25 Lord, you are my God. I honor you and praise you. You have done amazing things. You have always done what you said you would. You have done what you planned long ago. 2 You have made the city a pile of rocks. You have destroyed her walls. The city our enemies built with strong walls is gone. It will never be built again. 3 People from powerful nations will honor you. Cruel people from strong cities will fear you. 4 You help the poor people. You help the helpless when they are in danger. You are like a shelter from storms. You are like shade that protects them from the heat. The cruel people attack like a rainstorm beating against the wall. 5 The cruel people burn like the heat in the desert. But you, God, stop their violent attack. As a cloud cools a hot day, Lord, you silence the songs of those who have no mercy.
God’s Banquet for His Servants
6 The Lord of heaven’s armies will give a feast. It will be on this mountain for all people. It will be a feast with the best food and wine. The meat and wine will be the finest. 7 On this mountain God will destroy the veil that covers all nations. This veil, called “death,” covers all peoples. 8 But God will destroy death forever. The Lord God will wipe away every tear from every face. God will take away the shame of his people from the earth. The Lord has spoken.
9 At that time people will say, “Our God is doing this! We have trusted in him, and he has come to save us. We have been trusting our Lord. So we will rejoice and be happy when he saves us.” 10 The Lord will protect Jerusalem. But the Lord will crush our enemy Moab. Moab will be like straw that is trampled down in the manure. 11 They will spread their arms in it like a person who is swimming. The Lord will bring down their pride. All the clever things they have made will mean nothing. 12 Moab’s high walls protect them. But the Lord will destroy these walls. The Lord will throw them down on the ground. The stones will lie in the dust.
