A Song of Praise to the Lord

26In that day, everyone in the land of Judah will sing this song. Our city is strong! We are surrounded by the walls of God’s salvation.H3117H7892H7891H776H3063H5797H5892H3444H7896H2346H2426 2Open the gates to all who are righteous; allow the faithful to enter.H6605H8179H6662H1471H8104H529H935 3You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!H5341H7965H7965H3336H5564H982 4Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock.H982H3068H5703H3050H3068H5769H6697 5He humbles the proud and brings down the arrogant city. He brings it down to the dust.H7817H3427H4791H7682H7151H8213H8213H776H5060H6083 6The poor and oppressed trample it underfoot, and the needy walk all over it.H7272H7429H7272H6041H6471H1800 7But for those who are righteous, the way is not steep and rough. You are a God who does what is right, and you smooth out the path ahead of them.H734H6662H4339H3477H6424H4570H6662 8Lord, we show our trust in you by obeying your laws; our heart’s desire is to glorify your name.H734H4941H3068H6960H8378H5315H8034H2143 9All night long I search for you; in the morning I earnestly seek for God. For only when you come to judge the earth will people learn what is right.H5315H183H3915H7307H7130H7836H4941H776H3427H8398H3925H6664 10Your kindness to the wicked does not make them do good. Although others do right, the wicked keep doing wrong and take no notice of the Lord’s majesty.H2603H7563H1077H3925H6664H776H5229H5765H1077H7200H1348H3068 11O Lord, they pay no attention to your upraised fist. Show them your eagerness to defend your people. Then they will be ashamed. Let your fire consume your enemies.H3068H3027H7311H2372H2372H954H7068H5971H784H6862H398 12Lord, you will grant us peace; all we have accomplished is really from you.H3068H8239H7965H6466H4639 13O Lord our God, others have ruled us, but you alone are the one we worship.H3068H430H113H2108H1166H2142H8034 14Those we served before are dead and gone. Their departed spirits will never return! You attacked them and destroyed them, and they are long forgotten.H4191H2421H7496H6965H6485H8045H2143H6 15O Lord, you have made our nation great; yes, you have made us great. You have extended our borders, and we give you the glory!H3254H1471H3068H3254H1471H3513H7368H7099H776 16Lord, in distress we searched for you. We prayed beneath the burden of your discipline.H3068H6862H6485H6694H3908H4148 17Just as a pregnant woman writhes and cries out in pain as she gives birth, so were we in your presence, Lord.H3644H2030H7126H3205H2342H2199H2256H6440H3068 18We, too, writhe in agony, but nothing comes of our suffering. We have not given salvation to the earth, nor brought life into the world.H2029H2342H3644H3205H7307H6213H3444H776H1077H3427H8398H5307 19But those who die in the Lord will live; their bodies will rise again! Those who sleep in the earth will rise up and sing for joy! For your life-giving light will fall like dew on your people in the place of the dead!H4191H2421H5038H6965H6974H7442H7931H6083H2919H2919H219H776H5307H7496

Restoration for Israel

20Go home, my people, and lock your doors! Hide yourselves for a little while until the Lord’s anger has passed.H3212H5971H935H2315H5462H1817H2247H4592H7281H2195H5674 21Look! The Lord is coming from heaven to punish the people of the earth for their sins. The earth will no longer hide those who have been killed. They will be brought out for all to see.H3068H3318H4725H6485H3427H776H5771H776H1540H1818H3680H2026
