In the last days, Zion will return, and Israel will be redeemed—The Messiah will deal prudently and be exalted.
1 aAwake, awake; put on thy bstrength, O cZion; put on thy dbeautiful egarments, O fJerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean.
2 aShake thyself from the dust; barise, and sit down, O Jerusalem: loose thyself from the cbands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion.
3 For thus saith the Lord, Ye have asold yourselves for nought; and ye shall be redeemed without bmoney.
4 For thus saith the Lord aGod, My people went down aforetime into bEgypt to sojourn there; and the Assyrian oppressed them without cause.
5 Now therefore, what have I here, saith the Lord, that my people is taken away for nought? they that rule over them make them to howl, saith the Lord; and my name continually every day is ablasphemed.
6 Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that aday that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I.
7 ¶ How abeautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bbringeth cgood dtidings, that epublisheth fpeace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto gZion, Thy God reigneth!
8 Thy awatchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall bsee eye to eye, when the Lord cshall bring again dZion.
9 ¶ Break forth into joy, sing together, ye awaste places of Jerusalem: for the Lord hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem.
10 The Lord hath made abare his holy barm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall csee the dsalvation of our God.
11 ¶ Depart ye, depart ye, go ye aout from thence, btouch no cunclean thing; go ye dout of the midst of her; be ye eclean, that bear the vessels of the Lord.
12 For ye shall not go out with ahaste, nor go by flight: for the Lord will go before you; and the God of Israel will be your brearward.
13 ¶ Behold, my aservant shall deal bprudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high.
14 As many were aastonied at thee; his bvisage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:
15 So shall he asprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been btold them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.
