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.

Isaiah 25

25
Praise to the Victorious God
(Jeremiah 51:15–19)
1O Lord, You are my God!
I will exalt You;
I will praise Your name.
For You have worked wonders—
plans formed long ago—
in perfect faithfulness.
2Indeed, You have made the city a heap of rubble,
the fortified town a ruin.
The fortress of strangers is a city no more;
it will never be rebuilt.
3Therefore, a strong people will honor You.
The cities of ruthless nations will revere You.
4For You have been a refuge for the poor,
a stronghold for the needy in distress,
a refuge from the storm,
a shade from the heat.
For the breath of the ruthless
is like rain against a wall,
5like heat in a dry land.
You subdue the uproar of foreigners.
As the shade of a cloud cools the heat,
so the song of the ruthless is silenced.
6On this mountain the Lord of Hosts
will prepare a banquet for all the peoples,
a feast of aged wine, of choice meat,
of finely aged wine.
7On this mountain He will swallow up
the shroud that enfolds all peoples,
the sheet that covers all nations;
8He will swallow up death forever.#25:8 Or He will swallow up death in victory; cited in 1 Corinthians 15:54
The Lord GOD will wipe away the tears from every face #25:8 Cited in Revelation 7:17 and Revelation 21:4
and remove the disgrace of His people
from the whole earth.
For the Lord has spoken.
9And in that day it will be said, “Surely this is our God;
we have waited for Him, and He has saved us.
This is the Lord for whom we have waited.
Let us rejoice and be glad in His salvation.”
10For the hand of the Lord
will rest on this mountain.
But Moab will be trampled in his place
as straw is trodden into the dung pile.
11He will spread out his hands within it,
as a swimmer spreads his arms to swim.
His pride will be brought low,
despite #25:11 Or along with the skill of his hands.
12The high-walled fortress will be brought down,
cast to the ground, into the dust.
