ISA-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.

ISA-26:2 Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which

keepeth the truth may enter in.

ISA-26:3 Thou wilt keep [him] in perfect peace, [whose] mind

[is] stayed [on thee]: because he trusteth in thee.

ISA-26:4 Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH

[is] everlasting strength:

ISA-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.

ISA-26:6 The foot shall tread it down, [even] the feet of the

poor, [and] the steps of the needy.

ISA-26:7 The way of the just [is] uprightness: thou, most

upright, dost weigh the path of the just.

ISA-26:8 Yea, 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.

ISA-26:9 With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea,

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 righteousness.

ISA-26:10 Let favour be showed to the wicked, [yet] will he not

learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal

unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the LORD.

ISA-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; yea, the fire of thine enemies shall devour them.

ISA-26:12 LORD, thou wilt ordain peace for us: for thou also

hast wrought all our works in us.

ISA-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


ISA-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.

ISA-26:15 Thou hast increased the nation, O LORD, thou hast

increased the nation: thou art glorified: thou hadst removed

[it] far [unto] all the ends of the earth.

ISA-26:16 LORD, in trouble have they visited thee, they poured

out a prayer [when] thy chastening [was] upon them.

ISA-26:17 Like 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.

ISA-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 in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the

world fallen.

ISA-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
