A Remnant of Israel

12 "But I will leave among you A 8humble and lowly people, And they will 9take refuge in the name of the LORD. 13 "The 10remnant of Israel will 11do no wrong And 12tell no lies, Nor will a deceitful tongue Be found in their mouths; For they will 13feed and lie down With no one to make them tremble." 14 Shout for joy, O daughter of Zion! 14Shout in triumph, O Israel! Rejoice and exult with all your heart, O daughter of Jerusalem! 15 The LORD has taken away 15His judgments against you, He has cleared away your enemies. The King of Israel, the LORD, is 16in your midst; You will 17fear disaster no more. 16 18In that day it will be said to Jerusalem: "19Do not be afraid, O Zion; 20Do not let your hands fall limp. 17 "The LORD your God is 21in your midst, A e22victorious warrior. He will 23exult over you with joy, He will fbe quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy. 18 "I will gather those who 24grieve about the appointed feasts - They gcame from you, O Zion; The reproach of exile is a burden on hthem. 19 "Behold, I am going to deal at that time With all your 25oppressors, I will save the 26lame And gather the outcast, And I will turn their 27shame into 28praise and renown In all the earth. 20 "At that time I will 29bring you in, Even at the time when I gather you together; Indeed, I will give you 30renown and praise Among all the peoples of the earth, When I 31restore your fortunes before your eyes," Says the LORD.
