Yeshayahu (Book of Isaiah), Chapter 26

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 In that day shall this song be sung in the land of Judah: We have a strong city; walls and bulwarks doth He appoint for salvation.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation that keepeth faithfulness may enter in.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 The mind stayed on Thee Thou keepest in perfect peace; because it trusteth in Thee.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 Trust ye in HaShem for ever, for HaShem is GOD, an everlasting Rock.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 For He hath brought down them that dwell on high, the lofty city, laying it low, laying it low even to the ground, bringing it even to the dust.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 The foot shall tread it down, even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 The way of the just is straight; Thou, Most Upright, makest plain the path of the just.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 Yea, in the way of Thy judgments, O HaShem, have we waited for Thee; to Thy name and to Thy memorial is the desire of our soul.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 With my soul have I desired Thee in the night; yea, with my spirit within me have I sought Thee earnestly; for when Thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 Let favour be shown to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness; in the land of uprightness will he deal wrongfully, and will not behold the majesty of HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 HaShem, Thy hand was lifted up, yet they see not; they shall see with shame Thy zeal for the people; yea, fire shall devour Thine adversaries.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 HaShem, Thou wilt establish peace for us; for Thou hast indeed wrought all our works for us.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 O HaShem our G-d, other lords beside Thee have had dominion over us; but by Thee only do we make mention of Thy name.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 The dead live not, the shades rise not; to that end hast Thou punished and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 Thou hast gotten Thee honour with the nations, O HaShem, yea, exceeding great honour with the nations; Thou art honoured unto the farthest ends of the earth.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 HaShem, in trouble have they sought Thee, silently they poured out a prayer when Thy chastening was upon them.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'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 at Thy presence, O HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'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 land; neither are the inhabitants of the world come to life.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000012-QINU`"'19 Thy dead shall live, my dead bodies shall arise--awake and sing, ye that dwell in the dust--for Thy dew is as the dew of light, and the earth shall bring to life the shades.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000013-QINU`"'20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee; hide thyself for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000014-QINU`"'21 For, behold, HaShem cometh forth out of His place to visit upon the inhabitants of the earth their iniquity; the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.
