Bible: Isa 14:28-32

The Lord Will Judge the Philistines

14:28 In the year King Ahaz died, 1  this message was revealed: 2 

14:29 Don’t be so happy, all you Philistines,

just because the club that beat you has been broken! 3 

For a viper will grow out of the serpent’s root,

and its fruit will be a darting adder. 4 

14:30 The poor will graze in my pastures; 5 

the needy will rest securely.

But I will kill your root by famine;

it will put to death all your survivors. 6 

14:31 Wail, O city gate!

Cry out, O city!

Melt with fear, 7  all you Philistines!

For out of the north comes a cloud of smoke,

and there are no stragglers in its ranks. 8 

14:32 How will they respond to the messengers of this nation? 9 

Indeed, the Lord has made Zion secure;

the oppressed among his people will find safety in her.
