Isaiah 25 ©

1 The prophet praiseth God for his past judgments, 6 and for his future salvation of his people, and overthrow of their enemies.


aO LORD, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are bfaithfulness and truth.


cFor thou hast made of a city an heap; of a defenced city a ruin: a palace of dstrangers to be no city; it shall never be built.


eTherefore shall the strong people glorify thee, fthe city of the terrible nations shall fear thee.


gFor thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.


hThou shalt bring down the noise of strangers, as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud: the branch of the terrible ones shall be brought low.


iAnd in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of jwines on the *lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.

j Ca. 5.1.

kAnd he will 1destroy in this mountain the face of lthe covering 2cast over all people, and the *vail that is mspread over all nations.


He will nswallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will owipe away tears from off all faces; and the prebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it.


¶And it shall be said qin that day, Lo, rthis is our God; swe have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, twe will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.


For in this mountain ushall the hand of the LORD rest, and vMoab shall be 3trodden down under him, even as straw is 4trodden down for the dunghill.


wAnd he shall spread forth his hands in the midst of them, as he that swimmeth spreadeth forth his hands to swim: and he shall bring down their pride together with the spoils of their hands.


And the fortress of xthe high fort of thy walls shall he bring down, lay low, and bring to the ground, even to the dust.
