The Holy Bible - The Book of the Prophet Isaiah, Chapter 26 (Latin)
1In 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.
2Open ye the gates, that the righteous nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.
3Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
4Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:
5For 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.
6The foot shall tread it down, even the feet of the poor, and the steps of the needy.
7The way of the just is uprightness: thou, most upright, dost weigh the path of the just.
8Yea, 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.
9With 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.
10Let 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.
11LORD, 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.
12LORD, thou wilt ordain peace for us: for thou also hast wrought all our works in us.
13O LORD our God, other lords beside thee have had dominion over us: but by thee only will we make mention of thy name.
14They 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.
15Thou 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.
16LORD, in trouble have they visited thee, they poured out a prayer when thy chastening was upon them.
17Like 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.
18We 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.
19Thy 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.
20Come, 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.
21For, 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.
1in die illa cantabitur canticum istud in terra Iuda urbs fortitudinis nostrae salvator ponetur in ea murus et antemurale
2aperite portas et ingrediatur gens iusta custodiens veritatem
3vetus error abiit servabis pacem pacem quia in te speravimus
4sperastis in Domino in saeculis aeternis in Domino Deo forti in perpetuum
5quia incurvabit habitantes in excelso civitatem sublimem humiliabit humiliabit eam usque ad terram detrahet eam usque ad pulverem
6conculcabit eam pes pedes pauperis gressus egenorum
7semita iusti recta est rectus callis iusti ad ambulandum
8et in semita iudiciorum tuorum Domine sustinuimus te nomen tuum et memoriale tuum in desiderio animae
9anima mea desideravit te in nocte sed et spiritu meo in praecordiis meis de mane vigilabo ad te cum feceris iudicia tua in terra iustitiam discent habitatores orbis
10misereamur impio et non discet iustitiam in terra sanctorum inique gessit et non videbit gloriam Domini
11Domine exaltetur manus tua et non videant videant et confundantur zelantes populi et ignis hostes tuos devoret
12Domine dabis pacem nobis omnia enim opera nostra operatus es nobis
13Domine Deus noster possederunt nos domini absque te tantum in te recordemur nominis tui
14morientes non vivant gigantes non resurgant propterea visitasti et contrivisti eos et perdidisti omnem memoriam eorum
15indulsisti genti Domine indulsisti genti numquid glorificatus es elongasti omnes terminos terrae
16Domine in angustia requisierunt te in tribulatione murmuris doctrina tua eis
17sicut quae concipit cum adpropinquaverit ad partum dolens clamat in doloribus suis sic facti sumus a facie tua Domine
18concepimus et quasi parturivimus et peperimus spiritum salutes non fecimus in terra ideo non ceciderunt habitatores terrae
19vivent mortui tui interfecti mei resurgent expergiscimini et laudate qui habitatis in pulvere quia ros lucis ros tuus et terram gigantum detrahes in ruinam
20vade populus meus intra in cubicula tua claude ostia tua super te abscondere modicum ad momentum donec pertranseat indignatio
21ecce enim Dominus egreditur de loco suo ut visitet iniquitatem habitatoris terrae contra eum et revelabit terra sanguinem suum et non operiet ultra interfectos suos
