Isaiah 26:3-12 King James Version

3  Thou wilt keep him in perfect [1] peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. 4  Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord JEHOVAH is everlasting [2] strength:

5  For he bringeth down them that dwell on high; the lofty city, he layeth it low; he layeth it low, even to the ground; he bringeth it even to the dust. 6  The foot shall tread it down, even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy. 7  The way of the just is uprightness: thou, most upright, dost weigh the path of the just. 8  Yea, in the way of thy judgments, O Lord, have we waited for thee; the desire of our soul is to thy name, and to the remembrance of thee. 9  With my soul have I desired thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me will I seek thee early: for when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness. 10  Let favour be shewed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the Lord. 11  Lord, when thy hand is lifted up, they will not see: but they shall see, and be ashamed for their envy at the people; yea, the fire of thine enemies shall devour them.

12  Lord, thou wilt ordain peace for us: for thou also hast wrought all our works in us. [3]
