Isaiah 26:1 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 26

Judah’s Praise and Prayer for Deliverance.[a] On that day this song shall be sung in the land of Judah:

“A strong city[b] have we;
    he sets up victory as our walls and ramparts.

Footnotes:

  1. 26:1–19 This text is a mixture of praise for the salvation that will take place, a confession of Judah’s inability to achieve deliverance on its own, and earnest prayer that God may quickly bring about the longed-for salvation.
  2. 26:1 Strong city: Jerusalem, the antithesis of the “city of chaos” (24:10); see note on 24:1–27:13.
