Isaiah 57:6-8 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

You love to worship the smooth rocks in the rivers.
    You pour wine on them to worship them.
You give sacrifices to them, but those rocks are all you get.
    Do you think this makes me happy?
You make your bed on every hill
    and high mountain.[a]
You go up to those places
    and offer sacrifices.
You hide the things that help you remember me
    behind the doors and doorframes.[b]
You were with me,
    but you got up to go to them.
You spread out your bed
    and gave yourself to them.[c]
You love their beds
    and enjoy looking at their naked bodies.[d]

Footnotes:

  1. Isaiah 57:7 every hill and high mountain The people worshiped false gods in these places. The people thought these false gods would give them good crops and more children.
  2. Isaiah 57:8 doorframes The Israelites were supposed to put special things on their doorframes to help them remember God. See Deut. 6:9.
  3. Isaiah 57:8 gave yourself to them Or “and made agreements with them.”
  4. Isaiah 57:8 naked bodies This is a wordplay. The Hebrew word also means “memorial,” as in Isa. 56:5.
