25 *O Lord, thou art my God;
aI will exalt thee, I will praise thy name;
Thy counsels eof old are faithfulness and truth.
2 For thou hast made fof a city an heap;
It shall never be built.
3 Therefore shall the strong people jglorify thee,
kThe city of the terrible nations shall fear thee.
4 For thou hast been la strength to the poor,
A strength to the needy in his distress,
When the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.
5 Thou shalt bring down othe noise of strangers,
As the heat in pa dry place;
Even the heat qwith the shadow of a cloud:
rThe branch of the terrible ones shall be brought low.
tA feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees,
Of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.
And xthe Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces;
And the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth:
yFor the Lord hath spoken it.
9 And it shall be said zin that day,
Lo, this is our God;
aWe have waited for him, and he will save us:
This is the Lord; awe have waited for him,
Even as straw is ||trodden down for the dunghill.
As he that swimmeth spreadeth forth his hands to swim:
And he shall bring down their pride
Together with the spoils of their hands.
