Isaiah 25

Isaiah 25

Praise to God
1O Lord, You are my God.
#Ex. 15:2I will exalt You,
I will praise Your name,
#Ps. 98:1For You have done wonderful things;
#Num. 23:19Your counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.
2For You have made #Is. 21:9; 23:13; Jer. 51:37a city a ruin,
A fortified city a ruin,
A palace of foreigners to be a city no more;
It will never be rebuilt.
3Therefore the strong people will #Is. 24:15; Rev. 11:13glorify You;
The city of the terrible nations will fear You.
4For You have been a strength to the poor,
A strength to the needy in his distress,
#Is. 4:6A refuge from the storm,
A shade from the heat;
For the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.
5You will reduce the noise of aliens,
As heat in a dry place;
As heat in the shadow of a cloud,
The song of the terrible ones will be diminished.
6And in #(Is. 2:2–4; 56:7)this mountain
#Prov. 9:2; Matt. 22:4The Lord of hosts will make for #(Dan. 7:14; Matt. 8:11)all people
A feast of choice pieces,
A feast of wines on the lees,
Of fat things full of marrow,
Of well-refined wines on the lees.
7And He will destroy on this mountain
The surface of the covering cast over all people,
And #2 Cor. 3:15; (Eph. 4:18)the veil that is spread over all nations.
8He will #(Hos. 13:14; 1 Cor. 15:54; Rev. 20:14)swallow up death forever,
And the Lord God will #Is. 30:19; Rev. 7:17; 21:4wipe away tears from all faces;
The rebuke of His people
He will take away from all the earth;
For the Lord has spoken.
9And it will be said in that day:
“Behold, this is our God;
#Gen. 49:18; Is. 8:17; 26:8; (Titus 2:13)We have waited for Him, and He will save us.
This is the Lord;
We have waited for Him;
#Ps. 20:5We will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.”
10For on this mountain the hand of the Lord will rest,
And #Is. 16:14; Jer. 48:1–47; Ezek. 25:8–11; Amos 2:1–3; Zeph. 2:9Moab shall be trampled down under Him,
As straw is trampled down for the refuse heap.
11And He will spread out His hands in their midst
As a swimmer reaches out to swim,
And He will bring down their #Is. 24:4; 26:5pride
Together with the trickery of their hands.
12The #Is. 26:5fortress of the high fort of your walls
He will bring down, lay low,
And bring to the ground, down to the dust.
