A Song of Praise for God’s Favor

1O LORD, You are my God!

I will exalt You;

I will praise Your name.

For You have worked wonders—

plans formed long ago—

in perfect faithfulness.

2Indeed, You have turned the city into a heap of rubble,

the fortified town into a ruin;

the fortress of strangers is a city no more;

it will never be rebuilt.

3Therefore, a strong people will honor You.

The cities of ruthless nations will revere You.

4For You have been a refuge for the poor,

a stronghold for the needy in distress,

a refuge from the storm,

a shade from the heat.

For the breath of the ruthless

is like rain against a wall,

5like heat in a dry land.

You subdue the uproar of foreigners.

As the shade of a cloud cools the heat,

so the song of the ruthless is silenced.

6On this mountain the LORD of Hosts

will prepare a banquet for all the peoples,

a feast of aged wine, of choice meat,

of finely aged wine.

7On this mountain He will swallow up

the shroud that enfolds all peoples,

the sheet that covers all nations;

8He will swallow up death forever.

The Lord GOD will wipe away the tears from every face

and remove the disgrace of His people

from the whole earth.

For the LORD has spoken.

9And in that day it will be said, “Surely this is our God;

we have waited for Him, and He has saved us.

This is the LORD for whom we have waited.

Let us rejoice and be glad in His salvation.”

10For the hand of the LORD

will rest on this mountain.

But Moab will be trampled in his place

as straw is trodden into the dung pile.

11He will spread out his hands within it,

as a swimmer spreads his arms to swim.

His pride will be brought low,

despitea the skill of his hands.

12The high-walled fortress will be brought down,

cast to the ground, into the dust.
