Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, athe holy city: for bhenceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised cand the unclean.
2 Shake thyself from the dust; arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem: dloose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion.
3 For thus saith the LORD, eYe have sold yourselves for nought; and ye shall be redeemed without money.
4 For thus saith the Lord GOD, My people went down aforetime into Egypt 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 fblasphemed.
6 Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I.
7 gHow beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth! 8 Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall hsee eye to eye, when the LORD shall bring again Zion.
9 Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem: for the LORD hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem. 10 The LORD hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and iall the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God. 11 jDepart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the LORD. 12 For kye shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight: lfor the LORD will go before you; mand the God of Israel will be your rereward.
13 Behold, nmy servant shall deal prudently, ohe shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high. 14 As many were astonied at thee; his pvisage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men: 15 qSo shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that rwhich had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.
