A Song of Trust in God's Provision

1In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah:

We have a strong city.

Salvation is established as its walls and ramparts.

2Open the gates that a righteous nation may enter—

one that remains faithful.

3The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace,

because he trusts in You.

4Trust in the LORD forever,

because GOD the LORD is the Rock eternal.

5For He has humbled those who dwell on high—

He lays the lofty city low.

He brings it down to the ground;

He casts it into the dust.

6Feet trample it down—

the feet of the oppressed,

the steps of the poor.

7The path of the righteous is level;

You clear a straight path for the righteous.

8Yes, we wait for You, O LORD;

we walk in the path of Your judgments.

Your name and renown

are the desire of our souls.

9My soul longs for You in the night;

indeed, my spirit within me diligently seeks You.

For when Your judgments come upon the earth,

the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.

10Though grace is shown to the wicked man,

he does not learn righteousness.

In the land of righteousness he acts unjustly

and fails to see the majesty of the LORD.

11O LORD, Your hand is upraised,

but they do not see it.

They will see Your zeal for Your people,

and be put to shame.

The fire set for Your enemies

will consume them!

12O LORD, You will establish peace for us,

for, indeed, all that we have accomplished,

You have done for us.

13O LORD our God, other lords besides You have had dominion,

but Your name alone do we confess.

14The dead will not live;

the departed spirits will not rise.

Therefore You have punished and destroyed them;

You have wiped out all memory of them.

15You have enlarged the nation, O LORD;

You have increased the nation.

You are glorified.

You have extended the borders of the land.

16O LORD, they sought You in their distress;

when You disciplined them, they poured out a quiet prayer.

17As a woman with child and about to give birth

writhes and cries out in pain,

that is how we were

in Your presence, O LORD.

18We were pregnant, we writhed in pain,

we gave birth to wind.

We have brought no salvation to the earth,

nor brought any life into the world.

19Your dead will live; their bodies will rise.

Awake and sing, you who dwell in the dust!

For your dew is like the dew of the morning,

and the earth will bring forth her dead.

20Go, my people, enter your rooms

and shut your doors behind you.

Hide yourselves a little while

until the wrath has passed.

21For behold, the LORD is coming out of His dwelling

to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity.

The earth will reveal her bloodshed

and no longer conceal her slain.
