Isaiah 57:16

English Standard Version

16 For I will not contend forever, nor will I always be angry; for the spirit would grow faint before me, and the breath of life that I made. (Ge 6:3; Ps 103:9)

New International Version

16 I will not accuse them for ever, nor will I always be angry, for then they would faint away because of me – the very people I have created.

New International Reader’s Version

16 I will not find fault with my people for ever. I will not always be angry with them. If I were, I would cause their spirits to grow weak. The people I created would faint away.

King James Version

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.
