Isaiah 26:7-9 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

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.

Isaiah 26:16-19 Revised Standard Version (RSV)

16 O Lord, in distress they sought thee,
    they poured out a prayer[a]
    when thy chastening was upon them.
17 Like a woman with child,
    who writhes and cries out in her pangs,
    when she is near her time,
so were we because of thee, O Lord;
18     we were with child, we writhed,
    we have as it were brought forth wind.
We have wrought no deliverance in the earth,
    and the inhabitants of the world have not fallen.
19 Thy dead shall live, their bodies[b] shall rise.
    O dwellers in the dust, awake and sing for joy!
For thy dew is a dew of light,
    and on the land of the shades thou wilt let it fall.
