Sing, O Daughter of Zion;1 shout aloud,2 O Israel! Be glad and rejoice3 with all your heart, O Daughter of Jerusalem!
The LORD has taken away your punishment, he has turned back your enemy. The LORD, the King of Israel, is with you;4 never again will you fear5 any harm.616
On that day they will say to Jerusalem, "Do not fear, O Zion; do not let your hands hang limp.717
The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save.8 He will take great delight9 in you, he will quiet you with his love,10 he will rejoice over you with singing."1118
"The sorrows for the appointed feasts I will remove from you; they are a burden and a reproach to you.a19
At that time I will deal with all who oppressed12 you; I will rescue the lame and gather those who have been scattered.13 I will give them praise14 and honor in every land where they were put to shame.
At that time I will gather you; at that time I will bring15 you home. I will give you honor16 and praise17 among all the peoples of the earth when I restore your fortunesb18 before your very eyes," says the LORD.
