"The branch of the terrible ones shall be brought low" (Isa. 25:5)—The word "zemir," as used in the original Hebrew, can mean either or "branch"; while the verb translated "brought low" can refer to the silencing of the loud tones of a song of triumph. Hence the translation suggested by the American Standard Version: "The song of the terrible ones shall be brought low."
"He will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering" (Isa. 25:7)—Commentators gather from Isaiah 24:23 that the mountain in question is "mount Zion," on which the temple stood. Moffatt suggests: "On this mountain shall he strip away the mourning shroud from all mankind;" while Smith has: "He will destroy on this mountain the veil that veils all the peoples."
