1 O LORD, thou art my God, I will praise thee, and magnify thy name: For thou bringest marvelous things to pass, according to thine old counsels, truly and steadfastly. 2 Thou makest of towns, heaps of stone; and of head 3 Therefore shall the mighty people give glory unto thee, and the cities of the cruel Heathen must fear thee. 4 For thou art the poor man's help, and strength for the needful in his necessity. Thou art a defense against evil weather and a shadow against the heat, when the blast of the raging men is like a storm that casteth down a wall. 5 Like as the heat in a dry place wasteth all things, so shalt thou suppress the noise of the aliens. The heat is abated with the shadow of the cloud; even so shall God assuage the noise of the cruel tyrants.
6 Moreover, the LORD of Hosts shall once prepare a feast for all people upon the hill: A plenteous, costly, pleasant feast, of fat and well-fed beasts, of sweet and most pure things. 7 Upon the hill shall he take away the side veil that hangeth before the face of all people, and the covering wherewith all Gentiles are covered. 8 As for death, he shall utterly consume it. The LORD God shall wipe away the tears from all faces, and take away the rebuke of his people through the whole world. For the LORD himself hath said it.
9 In that day shall it be said, "Lo, this is our God: we have waited for him, and he shall save us. This is the LORD in whom we have hoped: Let us rejoice, and delight in his salvation. 10 For the hand of the LORD ceaseth upon this hill. But Moab shall be threshed down under him, like as the straw is trodden under feet in a dunghill. 11 For he shall stretch out his hand in the midst of them, like as a swimmer doth to swim. And with the strength of his hands shall he bring down their pride. 12 The stronghold also, and defense of thy walls hath he overthrown and cast down: and brought them to the ground, even into the dust.
