Isaiah 14:28-32 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
28 In the year that King Ahaz died, there came this oracle:
29 Do not rejoice, Philistia, not one of you,
that the rod which struck you is broken;
For out of the serpent’s root shall come an adder,
its offspring shall be a flying saraph.
30 In my pastures the poor shall graze,
and the needy lie down in safety;
But I will kill your root with famine
that shall slay even your remnant.
31 Howl, O gate; cry out, O city!
Philistia, all of you melts away!
For there comes a smoke from the north,
without a straggler in its ranks.
32 What will one answer the messengers of the nations?
“The Lord has established Zion,
and in her the afflicted of his people find refuge.”
