Last Days’ Deliverance

25 Adonai, You are my God, I will exalt You,
I will praise Your Name,
for You have done wonderful things,
plans of old with steadfast faithfulness.
For You have made a city into a heap,
a fortified city into a ruin,
a foreigner’s palace a city no more—
never to be rebuilt.
Therefore a strong people will honor You.
Cities of ruthless nations will fear You.
For You have been a stronghold for the poor,
a stronghold for the needy in distress,
a refuge from the rainstorm,
a shade from the heat.
For the breath of the ruthless
    is like a storm against the wall.
Like heat in a dry place,
You subdue the roar of foreigners.
Like heat in the shade of a cloud,
    the song of tyrants is brought low.

On this mountain, Adonai-Tzva’ot
will prepare a lavish banquet for all peoples—
a banquet of aged wine—
of rich food, of choice marrow, of aged wine well refined.
On this mountain He will swallow up
the shroud that enfolds all peoples,
the veil spread over all nations.
He will swallow up death forever.[a]
my Lord Adonai will wipe away tears from every face.[b]
He will remove His people’s reproach from all the earth.
For Adonai has spoken.

It will be said in that day:
“Behold, this is our God,
We waited for Him—He will save us.
This is Adonai—we waited for Him.
We will rejoice and be glad in His salvation.”
10 For the hand of Adonai will rest on this mountain.
Moab will be trampled under Him,
as straw is trampled in a manure pile.
11 When he spreads his hands in it
as a swimmer spreads his hands to swim,
his pride will be brought down low
together with the trickery of his hands.
12 He will level your high-fortified walls,
lay them low,
    and cast them down to the ground,
    down to dust.
