Isaiah 26 - Coverdale Miles 1535  Bible

A Song of Salvation

1. Then shal this songe be sunge in the londe of Iuda: We haue a stroge citie, the walles

2. Ope ye gates, yt the good people maye go in, which laboureth for the treuth.

3. And thou, which art the doer and hast the matter in honde: shalt prouyde for peace, eue the peace yt me hope for in the.

4. Hope stil in the LORDE, for in the LORDE God is euerlastinge stregth.

5. For why, it is he, yt bringeth lowe the hie mynded citesyns,

6. vnder the fete of the symple,

7. Thou (LORDE) cosidrest the path of ye rigtuous, whether it be right, whether the waye of ye rightuous be right.

8. Therfore (LORDE) we haue a respecte vnto the waye of thy iudgmentes, thy name and thy remebraunce reioyse the soule.

9. My soule lusteth after the all the night loge,

10. But the vngodly (though he haue recaued grace) yet lerneth he not rightuousnesse, but in that place where he is punished, he offendeth,

11. LORDE, they wil not se thine hie honde, but they shal se it, and be confounded: whe thou shalt deuoure them with the wrath of the people, and with the fyre of thine enemies.

12. But vnto vs (LORDE) prouyde for peace: for thou workest in vs all or workes.

13. O LORDE oure God, though soch lordes haue dominacion vpon vs as knowe not the: yet graute, that we maye only hope in the, and kepe thy name in remembraunce.

14. The malicious Tyrauntes whe they die, are nether in life nor in the resurrectio, for thou visitest the and rootest the out, and destroyest all the memoryall of them.

15. Agayne, thou increacest the people (o LORDE), thou increacest the people, thou shalt be praysed and magnified in all ye endes of the worlde.

16. The people that seke vnto the in trouble, that same aduersite which they complane of, is vnto the a chastenynge before the.

17. Like as a wife wt childe (whe hir trauayle cometh vpo her) is ashamed, crieth and suffreth the payne: Eue so are we (o LORDE) in thy sight.

18. We are with childe, we trauayle,

19. But as for thy dead men and ours, that be departed, they are in life and resurrection. They lie in the earth, they wake,

Take Refuge from the Coming Judgment

20. So go now my people in to thy chabre, and shut the doore to the, and suffre now ye twicklinge of an eye, till the wrath be ouerpast

21. For beholde, the LORDE wil go out of his habitacion,
