BibleOld TestamentIsaiah

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.


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.

16 For I will not be hostile forever
or perpetually angry,
for then man’s spirit would grow faint before me,
the life-giving breath I created.
