26 On that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah:
We have a strong city.
Salvation is established as walls and ramparts.w
so a righteous nation can come in—
one that remains faithful.
in perfect peace,a
for it is trusting in you.
because in the Lord, the Lord himself, is an everlasting rock!b
an inaccessible city.c
He brings it down; he brings it down to the ground;
he throws it to the dust.
the feet of the humble,
the steps of the poor.
7 The path of the righteous is level;d
you clear a straight path for the righteous.
in the path of your judgments.
Our desire is for your name and renown.e
9 I long for you in the night;f
yes, my spirit within me diligently seeks you,
for when your judgments are in the land,
the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.
