In that day, everyone in the land of Judah will sing this song: Our city is now strong! We are surrounded by the walls of God's salvation.
Open the gates to all who are righteous; allow the faithful to enter.
You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, whose thoughts are fixed on you!
Trust in the LORD always, for the LORD GOD is the eternal Rock.
He humbles the proud and brings the arrogant city to the dust. Its walls come crashing down!
The poor and oppressed trample it underfoot.
But for those who are righteous, the path is not steep and rough. You are a God of justice, and you smooth out the road ahead of them.
LORD, we love to obey your laws; our heart's desire is to glorify your name.
