Authorized (King James) Version
25 O 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 faithfulness and truth.
2 For thou hast made of a city an heap;
of a defenced city a ruin:
a palace of strangers to be no city;
it shall never be built.
3 Therefore shall the strong people glorify thee,
the city of the terrible nations shall fear thee.
4 For 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.
5 Thou 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.
6 And in this mountain shall the Lord of hosts make unto 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.
7 And he will destroy in this mountain
the face of the covering cast over all people,
and the vail that is spread over all nations.
8 He will swallow up death in victory;
and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces;
and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth:
for the Lord hath spoken it.
9 And it shall be said in that day,
Lo, this is our God;
we have waited for him, and he will save us:
this is the Lord;
we have waited for him,
we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
