Perfect Peace


3 You will keep [him] in perfect peace,
[Whose] mind [is] stayed [on you],
Because he trusts in you.
4 Trust* in Yahweh forever;
For in Yahweh,
[even] Yahweh,
Is an everlasting rock.


Isa. 25

O Yahweh,
You are my God.
I will exalt you;
I will praise your name;
For you have done wonderful things,
[Even] counsels of old in faithfulness
[And] truth.

2 For you have made
Of a city a heap,
Of a fortified city a ruin,
A palace of strangers to be no city.
It shall never be built.

3 Therefore shall a strong people glorify you;
A city of terrible nations shall fear you.

4 For you have been a stronghold to the poor,
A stronghold to the needy in his distress,
A refuge from the storm,
A shade from the heat,
When the blast of the terrible ones is
As a storm against the wall.

5 As the heat in a dry place,
You will bring down the noise of strangers;
As the heat by the shade of a cloud,
The song of the terrible ones shall be brought low.

And in This Mountain
Yahweh of Hosts will make unto all peoples
A feast of fat things,
A feast of wines on the lees,
Of fat things full of marrow,
Of wines on the lees well refined.

7 And he will destroy in This Mountain
The face of the covering that covers all peoples
And the veil that is spread over all nations.
8 He has swallowed up death forever.
And the Lord Yahweh will wipe away tears
From off all faces,
And the reproach of his people will he take away
From off all the earth.
For Yahweh has spoken it.

9 And it shall be said in that day:

Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him,
And he will save us;
This is Yahweh; we have waited for him.
We will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

10 For in This Mountain
The hand of Yahweh will rest,
And Moab shall be trodden down
In his place,
Even as straw is trodden down
In the water of the dung-hill.
11 And he shall spread forth his hands
In the midst thereof,
As he who swims spreads forth [his hands] to swim;
But [Yahweh] will lay low his pride together with
The craft of his hands.

12 And the high fortress of your walls
He has brought down,
Laid low,
And brought to the ground,
Even to the dust.

Isa. 26

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

We have a strong City;
Salvation will he appoint for walls and bulwarks.
2 Open* the gates,
That the righteous nation
Which keeps faith
May enter in.

3 You will keep [him] in perfect peace,
[Whose] mind [is] stayed [on you],
Because he trusts in you.
4 Trust* in Yahweh forever;
For in Yahweh,
[even] Yahweh,
Is an everlasting rock.

5 For he has brought down them who dwell on high;
The lofty city, He lays it low;
He lays it low even to the ground;
He brings it even to the dust.
6 The foot shall tread it down,
Even the feet of the poor
And the steps of the needy.
