The Righteous Vanish!

 The righteous perishes,
And no man takes it to heart;
Merciful men are taken away,
While no one considers
That the righteous is taken away from evil.
He shall enter into peace;
They shall rest in their beds,
Each one walking in his uprightness.  
The Hebrew Word for Perish is 'āḇaḏ which can also mean vanish, flee, and escape! 


  1. MaryLu, I love this! I love these two verses--first identified to me by a friend after another friend's funeral. But. I had never seen it as an OT Rapture verse--which I truly believe it is. Jeff at just did a post on rapture typology in the OT:, but I don't recall referencing the Isaiah 57 verses. Great find! Blessings!

    1. This is MaryLu… There are tons of OT rapture references…this one a pastor pointed out. It’s amazing what you can find when you look at the original languages. I’ll have to check out unsalted. Blessings!!
