In that day, everyone in the land of Judah will sing this song: Our city is 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, all 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 down the arrogant city. He brings it down to the dust.
The poor and oppressed trample it underfoot, and the needy walk all over it.
But for those who are righteous, the way is not steep and rough. You are a God who does what is right, and you smooth out the path ahead of them.
LORD, we show our trust in you by obeying your laws; our heart’s desire is to glorify your name.
In the night I search for you; in the morning I earnestly seek you. For only when you come to judge the earth will people learn what is right.
