1 O Jehovah, thou my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name, for thou didst a wonder; counsels from far off, stability, faithfulness. 2 For thou didst set from a city to a heap, a fortified city to ruins: a palace of strangers from a city; it shall not be built forever. 3 For this shall the strong people honor thee, the city of terrible nations shall fear thee. 4 For thou wert a fortress to the poor, a fortress to the needy in straits; to him a refuge from the inundation, a shadow from the heat when the wind of the terrible ones as the inundation of the wall. 5 As the heat in Zion the noise of strangers thou shalt bring down; the heat with the shadow of a cloud: the song of the terrible shall be humbled.
6 Jehovah of armies will make to all peoples in this mountain a drinking of fatness, a drinking of lees of wine, fatness of marrows, strained lees of wine. 7 And he will swallow up in this mountain the face of the covering covered over all peoples, and the veil covered over all nations. 8 He swallowed up death for glory, the Lord Jehovah will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the reproach of his people he will remove from off all the earth, for Jehovah spake.
9 And it was said in that day, Behold, this our God, we hoped for him, and he will save us: this Jehovah, we hoped for him, we will rejoice and be glad in his salvation. 10 For the hand of Jehovah shall rest in this mountain, and Moab was thrust down under him as straw was thrust down in the water of the dunghill. 11 And he spread forth his hands in their midst, as he swimming will spread forth to swim: and he humbled their pride with the ambuscades of their hands. 12 And the fortress of the height of thy walls shall be brought low; be humbled, be struck to the earth, even to the dust.
