25 You, Lord, are my God! I will praise you for doing the wonderful things you had planned and promised since ancient times. 2 You have destroyed the fortress of our enemies, leaving their city in ruins. Nothing in that foreign city will ever be rebuilt. 3 Now strong and cruel nations will fear and honor you.
4 You have been a place of safety for the poor and needy in times of trouble. Brutal enemies pounded us like a heavy rain or the heat of the sun at noon, but you were our shelter. 5 Those wild foreigners struck like scorching desert heat. But you were like a cloud, protecting us from the sun. You kept our enemies from singing songs of victory.
The Lord Has Saved Us
6 On this mountain the Lord All-Powerful will prepare for all nations a feast of the finest foods. Choice wines and the best meats will be served. 7 Here the Lord will strip away the burial clothes that cover the nations. 8 The Lord All-Powerful will destroy the power of death and wipe away all tears. No longer will his people be insulted everywhere. The Lord has spoken!
9 At that time, people will say, “The Lord has saved us! Let’s celebrate. We waited and hoped— now our God is here.”
