Isaiah chapter 57 verse 3 says this;

“But you—come here, you children of a sorceress, you offspring of adulterers and prostitutes!

The prophet Isaiah records the words of the Lord about a generation of the people of Israel who had strayed from adhering to their God and had gone after other gods.

Their  parents had also gone astray into the worship of foreign gods and had descended into adultery and prostitution and now this generation had devolved further into mocking of the things of God.

They now practiced unbridled lust as well as child sacrifices and they worshiped idols made of stone that  they had collected from ravines.

They marked their homes with symbols of loyalty to pagan gods and sacrificed to them. 

Still, Lord will restore the those who are contrite before the Lord. As Isaiah, in chapter 57 verse 15 wrote;

For this is what the high and exalted One says— he who lives forever, whose name is holy:

“I live in a high and holy place, but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite.

However, for the ones who pridefully refuse to abandon wickedness, Isaiah writes in chapter 57 verse 21;

“There is no peace,” says my God, “for the wicked.”
