Isaiah 26:2-9 Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)

Open the gates,
    that the righteous nation which keeps faith
    may enter in.
Thou dost keep him in perfect peace,
    whose mind is stayed on thee,
    because he trusts in thee.
Trust in the Lord for ever,
    for the Lord God
    is an everlasting rock.
For he has brought low
    the inhabitants of the height,
    the lofty city.
He lays it low, lays it low to the ground,
    casts it to the dust.
The foot tramples it,
    the feet of the poor,
    the steps of the needy.”

The way of the righteous is level;
    thou[a] dost make smooth the path of the righteous.
In the path of thy judgments,
    O Lord, we wait for thee;
thy memorial name
    is the desire of our soul.
My soul yearns for thee in the night,
    my spirit within me earnestly seeks thee.
For when thy judgments are in the earth,
    the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.
