Isaiah 26:7-15

7 The path of the righteous is level;
ayou make level the way of the righteous.
8In the path of your judgments,
O  Lord, we wait for you;
byour name and cremembrance
are the desire of our soul.
9My soul yearns for you in the night;
my spirit within me earnestly seeks you.
dFor when your judgments are in the earth,
the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.
10 eIf favor is shown to the wicked,
he does not learn righteousness;
in the land of uprightness he deals corruptly
and does not see the majesty of the  Lord.
11O  Lord fyour hand is lifted up,
but gthey do not see it.
Let them see your zeal for your people, and be ashamed.
Let hthe fire for your adversaries consume them.
12O  Lord, you will ordain ipeace for us,
for you have indeed done for us all our works.
13O  Lord our God,
jother lords besides you have ruled over us,
kbut your name alone we bring to remembrance.
14They are dead, they will not live;
they are shades, they will not arise;
to that end you have visited them with destruction
and wiped out all remembrance of them.
15 lBut you have increased the nation, O  Lord,
you have increased the nation; you are glorified;
myou have enlarged all the borders of the land.
