1 Take off your mourning clothes and oppression, Jerusalem! Dress yourself in the dignity of God's glory forever.
2 Wrap the justice that comes from God around yourself like a robe. Place the eternal one's glory on your head like a crown.
3 God will show your brilliance everywhere under heaven.
4 God will give you this name by which to be called forever: The Peace That Comes from Justice, The Honor That Comes from Reverence for God!
5 Get up, Jerusalem! Stand on the high place, and look around to the east! See your children gathered from the west to the east by the holy one's word, as they rejoice that God has remembered them.
6 They went out from you on foot, driven along by their enemies, but God will bring them back to you, carried aloft with glory as on a royal throne.
7 God has ordered every high mountain and the eternal hills to be brought down, and the valleys to be filled in to level the ground so that Israel may walk safely in God's glory.
8 The woods and every fragrant tree have shaded Israel with God's command.
9 God will lead Israel with gladness by the light that shines forth from his glory, with the mercy and righteousness that come from him.
