The prophet praiseth God, for his judgments,
Isaiah 25:1 O LORD, thou [art] my God, I will exalt thee, I will praise thy Name; for thou hast done wonderfull things; [thy] counsels of old [are] faithfulnesse [and] trueth. Isaiah 25:2 For thou hast made of a citie, an heape; of a defenced city, a ruine: a palace of strangers, to be no citie, it shall neuer be built. Isaiah 25:3 Therefore shall the strong people glorifie thee, the city of the terrible nations shall feare thee. Isaiah 25:4 For thou hast bene a strength to the poore, a strength to the needy in his distresse, a refuge from the storme, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones [is] as a storme [against] the wall. Isaiah 25:5 Thou shalt bring downe the noise of strangers, as the heat in a dry place; [euen] the heat with the shadow of a cloud: the branch of the terrible ones shalbe brought low.
for his saving benefits,
Isaiah 25:6 And in this mountaine shall the LORD of hostes make vnto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined. Isaiah 25:7 And he wil destroy in this mountaine the face of the couering cast ouer all people, and the vaile that is spread ouer all nations. Isaiah 25:8 He will swallow vp death in victorie, and the Lord GOD wil wipe away teares from off al faces, and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken [it].
and for his victorious salvation.
Isaiah 25:9 And it shalbe said in that day, Loe, this [is] our God, we haue waited for him, and he will saue vs: this [is] the LORD, we haue waited for him, we wil be glad, and reioyce in his saluation. Isaiah 25:10 For in this mountaine shall the hand of the LORD rest, and Moab shalbe troden downe vnder him, euen as straw is troden downe for the dounghill. Isaiah 25:11 And hee shall spread foorth his hands in the midst of them, as hee that swimmeth spreadeth foorth his [hands] to swimme: and hee shall bring downe their pride together with the spoiles of their hands. Isaiah 25:12 And the fortresse of the high fort of thy walles shall hee bring downe, lay low, [and] bring to the ground, [euen] to the dust.
