Isaiah 26

26:1 In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah;
 We have a strong city; salvation will [God] appoint [for] walls
 and bulwarks.
26:2 Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth
 the truth may enter in.
26:3 Thou wilt keep [him] in perfect peace, [whose] mind [is]
 stayed [on thee]: because he trusteth in thee.
26:4 Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH [is]
 everlasting strength:
26:5 For he bringeth down them that dwell on high; the lofty
 city, he layeth it low; he layeth it low, [even] to the ground;
 he bringeth it [even] to the dust.
26:6 The foot shall tread it down, [even] the feet of the poor,
 [and] the steps of the needy.
26:7 The way of the just [is] uprightness: thou, most upright,
 dost weigh the path of the just.
26:8 Yes, in the way of thy judgments, O LORD, have we waited
 for thee; the desire of [our] soul [is] to thy name, and to the
 remembrance of thee.
26:9 With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yes, with my
 spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments
 [are] in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn
26:10 Let favor 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.
26:11 LORD, [when] thy hand is lifted up, they will not see:
 [but] they shall see, and be ashamed for [their] envy at the
 people; yes, the fire of thy enemies shall devour them.
26:12 LORD, thou wilt ordain peace for us: for thou also hast
 wrought all our works in us.
26:13 O LORD our God, [other] lords beside thee have had
 dominion over us; [but] by thee only will we make mention of
 thy name.
26:14 [They are] dead, they shall not live; [they are] deceased,
 they shall not rise: therefore hast thou visited and destroyed
 them, and made all their memory to perish.
26:15 Thou hast increased the nation, O LORD, thou hast
 increased the nation; thou art glorified: thou hadst removed
 [it] far to all the ends of the earth.
26:16 LORD, in trouble have they visited thee, they poured out a
 prayer [when] thy chastening [was] upon them.
26:17 As a woman with child, [that] draweth near the time of her
 delivery, is in pain, [and] crieth out in her pangs; so have we
 been in thy sight, O LORD.
26:18 We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as
 it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance
 on the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.
26:19 Thy dead [men] shall live, [together with] my dead body
 shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for
 thy dew [is as] the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out
 the dead.
26:20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut
 thy doors about thee; hide thyself as it were for a little
 moment until the indignation shall be overpast.
26:21 For behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the
 inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also
 shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.
