Isaiah 25

25
XXV
1O Jehovah, thou art my God:
I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name;
For thou hast done wonderful things,
The counsels of old time with faithfulness and truth
2For thou hast made the city an heap;
The fortified town a ruin:
The palace of strangers to be no city;
It shall never be built again.
3Therefore shall the strong people glorify thee,
The city of the terrible nations shall fear thee.
4For thou hast been a defence to the poor,
A defence to the needy in his distress;
A refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat,
When the rage of the terrible ones was like a storm against the walk
5As heat in a dry land, so shalt thou bring down the tumult of the strangers;
As heat by the shadow of a cloud, so shall be brought low the triumphant song of the terrible ones.
6And in this mountain shall Jehovah of hosts make unto all the people
A feast of fat things, a feast of wine on the lees:
Of fat things full of marrow, of wine on the lees well refined.
7And He shall destroy in this mountain
The face of the covering which covereth all the people;
And the veil which is spread over all the nations.
8He shall utterly destroy death for ever,
And the Lord Jehovah shall wipe away the tear from off all faces;
And the reproach of his people shall he remove from off the whole earth:
For Jehovah hath spoken it.
9And it shall be said in that day: Lo, this is our God;
We have waited for him, and he hath saved us:
This is Jehovah; we have waited for him;
We will rejoice, and be glad, in his salvation.
10For the hand of Jehovah shall rest in this mountain:
And Moab shall be trodden down in his own place,
As straw is trodden down in a dunghill.
11And he shall spread forth his hands in the midst thereof,
As a swimmer spreadeth forth for to swim;
And He shall humble his pride, together with the deceit of his hands.
12And the bulwark of thy lofty walls shall he bring down, lay low,
And bring it to the ground, even to the dust.

Salvation and Judgment on That Day
1 Lord, you are my God;#Ex 15:2; Ps 118:28; Is 7:13; 44:17
I will exalt you. I will praise your name,
for you have accomplished wonders,
plans formed long ago, with perfect faithfulness.
2For you have turned the city into a pile of rocks,#Is 17:1; 26:5
a fortified city, into ruins;
the fortress of barbarians#Col 3:11 is no longer a city;
it will never be rebuilt.
3Therefore, a strong people will honor you.
The cities of violent nations will fear you.
4For you have been a stronghold for the poor person,
a stronghold for the needy#Mt 11:29 in his distress,
a refuge from storms and a shade from heat.#Is 4:6; 32:2
When the breath of the violent
is like a storm against a wall,
5like heat in a dry land,
you will subdue the uproar of barbarians.
As the shade of a cloud cools the heat of the day,
so he will silence the song of the violent.
6On this mountain,#25:6 = Mount Zion#Is 2:2–4
the Lord of Armies will prepare for all the peoples a feast of choice meat,#Is 24:23; Rv 19:9
a feast with aged wine, prime cuts of choice meat,#25:6 Lit wine, fat full of marrow fine vintage wine.
7On this mountain
he will swallow up the burial shroud,
the shroud over all the peoples,
the sheet covering all the nations.#2Co 3:15–16; Eph 4:18
8When he has swallowed up death once and for all,#Hs 13:14; 1Co 15:54; Rv 21:4
the Lord God will wipe away the tears
from every face#Is 30:19; 35:10; 51:11; 65:19; Rv 7:17; 21:4
and remove his people’s disgrace#Ps 89:50–51; Is 51:7; 54:4; Mt 5:11; 1Pt 4:14
from the whole earth,
for the Lord has spoken.
9On that day it will be said,
“Look, this is our God;
we have waited for him, and he has saved us.
This is the Lord; we have waited for him.
Let’s rejoice and be glad in his salvation.”#Is 35:1–2,10; 66:10
10For the Lord’s power will rest on this mountain.
But Moab#Nm 24:17; Is 15:1 will be trampled in his place#25:10 Or trampled under him
as straw is trampled in a dung pile.
11He will spread out his arms in the middle of it,
as a swimmer spreads out his arms to swim.
His pride will be brought low,
along with the trickery of his hands.#Is 2:10–12,15–17; 16:6,14
12The high-walled fortress will be brought down,
thrown to the ground, to the dust.#Is 26:5–6
