2 He shall ||enter into peace:
They shall rest in their ebeds,
3 But draw near hither, ye sons of ffthe sorceress,
4 Against whom do ye hsport yourselves?
Against whom imake ye a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue?
Are ye not children of transgression, ka seed of falsehood,
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?
Even thither wentest thou up to offer sacrifice.
For sthou hast discovered thyself to another than me, and art gone up;
And didst zsend thy messengers far off,
And didst debase thyself even unto hell.
10 aThou art wearied in the greatness of thy way;
Yet bsaidst thou not, There is no hope:
Therefore thou wast not grieved.
gHave not I held my peace even of old,
And thou fearest me not?
And thy works; for they shall not profit thee.
But the wind shall carry them all away; vanity shall take them:
And shall inherit kmy holy mountain;
Take up the stumblingblock out of the way of my people.
tTo revive the spirit of the humble,
And to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
16 uFor I will not contend for ever,
Neither will I be always wroth:
zI hid me, and was wroth,
And he went on †frowardly in the way of his heart.
18 I have seen his ways, and awill heal him:
I will lead him also, and restore comforts unto him and to bhis mourners.
19 I create cthe fruit of the lips;
And aI will heal him.
20 But hthe wicked are like the troubled sea,
When it cannot rest,
Whose waters cast up mire and dirt.
21 iThere is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.
