O LORD, thou [art] my God; I will exalt34 thee, I will praise55 thy name; for thou hast done1 wonderful [things; thy] counsels of old [are] faithfulness [and] truth.
For thou hast made1 of a city an heap; [of] a defenced7 city a ruin: a palace of strangers5 to be no city; it shall never 5769 be built.11
Therefore shall the strong people glorify17 thee, the city of the terrible nations shall fear4 thee.
For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones [is] as a storm [against] the wall.
Thou shalt bring down55 the noise of strangers,5 as the heat in a dry place; [even] the heat with the shadow of a cloud: the branch of the terrible ones shall be brought low.4
And in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make1 unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow,30 of wines on the lees well refined.30
And he will destroy14 in this mountain the face of the covering cast6 over all people, and the vail that is spread7 over all nations.
He will swallow up14 death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away1 tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away55 from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken14 [it].
And it shall be said1 in that day, Lo, this [is] our God; we have waited14 for him, and he will save55 us: this [is] the LORD; we have waited14 for him, we will be glad4 and rejoice4 in his salvation.
For in this mountain shall the hand of the LORD rest,4 and Moab shall be trodden down8 under him, even as straw is trodden down9 for 4325 the dunghill.
And he shall spread forth14 his hands in the midst of them, as he that swimmeth6 spreadeth forth17 [his hands] to swim:2 and he shall bring down52 their pride together with the spoils of their hands.
And the fortress of the high fort of thy walls shall he bring down,52 lay low,52 [and] bring52 to the ground, [even] to the dust.
