1O Jehovah, you are my God. I exalt you, I laud your name, for you have done wonderful things, counsels from early times, in faithfulness, in trustworthiness.2For you have made a city a pile of stones, a fortified town a crumbling ruin, a dwelling tower of strangers to be no city, which will not be rebuilt even to time indefinite.3That is why those who are a strong people will glorify you; the town of the tyrannical nations, they will fear you.4For you have become a stronghold to the lowly one, a stronghold to the poor one in the distress that he has, a refuge from the rainstorm, a shade from the heat, when the blast of the tyrannical ones is like a rainstorm against a wall.5Like the heat in a waterless country, the noise of strangers you subdue, the heat with the shadow of a cloud. The melody itself of the tyrannical ones becomes suppressed.
6And Jehovah of armies will certainly make for all the peoples, in this mountain, a banquet of well‐oiled dishes, a banquet of [wine kept on] the dregs, of well‐oiled dishes filled with marrow, of [wine kept on] the dregs, filtered.7And in this mountain he will certainly swallow up the face of the envelopment that is enveloping over all the peoples, and the woven work that is interwoven upon all the nations.8He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces. And the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for Jehovah himself has spoken [it].
9And in that day one will certainly say: “Look! This is our God. We have hoped in him, and he will save us. This is Jehovah. We have hoped in him. Let us be joyful and rejoice in the salvation by him.”
10For the hand of Jehovah will settle down on this mountain, and Mo′ab must be trodden down in its place as when a straw heap is trodden down in a manure place.11And he must slap out his hands in the midst of it as when a swimmer slaps [them] out to swim, and he must abase its haughtiness with the tricky movements of his hands.12And the fortified city, with your high walls of security, he must lay low; he must abase [it], bring [it] into contact with the earth, to the dust.
