25 O Lord, jyou are my God;
kI will exalt you; I will praise your name,
lplans formed of old, faithful and sure.
2 For you have made the city ma heap,
3 nTherefore strong peoples will glorify you;
4 oFor you have been a stronghold to the poor,
pa shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat;
qfor the breath of the ruthless is like a storm against a wall,
5 rlike heat in a dry place.
6 sOn this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples
tof rich food full of marrow, of aged wine well refined.
7 And he will swallow up son this mountain
uthe veil that is spread over all nations.
8 vHe will swallow up death forever;
and wthe Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces,
and xthe reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth,
yfor the Lord has spoken.
“Behold, this is our God; zwe have waited for him, that he might save us.
alet us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”
