Withdraw Or Not?

Should I use a hardship withdrawal for my 401K to pay down/off my credit card revolving credit debt? The total debt is over $200K. I am 57. I do not anticipate retirement for another 10 years or so. I have approx $100k in the 401K that I can access. I know that there are IRS penalties for such a withdrawal but my thought was it is better to pay off the debt now and build the 401k back up. So, should I withdraw or not?
