Isaiah 57:12
Context
God Condemns Idolatry

3But draw near here, you sons of the sorceress, the seed of the adulterer and the whore. 4Against whom do you sport yourselves? against whom make you a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? are you not children of transgression, a seed of falsehood. 5Enflaming yourselves with idols under every green tree, slaying the children in the valleys under the clefts of the rocks? 6Among the smooth stones of the stream is your portion; they, they are your lot: even to them have you poured a drink offering, you have offered a meat offering. Should I receive comfort in these? 7On a lofty and high mountain have you set your bed: even thither went you up to offer sacrifice. 8Behind the doors also and the posts have you set up your remembrance: for you have discovered yourself to another than me, and are gone up; you have enlarged your bed, and made you a covenant with them; you loved their bed where you saw it. 9And you went to the king with ointment, and did increase your perfumes, and did send your messengers far off, and did debase yourself even to hell. 10You are wearied in the greatness of your way; yet said you not, There is no hope: you have found the life of your hand; therefore you were not grieved. 11And of whom have you been afraid or feared, that you have lied, and have not remembered me, nor laid it to your heart? have not I held my peace even of old, and you fear me not? 12I will declare your righteousness, and your works; for they shall not profit you. 13When you cry, let your companies deliver you; but the wind shall carry them all away; vanity shall take them: but he that puts his trust in me shall possess the land, and shall inherit my holy mountain;
