1 Awake, awake, put on thy strength, O Zion; put on the garments of thy glory, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for the uncircumcised shall no more add to come into thee, and the unclean. 2 Shake thyself from dust: arise, sit down, O Jerusalem: loose thyself from the bonds of thy neck, thou captive daughter of Zion. 3 For thus said Jehovah, Ye sold yourselves gratuitously, and ye shall not be redeemed with silver. 4 Thus said the Lord Jehovah, My people at first went down to Egypt to sojourn there, and Assur oppressed them for nothing. 5 And now what to me here, says Jehovah, that my people were taken gratuitously? ruling, they will cause to give a sharp sound, says Jehovah; and continually all the day my name being despised. 6 For this, my people shall know my name: for this in that day, for I am he speaking: behold me.
7 How exalted upon the mountains the feet of him announcing good news, causing peace to be beard: announcing good news of good, causing salvation to be heard; saying to Zion, Thy God reigns! 8 They watching thee lifted up the voice; the voice together they will shout: for they shall see eye to eye in Jehovah's turning back Zion. 9 Break forth into joy, shout together, ye wastes of Jerusalem, for Jehovah comforted his people, he redeemed Jerusalem. 10 Jehovah uncovered his holy arm to the eyes of all nations, and all the ends of the earth saw the salvation of our God.
11 Turn aside, turn aside, come ye forth from thence; ye shall not touch the unclean thing; come forth from the midst of her; be separated ye lifting up the vessels of Jehovah. 12 For ye shall not come forth with haste, and in flight ye shall not go; for Jehovah goes before you, and he gathering you the God of Israel.
13 Behold, my servant shall be wise, he shall be exalted, and lifted up, and be high exceedingly. 14 As many were astonished at thee, his appearance being so spoiled from man, and his form from the sons of men. 15 So shall he cause many nations to rejoice for him; kings shall shut their mouth; for what was not recounted to them they saw; and what they heard not, they considered.
