1
AWAKE, awake, O Zion;
put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city;
for henceforth there shall no more come into you the uncircumcised and the unclean.
2
Shake yourself from the dust;
arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem;
loose the bands from your neck, O captive daughter of Zion.
3
For thus says the LORD: You were sold for nought;
and you shall be redeemed without money.
4
For thus says the LORD God: My people went down at the first into Egypt to sojourn there;
and the Assyrian carried them away with violence.
5
Now therefore, what have I here, says the LORD, that my people have been carried away for nought?
Their rulers make them to wail, says the LORD;
and my name continually all the day is blasphemed.
6
Therefore my people shall know my name in that day;
for it is I who spoke;
behold, it is I.
7
¶ How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings glad tidings of peace;
who publishes good tidings of good, and who declares salvation;
who says to Zion, Your God reigns!
8
Your watchmen shall lift up their voices;
with the voice together shall they sing;
for they shall see eye to eye, when the LORD shall bring again Zion.
9
Break forth into joy, sing together, you waste places of Jerusalem;
for the LORD has comforted his people, he has redeemed Jerusalem.
10
The LORD has made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations;
and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.
11
Depart, depart, go out from thence, touch no unclean thing;
go out of the midst of her;
purge yourselves, you who bear the vessels of the LORD.
12
For you shall not go out with haste nor go by flight;
for the LORD will go before you;
and the God of Israel will gather you together.
13
Behold, my servant shall understand, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high.
14
Many were amazed at him;
for his appearance was marred more than that of any man, and his form more than that of the sons of men;
15
So shall he purify many nations;
kings shall shut their mouths because of him;
for that which had not been told them shall they see;
and that which they had not heard shall they understand.
