Amplified Bible

Isaiah 25

Song of Praise for God’s Favor

1O Lord, You are my God;
I will exalt You, I will praise and give thanks to Your name;
For You have done miraculous things,
Plans formed long, long ago, [fulfilled] with perfect faithfulness.

For You have made a city into a heap [of trash],
A fortified city into a ruin;
A palace of [a]foreigners is no longer a city,
It will never be rebuilt.

Therefore a strong people will honor You;
Cities of terrible and violent nations will fear You.

For You have been a stronghold for the helpless,
A stronghold for the poor in his distress,
A shelter from the storm, a shade from the heat;
For the breath of tyrants
Is like a rainstorm against a wall.

Like heat in a dry land, You will subdue the noise of foreigners [rejoicing over their enemies];
Like heat in the shadow of a cloud, the song of the tyrants is [b]silenced.


On this mountain [Zion] the Lord of hosts will prepare a lavish banquet for all peoples [to welcome His reign on earth],
A banquet of aged wines—choice pieces [flavored] with marrow,
Of refined, aged wines.

And on this mountain He will destroy the covering that is [cast] over all peoples,
And the veil [of death] that is woven and spread over all the nations.

He will swallow up death [and abolish it] for all time.
And the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces,
And He will take away the disgrace of His people from all the earth;
For the Lord has spoken.

It will be said in that day,
“Indeed, this is our God for whom we have waited that He would save us.
This is the Lord for whom we have waited;
Let us shout for joy and rejoice in His salvation.”
10 
For the hand of the Lord will rest on this mountain [Zion],
And Moab will be trampled down in his place
As straw is trampled down in the [filthy] water of a manure pile.
11 
And Moab will spread out his hands in the middle of the filth
As a swimmer spreads out his hands to swim,
But the Lord will humiliate his pride in spite of the [skillful] movements of his hands.
12 
The high fortifications of your walls He will bring down,
Lay low, and cast to the ground, to the dust.

Esajas 25

En lovsang til Herren

1Almægtige Gud, du er min Gud.
    Jeg vil synge din pris og ære dit navn.
Underfulde ting har du gjort,
    udført dine planer fra fortids dage.
Byer har du lagt i ruiner,
    jævnet fæstningsværker med jorden.
Fjendens paladser er sunket i grus
    for aldrig mere at genopbygges.
Mægtige nationer skal lovprise dig,
    ondskabens byer skal ryste af skræk,
for du frelser dem, som stoler på dig,
    du hjælper de svage i deres nød.
Du giver dem læ for stormen og skygge for heden,
    du værner dem mod den ondskab og vold,
        der pisker imod dem som regn mod en mur.
Som kølende skyer i ørkenens hede
    dæmper du voldsmænds voldsomme vrede.

En fest for alverdens folk

På Zions bjerg vil Herren holde fest for alverdens folkeslag, et gilde med lækre retter og udsøgte vine. Til den tid vil han fjerne det tæppe af frygt, som indhyller alle folkeslag, for han vil tilintetgøre døden for evigt. Gud Herren vil tørre tårerne bort fra hver kind og fjerne forhånelsen af sit folk overalt på jorden. Det er Herren, der har talt.

Da skal hele folket udbryde: „Han er vores Gud! Vi satte vores lid til ham, og han frelste os. Han er den Herre, som vi ventede på med længsel. Lad os juble og glæde os, fordi han har frelst os.”

10 Herrens velsignelse hviler over Zions bjerg, men moabitterne bliver trampet ned som halm i en mødding. 11 De kæmper for at holde sig oven vande, men trods deres dygtighed ydmyger Herren dem for deres stoltheds og indbildskheds skyld. 12 Deres tårnhøje mure nedbryder han, så de synker i grus og bliver til støv.
