Isaiah 52


Isaiah 52


1. Awake! Awake! Put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful robes, O Jerusalem, the holy city, for never again shall come to you the uncircumcised and the unclean ones.

2. Shake yourself from the dust; rise up! Sit, Jerusalem! Free yourself from your neckbands, O captive daughter of Zion,

3. For thus says the LORD, “You were sold for nothing; and you shall be redeemed without money.”

4. For thus says the Lord GOD, “My people went down at first into Egypt to sojourn there; and the Assyrian oppressed them without cause.

5. Now therefore, what have I here,” says the LORD, “that My people are taken away for nothing? Those who rule over them howl,” says the LORD; “and without ceasing My name is blasphemed every day.

6. Therefore My people shall know My name, thus it shall be in that day, for I am He Who speaks; behold, it is I.”

7. How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good tidings, who publishes peace; who brings good news, who publishes salvation; who says to Zion, “Your God reigns!”

8. The voice of Your watchmen shall be lifted up! They lift up the voice together; they sing aloud, for they shall see eye to eye, when the LORD returns again to Zion.

9. Break out, sing together, you waste places of Jerusalem; for the LORD has comforted His people; He has redeemed Jerusalem.

10. The LORD has bared 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 there! Touch not the unclean. Go out of her midst; purify yourself, 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 be your rear guard.

13. Behold, My Servant shall rule well; He shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high.

14. Many were astonished at Him—for His body was so disfigured—even His form beyond that of the sons of men.

15. So shall He sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths because of Him; for they will see that which was not told to them; yea, what they had not heard, shall they consider.
