Today's Passage

Isaiah 25:1–8

Lord, you are my God;
   I will exalt you and praise your name,
   for in perfect faithfulness
   you have done wonderful things,
   things planned long ago.
2 You have made the city a heap of rubble,
   the fortified town a ruin,
   the foreigners’ stronghold a city no more;
   it will never be rebuilt.
3 Therefore strong peoples will honor you;
   cities of ruthless nations will revere you.
4 You have been a refuge for the poor,
   a refuge for the needy in their distress,
   a shelter from the storm
   and a shade from the heat.
   For the breath of the ruthless
   is like a storm driving against a wall
5 and like the heat of the desert.
   You silence the uproar of foreigners;
   as heat is reduced by the shadow of a cloud,
   so the song of the ruthless is stilled.

6 On this mountain the Lord Almighty will prepare
   a feast of rich food for all peoples,
   a banquet of aged wine—
   the best of meats and the finest of wines.
7 On this mountain he will destroy
   the shroud that enfolds all peoples,
   the sheet that covers all nations;
8 he will swallow up death forever.
   The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears
   from all faces;
   he will remove his people’s disgrace
   from all the earth.
   The Lord has spoken.
