Chapter 26

ISA.26:1 In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah: “We have a strong city; God will appoint salvation for walls and bulwarks.
ISA.26:2 Open the gates, That the righteous nation which keeps the truth may enter in.
ISA.26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.
ISA.26:4 Trust in the LORD forever, For in YAH, the LORD, is everlasting strength.
ISA.26:5 For He brings down those who dwell on high, The lofty city; He lays it low, He lays it low to the ground, He brings it down to the dust.
ISA.26:6 The foot shall tread it down-The feet of the poor And the steps of the needy.”
ISA.26:7 The way of the just is uprightness; O Most Upright, You weigh the path of the just.
ISA.26:8 Yes, in the way of Your judgments, O LORD, we have waited for You; The desire of our soul is for Your name And for the remembrance of You.
ISA.26:9 With my soul I have desired You in the night, Yes, by my spirit within me I will seek You early; For when Your judgments are in the earth, The inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
ISA.26:10 Let grace be shown to the wicked, Yet he will not learn righteousness; In the land of uprightness he will deal unjustly, And will not behold the majesty of the LORD.
ISA.26:11 LORD, when Your hand is lifted up, they will not see. But they will see and be ashamed For their envy of people; Yes, the fire of Your enemies shall devour them.
ISA.26:12 LORD, You will establish peace for us, For You have also done all our works in us.
ISA.26:13 O LORD our God, masters besides You Have had dominion over us; But by You only we make mention of Your name.
ISA.26:14 They are dead, they will not live; They are deceased, they will not rise. Therefore You have punished and destroyed them, And made all their memory to perish.
ISA.26:15 You have increased the nation, O LORD, You have increased the nation; You are glorified; You have expanded all the borders of the land.
ISA.26:16 LORD, in trouble they have visited You, They poured out a prayer when Your chastening was upon them.
ISA.26:17 As a woman with child Is in pain and cries out in her pangs, When she draws near the time of her delivery, So have we been in Your sight, O LORD.
ISA.26:18 We have been with child, we have been in pain; We have, as it were, brought forth wind; We have not accomplished any deliverance in the earth, Nor have the inhabitants of the world fallen.
ISA.26:19 Your dead shall live; Together with my dead body they shall arise. Awake and sing, you who dwell in dust; For your dew is like the dew of herbs, And the earth shall cast out the dead.
ISA.26:20 Come, my people, enter your chambers, And shut your doors behind you; Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, Until the indignation is past.
ISA.26:21 For behold, the LORD comes out of His place To punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; The earth will also disclose her blood, And will no more cover her slain.
