Pristine Grace

Isa 26:1-21, (KJV)
1  In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah; We have a strong city; salvation will God appoint for walls and bulwarks.
2  Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.
3  Thou wilt keep him in perfect 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 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.
13  O LORD our God, other lords beside thee have had dominion over us: but by thee only will we make mention of thy name.
14  They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise: therefore hast thou visited and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish.
15  Thou hast increased the nation, O LORD, thou hast increased the nation: thou art glorified: thou hadst removed it far unto all the ends of the earth.
16  LORD, in trouble have they visited thee, they poured out a prayer when thy chastening was upon them.
17  Like as a woman with child, that draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain, and crieth out in her pangs; so have we been in thy sight, O LORD.
18  We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen.
19  Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.
20  Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
21  For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

Isa 26:1-21, (MKJV)
1  In that day this song shall be sung in the land of Judah: We have a strong city; He sets up salvation as our walls and banks.
2  Open the gates, and the righteous nation shall enter in, keeping faithfulness.
3  You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You; because he trusts in You.
4  Trust in the LORD forever; for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength.
5  For He brings down those who dwell on high; He lays low the lofty city; He lays it low, even to the ground; He brings it to the dust.
6  The foot shall trample it, the feet of the poor and the steps of the needy.
7  The way of the just is uprightness; O Upright One, weigh the path of the just.
8  Yea, in the way of Your judgments, O LORD, we awaited You; for Your name and for Your memory is the desire of our soul.
9   With my soul I desired You in the night; yea, with my spirit within me I will seek You early; for when Your judgments are in the earth, the people of the world learn righteousness.
10  Let favor be shown to the wicked, yet he will not learn righteousness; in the land of uprightness he will deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the LORD.
11  LORD, Your hand is lifted up, they will not see; but they shall see and be ashamed for their envy toward Your people. Yes, the fire of Your enemies shall devour them.
12  LORD, You will ordain peace for us; for You also have worked all our works in us.
13  O Jehovah our God, lords besides You have had the rule over us; but by You only will we make mention of Your name.
14  Dead ones do not live; departed spirits do not rise. Therefore You have visited and destroyed them, and made all memory of them to perish.
15  You have increased the nation, O LORD, You have increased the nation; You are glorified; You have extended all the ends of the land.
16  LORD, in trouble they have visited You; they poured out a prayer; Your chastening was on them.
17  As a woman with child draws near to bear, she is in pain and cries out in her pangs; so have we been in Your sight, O LORD.
18  We conceived; we have been in pain, we gave birth to wind. We have not brought about any salvation in the earth; nor have the people of the world fallen.
19  Your dead ones shall live, together with my dead body they shall arise. Awake and sing, you who dwell in the dust; for your dew is as the dew of lights, and the earth shall cast out the dead.
20  Come, my people, enter into your rooms and shut your doors around you; hide for a little moment, until the fury has passed by.
21  For behold, the LORD comes out of His place to punish the people of the earth for their iniquity; the earth also shall reveal her blood, and shall no more cover her dead.

Isa 26:1-21, (NASB)
1  In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah: "We have a strong city; He sets up walls and ramparts for security.
2  "Open the gates, that the righteous nation may enter, The one that remains faithful.
3  "The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace, Because he trusts in You.
4  "Trust in the Lord forever, For in God the Lord, we have an everlasting Rock.
5  "For He has brought low those who dwell on high, the unassailable city; He lays it low, He lays it low to the ground, He casts it to the dust.
6  "The foot will trample it, The feet of the afflicted, the steps of the helpless."
7  The way of the righteous is smooth; O Upright One, make the path of the righteous level.
8  Indeed, while following the way of Your judgments, O Lord, We have waited for You eagerly; Your name, even Your memory, is the desire of our souls.
9  At night my soul longs for You, Indeed, my spirit within me seeks You diligently; For when the earth experiences Your judgments The inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.
10  Though the wicked is shown favor, He does not learn righteousness; He deals unjustly in the land of uprightness, And does not perceive the majesty of the Lord.
11  O Lord, Your hand is lifted up yet they do not see it. They see Your zeal for the people and are put to shame; Indeed, fire will devour Your enemies.
12  Lord, You will establish peace for us, Since You have also performed for us all our works.
13  O Lord our God, other masters besides You have ruled us; But through You alone we confess Your name.
14  The dead will not live, the departed spirits will not rise; Therefore You have punished and destroyed them, And You have wiped out all remembrance of them.
15  You have increased the nation, O Lord, You have increased the nation, You are glorified; You have extended all the borders of the land.
16  O Lord, they sought You in distress; They could only whisper a prayer, Your chastening was upon them.
17  As the pregnant woman approaches the time to give birth, She writhes and cries out in her labor pains, Thus were we before You, O Lord.
18  We were pregnant, we writhed in labor, We gave birth, as it seems, only to wind. We could not accomplish deliverance for the earth, Nor were inhabitants of the world born.
19  Your dead will live; Their corpses will rise. You who lie in the dust, awake and shout for joy, For your dew is as the dew of the dawn, And the earth will give birth to the departed spirits.
20  Come, my people, enter into your rooms And close your doors behind you; Hide for a little while Until indignation runs its course.
21  For behold, the Lord is about to come out from His place To punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; And the earth will reveal her bloodshed And will no longer cover her slain.

Isa 26:1-21, (LITV)
1  In that day this song shall be sung in the land of Judah: A strong city is ours; 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 perfect peace the mind stayed on You, for he trusts in You.
4  Trust in Jehovah forever, for in Jah Jehovah is everlasting strength.
5  For He bows the dwellers on high; He lays low the lofty city; He lays it low to the ground; He makes it touch even to the dust.
6  The foot shall trample it, the feet of the poor, steps of the weak.
7  The path for the just is uprightness. Upright One, level the track of the just.
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 finds favor; he does not learn righteousness; he deals perversely in the land of honesty, and 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 foes devours 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  Dead ones do not live; departed spirits do not rise; because of this You visited 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 put 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 woman with child draws near to bear, she writhes and cries out in her pangs. So are we before You, Jehovah.
18  We conceived; we writhe; 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  Your dead ones shall live, my dead body, they shall rise up. Awake and sing, dust dwellers; for the dew of lights is your dew; and the earth shall cast out departed spirits.
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 out of His place to visit his iniquity on those dwelling on the earth. The earth shall also reveal her blood, and shall no more cover over her slain ones.
