CHAPTER 25 Jun. 2 
A Hymn of Praise
Yahweh, You are My God. I will exalt You! I will praise Your name, for You have done wonderful things, things planned long ago, in complete faithfulness and truth. 2For You have made a city into a heap, a fortified city into a ruin, a palace of strangers to be no city; it will never be built. 3Therefore a strong people will glorify You, a city of awesome nations will fear You. 4For You have been a stronghold to the poor, a stronghold to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shade from the heat, when the blast of the dreaded ones is like a storm against the wall. 5As the heat in a dry place will You bring down the noise of strangers; as the heat by the shade of a cloud, the song of the dreaded ones will be brought low.
Death Removed for Ever
In this mountain Yahweh of Armies will make to all peoples a feast of fat things, a feast of choice wines, of fat things full of marrow, of well refined choice wines. 7He will destroy in this mountain the surface of the covering that covers all peoples, and the veil that is spread over all nations. 8He has swallowed up death forever! The Lord Yahweh will wipe away tears from off all faces. He will take the reproach of His people away from off all the earth, for Yahweh has spoken it. 9It shall be said in that day, Behold, this is our God! We have waited for Him, and He will save us! This is Yahweh! We have waited for Him. We will be glad and rejoice in His salvation! 10For in this mountain the hand of Yahweh will rest.
But Punishment for Moab 
Moab will be trodden down in his place, even like straw is trodden down in the water of the dunghill. 11He will spread out his hands in its midst, like one who swims spreads out hands to swim, but his pride will be humbled together with the craft of his hands. 12He has brought down the high fortress of your walls, laid them low and brought them to the ground, even to the dust.


25:6 A reference to the marriage supper of the Lord Jesus being held in Jerusalem, on the temple mount, at His return (Rev. 19:9).
25:8 He has swallowed up death forever- Quoted in 1 Cor. 15:54 about how death will be no more after Christ has returned, we have been resurrected and immortalized.
The Lord Yahweh will wipe away tears from off all faces-  Quoted in Rev. 7:17; 21:4 as being done by God at Christ’s return when the righteous are given eternal life.
25:9 These will be our feelings after Christ has returned, and we stand immortalized before His judgment seat. Our faith in God’s final, visible intervention on this earth and in our own lives will have finally come to realization.
