Praise to God; Triumph over the Wicked (25:1–5)


25 1O  Lord,
You are my God.

I will exalt You;
I will praise Your name,

because You have done wonderful things,
plans of old, in perfect faithfulness.

2For You have made a city into a heap,
a fortified town into a ruin,

a palace of foreigners, a city no more;
it will never be rebuilt.

3Therefore mighty people will honor You;
a town of ruthless nations will fear You.

4For You have been a stronghold to the poor,
a stronghold to the needy in their distress,

a place of refuge from the storm,
shade from the heat,

when the wind of the ruthless is like a storm against a wall,
5like heat on parched ground.

You will subdue the roar of foreigners; as heat is diminished by the shade of a cloud, the song of the ruthless will be stilled.


The Lord Prepares a Feast for the Righteous (25:6–12)


6On this mountain, the LORD of Hosts will make
a feast of fat things for all people,
a feast of wines on the lees,
fat things full of marrow, well-refined, wines on the lees.

7And on this mountain He will swallow up
the covering that covers all peoples,
and the veil that is spread over all nations.

8He will swallow up death forever,
and the Lord, the LORD will wipe away the tears from all faces,
and He will remove the disgrace of His people from all the earth,
for the LORD has spoken.

9And it will be said on that day,

God’s covenant people

“Behold, this is our God; we have waited for Him, that He might save us.
This is the LORD; we have waited for Him.

Let us be joyful,
and let us rejoice in His salvation.

10For the hand of the LORD will rest on this mountain.

And Moab will be trodden down under Him,
as straw is trodden down in a dung-pit.

11And {Moab} will spread out its hands in the midst of it {the dung-pit},
as a swimmer spreads his hands to swim,

but He {the Lord} will lay low their pride together with the skill of His hands.
12And their high, fortified walls He will bring down.

He will lay low;
He will cast to the ground, even to dust.”
