What does Isaiah 25:12 mean?

This concludes the Lord's judgment of Moab. In this context, Moab is merely a symbol of all people who refuse to trust in the Lord to save them from their sin. They reject the Lord's gift of an eternity without death or the reproach of sin (John 3:16–18). In their pride, they refuse to wait on the Lord (Isaiah 25: 10–11). God will destroy their pride, their reputation, and all their accomplishments.

The Lord will also knock down Moab's walls. Human defenses will be useless when the Lord's judgment comes. There is no safe refuge from judgment other than in the Lord Himself, through faith in Christ. Any other defense is utterly worthless (John 3:36; Acts 4:12).
