God has removed the cup of wrath from His people.

Scripture: Isaiah 51:17-23

ESV Text: Isaiah 51:17-23


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 51 17 Awake, awake, stand up, O Jerusalem, which hast drunk at the hand of the LORD the cup of his fury; thou hast drunken the dregs of the cup of trembling, and wrung them out. 18 There is none to guide her among all the sons whom she hath brought forth; neither is there any that taketh her by the hand of all the sons that she hath brought up. 19 These two things are come unto thee; who shall be sorry for thee? desolation, and destruction, and the famine, and the sword: by whom shall I comfort thee? 20 Thy sons have fainted, they lie at the head of all the streets, as a wild bull in a net: they are full of the fury of the LORD, the rebuke of thy God. 21 Therefore hear now this, thou afflicted, and drunken, but not with wine: 22 Thus saith thy Lord the LORD, and thy God that pleadeth the cause of his people, Behold, I have taken out of thine hand the cup of trembling, even the dregs of the cup of my fury; thou shalt no more drink it again: 23 But I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee; which have said to thy soul, Bow down, that we may go over: and thou hast laid thy body as the ground, and as the street, to them that went over.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 204:
Come Ye Faithful, Raise the Strain

— Organ Audio

1. Come, ye faithful, raise the strain 
Of triumphant gladness; 
God hath brought His Israel 
Into joy from sadness. 
‘Tis the spring of souls today: 
Christ hath burst His prison 
And from three days’ sleep in death 
As a sun hath risen. 

2. All the winter of our sins, 
Long and dark, is flying 
From His light, to whom we give 
Laud and praise undying. 
Neither could the gates of death 
Nor the tomb’s dark portal 
Nor the watchers nor the seal 
Hold Thee as a mortal. 

3. But today amidst Thine own 
Thou didst stand, bestowing 
That Thy peace which evermore 
Passeth human knowing. 
Come, ye faithful, raise the strain 
Of triumphant gladness; 
God hath brought His Israel 
Into joy from sadness.
