Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old
are faithfulness and truth.
2For thou hast
made of a city an heap; of a defenced city a ruin: a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built.
3Therefore shall the strong people glorify thee, the city of the terrible nations
shall fear thee.
4For 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.
shalt bring down the noise of strangers, 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.
in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat
things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.
he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations.
8He will swallow up death in victory; and
the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth:
for the LORD hath spoken it.
9And it shall
be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for
him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.
in this mountain shall the hand of the LORD rest, and Moab shall be trodden down under him, even as straw is trodden down
for the dunghill.
11And he shall spread forth
his hands in the midst of them, as he that swimmeth spreadeth forth his hands to swim: and he shall bring down their pride
together with the spoils of their hands.
the fortress of the high fort of thy walls shall he bring down, lay low, and bring to the ground, even to the dust.
