Isaiah 26 - King James 3 - The Literal Traslation

A Song of Salvation

1. In that day this song shall be sung in the land of Judah: A strong city to us; He sets up salvation as our walls and rampart.

2. Open the gates, and the righteous nation shall come in, keeping faithfulness.

3. You will keep in peace, perfect peace the mind sustained by You, for he trusts in You.

4. Trust in Jehovah forever, for in Jah Jehovah is an everlasting Rock.

5. For He bows those living on high; He lays low the lofty city; He lays it low to the ground; He strikes down even to the dust.

6. The foot shall trample it, the feet of the humble one, steps of the poor ones.

7. The path for the just one is uprightness; the Upright One will make level the track of the just one.

8. Yea, Jehovah, in the path of Your judgments we awaited You; for Your name and for Your memory is the desire of our soul.

9. With my soul I desire You in the night; yea, with my spirit within me I diligently seek You. For when Your judgments are in the earth, those living in the world learn righteousness.

10. The wicked one finds favor; he does not learn righteousness; he acts wrongfully in the land of straight things, and he does not see the majesty of Jehovah.

11. Jehovah, Your hand is high; they do not see; they see and are ashamed of the zeal of the people. Yea, the fire of Your adversaries devour them.

12. Jehovah, You will ordain peace for us; for also You have worked all our works for us.

13. Jehovah our God, masters beside You have governed us; only in You we will mention Your name.

14. Ones that died do not live; Departed spirits do not rise; thereforeYou called to account and destroyed them, and caused all memory of them to perish.

15. You have added to the nation, Jehovah; You have added to the nation, You are glorified; You have sent far off all the ends of the land.

16. Jehovah, they visited You in distress; they poured out a whisper; Your chastening was to them.

17. As a pregnant woman draws near to give birth, she writhes and cries out in her pangs. So are we before You, Jehovah.

18. We conceived; we writhed; as it were, we gave birth to wind. We have not worked salvation for the earth; and those living in the world have not fallen.

19. Yours who died shall live, my dead body, they shall rise up. Awake and sing, those dwelling in the dust; for the dew of lights is your dew; and the earth shall cast out departed spirits.

Take Refuge from the Coming Judgment

20. Come, My people, go in your rooms and shut your doors behind you. Hide for a little moment, until the fury passes.

21. For, behold, Jehovah comes from His place to visit his iniquity on one dwelling on the earth. On him the earth shall also reveal her blood, and not shall still cover over her being slain.
