Isaiah 52

52
LII
1Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion!
Put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem! the holy city;
For there shall no more come unto thee the uncircumcised, and the unclean.
2Shake thyself from the dust, arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem!
Loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion!
3For thus saith Jehovah:
For nought have ye been sold,
And not with money shall ye be ransomed,
4For thus saith the Lord Jehovah:
My people went down aforetime into Egypt to sojourn there;
And the Assyrian oppressed them without cause.
5And now, what have I to do here, saith Jehovah,
Seeing that my people is taken away for nought?
They that rule over them howl, saith Jehovah,
And continually, every day, is my name blasphemed.
6Therefore my people shall know my name;
Therefore they shall know in that day
That I am He that doth speak: behold, it is I.
7How 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!
8The voice of thy watchmen! they lift up the voice; they shout for joy together:
For they shall see eye to eye,
When Jehovah restoreth Zion.
9Break out into singing, shout for joy together,
Ye waste places of Jerusalem!
For Jehovah hath comforted his people,
He hath redeemed Jerusalem.
10 Jehovah hath made bare his holy arm before the eyes of all the nations;
And all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.
11Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence;
Touch no unclean thing:
Go ye out from the midst of her;
Be ye clean, ye that bear the vessels of Jehovah!
12For ye shall not go out with haste,
Nor march along by flight;
For Jehovah will go before you,
And the God of Israel shall bring up your rear.
13Behold! my servant shall prosper;
He shall be exalted, and extolled, and be very high.
14As many were astonished at thee,
(His visage was disfigured more than any man,
And his form more than the sons of men:)
15So shall he sprinkle many nations:
Kings shall shut their mouths on account of him;
For what had not been told them, they shall see;
And what they had not heard, they shall perceive.

Isaiah 52

1 # Rev 21.27. Awake, awake,
put on your strength, O Zion;
put on your beautiful garments,
O Jerusalem, the holy city;
for there shall no more come into you
the uncircumcised and the unclean.
2Shake yourself from the dust, arise,
O captive#52.2 Cn: Heb sit Jerusalem;
loose the bonds from your neck,
O captive daughter of Zion.
3For thus says the Lord: “You were sold for nothing, and you shall be redeemed without money. 4For thus says the Lord God: My people went down at the first into Egypt to sojourn there, and the Assyrian oppressed them for nothing. 5#Rom 2.24. Now therefore what have I here, says the Lord, seeing that my people are taken away for nothing? Their rulers wail, says the Lord, and continually all the day my name is despised. 6Therefore my people shall know my name; therefore in that day they shall know that it is I who speak; here am I.”
7 # Acts 10.36; Rom 10.15; Eph 6.15. How beautiful upon the mountains
are the feet of him who brings good tidings,
who publishes peace, who brings good tidings of good,
who publishes salvation,
who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.”
8Hark, your watchmen lift up their voice,
together they sing for joy;
for eye to eye they see
the return of the Lord to Zion.
9Break forth together into singing,
you waste places of Jerusalem;
for the Lord has comforted his people,
he has redeemed Jerusalem.
10 # Lk 2.30; 3.6. The Lord has bared his holy arm
before the eyes of all the nations;
and all the ends of the earth shall see
the salvation of our God.
11 # 2 Cor 6.17. Depart, depart, go out thence,
touch no unclean thing;
go out from the midst of her, purify yourselves,
you who bear the vessels of the Lord.
12For you shall not go out in haste,
and you shall not go in flight,
for the Lord will go before you,
and the God of Israel will be your rear guard.
13Behold, my servant shall prosper,
he shall be exalted and lifted up,
and shall be very high.
14As many were astonished at him#52.14 Syr Tg: Heb you
his appearance was so marred, beyond human semblance,
and his form beyond that of the sons of men—
15 # Rom 15.21. so shall he startle#52.15 The meaning of the Hebrew word is uncertain many nations;
kings shall shut their mouths because of him;
for that which has not been told them they shall see,
and that which they have not heard they shall understand.
