Isaiah 26:1-9 Common English Bible (CEB)

Trusting in God forever

26 On that day, this song will be sung in the land of Judah:
Ours is a strong city!
    God makes salvation its walls and ramparts.
Open the gates and let a righteous nation enter,
    a nation that keeps faith.
Those with sound thoughts you will keep in peace,
    in peace because they trust in you.
Trust in the Lord forever,
    for the Lord is a rock for all ages.
He has thrown down those living on high,
    and he will level the lofty town,
    leveling it down to the earth;
    he will bring it down to dust.
The feet trample it,
    the feet of the poor,
    the steps of the needy.

The way of the righteous is level;
    you clear a path for the righteous.
In the path of your justice, Lord, we wait for you;
with all our being, we long for your name and your acclaim.
    At night I long for you with my whole being;
    my spirit within me watches for you.
When your judgments are at work in the earth,
    those living in the world learn righteousness.
