Isaiah 26:1–9

THE SONG OF JUDAH

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

Open the gates

so a righteous nation can come in—

one that remains faithful.

You will keep the mind that is dependent on you

in perfect peace,a

for it is trusting in you.

Trust in the Lord forever,

because in the Lord, the Lord himself, is an everlasting rock!b

For he has humbled those who live in lofty places—

an inaccessible city.c

He brings it down; he brings it down to the ground;

he throws it to the dust.

Feet trample it,

the feet of the humble,

the steps of the poor.

GOD’S PEOPLE VINDICATED

The path of the righteous is level;d

you clear a straight path for the righteous.

Yes, Lord, we wait for you

in the path of your judgments.

Our desire is for your name and renown.e

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.
