The prophet praiseth God, for his judgments,
Isaiah 25:1 O Yahweh! my God, thou art, I will exalt thee, I will praise thy Name, For thou hast done a wonderful thing,Purposes of long ago, Faithfulness in truth. Isaiah 25:2 For thou hast made, of a citadel, a mound, of a defenced city, a ruin,palaces for foreigners, to be no city, To times age-abiding, shall it not be built. Isaiah 25:3 For this cause, shall glorify theea strong people, The city of tyrannous nations, shall revere thee; Isaiah 25:4 For thou didst become, A refuge to the weak, A refuge to the needy, when distress was upon him,A shelter from the storm, A shade from the heat, When the blast of tyrants was like a storm against a wall. Isaiah 25:5 As heat in a desert, the pomp of foreigners, wilt thou subdue,Heatwith the shade of a cloud, The song of tyrants, become low.
for his saving benefits,
Isaiah 25:6 Then will Yahweh of hosts prepare, for all the peoples, in this mountain, A banquet of fat things, A banquet of old wines,Of fat things full of marrow, Of old wines well refined; Isaiah 25:7 And he will swallow up, in this mountain, The mask of the veil, the veil that is upon all the peoples,And the web that is woven over all the nations. Isaiah 25:8 Having swallowed up death itself victoriously, My Lord, Yahweh, will wipe away, tears from off all faces,And, the reproach of his own people, will he remove from off all the earth, For, Yahweh, hath spoken.
and for his victorious salvation.
Isaiah 25:9 So shall it be said, in that day, Lo! our God, is this! We waited for him, that he might save us,This, is Yahweh! We waited for him, Let us exult and rejoice, in his salvation. Isaiah 25:10 For the hand of Yahweh will settle down in this mountain,Then shall Moab be trodden down in its place, Like the treading down of a strawheap in the water of a dunghill; Isaiah 25:11 Should he spread forth his hands in the midst thereof, As a swimmer spreadeth forth to swim, Then would be laid low his pride, together with the devices of his hands. Isaiah 25:12 Yea, the lofty stronghold of thy walls, Hath he brought downLaid lowLevelled to the ground, even unto the dust.
