THE BOOK OF THE PROPHET
In mount Zion the Lord shall prepare a gospel feast of fat things—He shall swallow up death in victory—It shall be said: Lo, this is our God.
O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.
For thou hast made of a city an heap; of a defenced city a ruin: a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built.
Therefore shall the strong people glorify thee, the city of the terrible nations shall fear thee.

of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord
hath spoken it.
¶ And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is
; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is
; we have bwaited
for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his csalvation
For in this mountain shall the hand of the Lord rest, and Moab shall be trodden down under him, even as straw is trodden down for the dunghill.
And he shall spread forth his hands in the midst of them, as he that swimmeth spreadeth forth his hands to swim: and he shall bring down their pride together with the spoils of their hands.
And the fortress of the high fort of thy walls shall he bring down, lay low, and
bring to the ground, even
to the adust
