Isaiah 25

Song of Praise for God's Favor

1 O LORD, You are 1my God; I will exalt You, I will give thanks to Your name; For You have 2worked wonders, 3Plans formed long ago, with perfect faithfulness.
2 For You have made a city into a 4heap, A 5fortified city into a ruin; A 6palace of strangers is a city no more, It will never * be rebuilt.
4 For You have been a 9defense for the helpless, A defense for the needy in his distress, A 10refuge from the storm, a shade from the heat; For the breath of the 11ruthless Is like a rain storm against a wall.
5 Like heat in drought, You subdue the 12uproar of aliens; Like heat by the shadow of a cloud, the song of the ruthless is silenced.
6 13The LORD of hosts will prepare a lavish banquet for 14all peoples on this mountain; A banquet of aged wine, choice pieces with marrow, And refined, aged wine.
7 And on this mountain He will swallow up the 15covering * which is over all peoples, Even the veil which is stretched over all nations.
8 He will 16swallow up death for all time, And the Lord GOD will 17wipe tears away from all faces, And He will remove the 18reproach of His people from all the earth; For the LORD has spoken.
9 And it will be said in that day, "Behold, 19this is our God for whom we have 20waited that 21He might save us. This is the LORD for whom we have waited; 22Let us rejoice and be glad in His salvation."
10 For the hand of the LORD will rest on this mountain, And 23Moab will be trodden down in his place As straw is trodden down in the water of a manure pile.
11 And he will 24spread out his hands in the middle of it As a swimmer spreads out his hands to swim, But the Lord will 25lay low his pride together with the trickery of his hands.
12 The 26unassailable fortifications of your walls He will bring down, Lay low and cast to the ground, even to the dust.
