Isaiah 49:24-26 Modern English Version (MEV)

24 Can the prey be taken from the mighty
    or the captives of a tyrant be delivered?

25 For thus says the Lord:

Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away,
    and the prey of the tyrant shall be delivered;
for I will contend with him who contends with you,
    and I will save your sons.
26 I will feed those who oppress you with their own flesh,
    and they shall be drunk with their own blood as with sweet wine.
And all flesh shall know
    that I, the Lord, am your Savior
    and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.

24 Can the prey be taken from the mighty,
or the captives of the righteous[a] be delivered?
25 For this is what the Lord says:
“Even the captives of a mighty man will be taken,
and the prey of a tyrant will be delivered;
I will contend with the one who contends with you,
and I will save your children.
26 I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh,
and they will be drunk with their own blood
as with sweet wine.
Then all flesh will know
that I, Yahweh, am your Savior,
and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.”
