Isaiah 25:11-12 Modern English Version (MEV)

11 He shall spread out his hands in the midst of it,
    as a swimmer spreads out his hands to swim,
yet the Lord shall bring down his pride
    together with the trickery of his hands.
12 The unassailable fortresses of your walls
    He shall bring down, lay low,
and bring to the ground,
    even to the dust.

11 They will stretch out their hands in it,
    as swimmers stretch out their hands to swim.
God will bring down their pride
    despite the cleverness[a] of their hands.
12 He will bring down your high fortified walls
    and lay them low;
he will bring them down to the ground,
    to the very dust.
