the fortified city a ruin;
the foreigners’ palace is a city no more;
it will never be rebuilt.

cities of ruthless nations will fear you.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 25:4 - For you have been a stronghold to the poor,
a stronghold to the needy in his distress,
a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat;
for the breath of the ruthless is like a storm against a wall,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 25:5 - like heat in a dry place.
You subdue the noise of the foreigners;
as heat by the shade of a cloud,
so the song of the ruthless is put down.

the covering that is cast over all peoples,
the veil that is spread over all nations.

and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from all faces,
and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth,
for the LORD has spoken.

“Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us.
This is the LORD; we have waited for him;
let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 25:10 - For the hand of the LORD will rest on this mountain,
and Moab shall be trampled down in his place,
as straw is trampled down in a dunghill.[fn]

as a swimmer spreads his hands out to swim,
but the LORD will lay low his pompous pride together with the skill[fn] of his hands.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 25:12 - And the high fortifications of his walls he will bring down,
lay low, and cast to the ground, to the dust.
