Isaiah 25

Salvation and Judgment on That Day

1Lord, you are my God;a

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,a

a fortified city, into ruins;

the fortress of barbariansb 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 needya in his distress,

a refuge from storms and a shade from heat.b

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,a a

the Lord of Armies will prepare for all the peoples a feast of choice meat,b

a feast with aged wine, prime cuts of choice meat,B 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.a

8When he has swallowed up death once and for all,a

the Lord God will wipe away the tears

from every faceb

and remove his people’s disgracec

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.”a

10For the Lord’s power will rest on this mountain.

But Moaba will be trampled in his placeA

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.a

12The high-walled fortress will be brought down,

thrown to the ground, to the dust.a
