Isaiah 38:17-18

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 17 Behold, it was for my own peace and welfare that I had great bitterness; but you have in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption; for you have cast all my sins behind your back.

 18 For the grave cannot praise you, death cannot celebrate you; those who go down into the pit cannot hope for your truth.
