ISAIAH 26:16-2116 O Lord, in distress they sought you;they poured out a whispered prayerwhen your discipline was upon them. 17 Like a pregnant womanwho writhes and cries out in her pangswhen she is near to giving birth,so were we because of you, O Lord; 18 we were pregnant, we writhed,but we have given birth to wind.We have accomplished no deliverance in the earth,and the inhabitants of the world have not fallen. 19 Your dead shall live; their bodies shall rise.You who dwell in the dust, awake and sing for joy!For your dew is a dew of light,and the earth will give birth to the dead.
