Isaiah 25 The Passion Translation (TPT)
Song of God’s Faithfulness
25 Lord Yahweh, you are my glorious God!
I will exalt you and praise your name forever,
for you have done so many wonderful things.
Well-thought-out plans you formed in ages past;
you’ve been faithful and true to fulfill them all!
2 The city that was once mighty
you’ve turned into a heap of rubble;
the fortified city now lies in ruins.
The foreigner’s fortress is no more and will never be rebuilt.
3 Therefore, superpower nations will glorify you
and the cities of terrorist nations will revere you.
4 You have been a fortress-protector for the poor,
a mighty stronghold for the needy in their distress,
a shelter from the sudden storm,
and a shade from the shimmering heat of the day.
For the fury of tyrants
was like a winter windstorm battering against the wall,
5 and like the heat of a drought in a desert land;
but you subdued the heat under the shade of clouds.
You alone silence the song of tyrants.
The Rich Feast of the Lord
6 The Lord Yahweh, Commander of Angel Armies,
will host a rich feast on this mountain for all peoples—
a feast with plenty of meat and well-aged wine,
with an abundance of food and the finest of wine.
7 And on this mountain, he will destroy the shroud
wrapped around all the people, the veil spread over all nations.
8 It is the gloom of death!
He will swallow it up in victory forever!
And God, Lord Yahweh, will wipe away
every tear from every face.
He will remove every trace of disgrace
that his people have suffered throughout the world,
for the Lord Yahweh has promised it!
9 In that day they will say,
“Behold! This is our God!
We’ve waited for him, and he saved us!
This one, the Lord Yahweh—he is worth the wait!
We will keep shouting with joy
as we find our bliss in his salvation-kiss!”
10 The mighty, gracious hand of the Lord Yahweh
will rest upon this mountain,
but the Moabites will be trampled under his feet
as straw gets trampled into the manure.
11 They will stretch out their arms in it
like a swimmer stretches out his arms to swim,
yet God will bring down their pride,
and they will thrash and sink despite their struggle.
12 He will tear down the high walls of Moab’s fortresses
and flatten them into the dust.
