1 Woe ato you, O destroyer,
While you were not destroyed;
And he bwho is treacherous, while others did not deal treacherously with him.
As soon as you finish destroying, cyou will be destroyed;
As soon as you cease to deal treacherously, others will ddeal treacherously with you.
Our salvation also in the dtime of distress.
3 At the sound of the tumult apeoples flee;
At the blifting up of Yourself nations disperse.
As locusts rushing about men rush about on it.
5 The Lord is aexalted, for He dwells on high;
He has bfilled Zion with justice and righteousness.
The dfear of the Lord is his treasure.
7 Behold, their brave men cry in 1the streets,
He has bbroken the covenant, he has despised the cities,
He has no regard for man.
9 aThe land mourns and pines away,
bLebanon is shamed and withers;
cSharon is like a desert plain,
And Bashan and Carmel 1lose their foliage.
10 “Now aI will arise,” says the Lord,
“Now I will be exalted, now I will be lifted up.
aLike cut thorns which are burned in the fire.
13 “You who are far away, ahear what I have done;
And you who are near, 1acknowledge My might.”
14 aSinners in Zion are terrified;
bTrembling has seized the godless.
“Who among us can live with cthe consuming fire?
15 He who awalks righteously and speaks with sincerity,
He who rejects 1unjust gain
And shakes his hands so that they hold no bribe;
He who stops his ears from hearing about bloodshed
And bshuts his eyes from looking upon evil;
bHis bread will be given him,
His water will be sure.
17 Your eyes will see athe King in His beauty;
They will behold ba far-distant land.
18 Your heart will meditate on aterror:
“Where is bhe who counts?
Where is he who weighs?
Where is he who counts the towers?”
Of a stammering tongue 3which no one understands.
20 aLook upon Zion, the city of our appointed feasts;
Your eyes will see Jerusalem, an bundisturbed habitation,
cA tent which will not be folded;
Its stakes will never be pulled up,
Nor any of its cords be torn apart.
A place of arivers and wide canals
On which no boat with oars will go,
And on which no mighty ship will pass—
22 For the Lord is our ajudge,
The Lord is bour lawgiver,
The Lord is cour king;
dHe will save us—
It cannot hold the base of its mast firmly,
Nor spread out the sail.
Then the aprey of an abundant spoil will be divided;
bThe lame will take the plunder.
24 And no resident will say, “I am asick”;
