he says:

I live in a high and holy place.

But I am with those who are crushed and humble.

I will renew the spirit of those who are humble

and the courage of those who are crushed.

16 I will not accuse you forever.

I will not be angry with you forever.

Otherwise, the spirits, the lives of those I’ve made,

would grow faint in my presence.

17 I was angry because of their sinful greed,

so I punished them, hid from them, and remained angry.

But they continued to be sinful.

18 I’ve seen their sinful ways, but I’ll heal them.

I’ll guide them and give them rest.

I’ll comfort them and their mourners.

19 I’ll create praise on their lips:

“Perfect peace to those both far and near.”

“I’ll heal them,” says the Lord.

Isaiah 57:15–19 — The Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

15 For the High and Exalted One

who lives forever, whose name is Holy says this:

“I live in a high and holy place,

and with the oppressed and lowly of spirit,

to revive the spirit of the lowly

and revive the heart of the oppressed.

16 For I will not accuse you forever,

and I will not always be angry;

for then the spirit would grow weak before Me,

even the breath of man, which I have made.

17 Because of his sinful greed I was angry,

so I struck him; I was angry and hid;

but he went on turning back to the desires of his heart.

18 I have seen his ways, but I will heal him;

I will lead him and restore comfort

to him and his mourners,

19 creating words of praise.”

The Lord says,

“Peace, peace to the one who is far or near,

and I will heal him.

who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy:

I dwell in the high and holy place,

and also with those who are contrite and humble in spirit,

to revive the spirit of the humble,

and to revive the heart of the contrite.

16 For I will not continually accuse,

nor will I always be angry;

for then the spirits would grow faint before me,

even the souls that I have made.

17 Because of their wicked covetousness I was angry;

I struck them, I hid and was angry;

but they kept turning back to their own ways.

18 I have seen their ways, but I will heal them;

I will lead them and repay them with comfort,

creating for their mourners the fruit of the lips.

19 Peace, peace, to the far and the near, says the Lord;

and I will heal them.

Isaiah 57:15–19 — The Lexham English Bible (LEB)

15 For thus says the high and lofty one who resides forever, and whose name is holy:

“I reside in a high and holy place,

and with the contrite and humble of spirit,

to revive the spirit of the humble,

and to revive the heart of the contrite.

16 For I will not attack forever,

and I will not be angry forever,

for the spirit will grow faint before me,

and the breaths that I myself I have made.

17 I was angry because of his sin of gain, and I struck him;

I hid and I was angry, but he walked apostate, in the ways of his heart.

18 I have seen his ways, but I will heal him;

and I will lead him and give him and his mourners comfort as a recompense,

19 creating fruit of lips.

Peace, peace to the far and near,” says Yahweh, “and I will heal him.

Isaiah 57:15–19 — New International Reader’s Version (NIrV)

15 The One who is highly honored lives forever.

His name is holy. He says,

“I live in a high and holy place.

But I also live with anyone who turns away from his sins.

I live with anyone who is not proud.

I give new life to him.

I give it to anyone who turns away from his sins.

16 I will not find fault with my people forever.

I will not always be angry with them.

If I were, I would cause their spirits to grow weak.

The very breath of life would go out of the people I created.

17 I was very angry with them.

They always longed for more and more of everything.

So I punished them for that sin.

I turned my face away from them because I was angry.

But they kept on wanting their own way.

18 I have seen what they have done.

But I will heal them.

I will guide them.

And I will comfort them just as I did before.

19 Then the people of Israel who are sorry for their sins will praise me.

I will give perfect peace to those who are far away and those who are near.

And I will heal them,” says the Lord.

I hid My face and was angry,

I will lead him and restore comfort to him and to his mourners,

19 Creating the praise of the lips.

Peace, peace to him who is far and to him who is near,”
