1 "Wake up, wake up; put on your strength, Zion! Put on your beautiful garments, Jerusalem, the Holy City! For the uncircumcised and the unclean will no longer enter you.
2 Stand up, shake the dust off yourself! Take your seat, Jerusalem. Remove the bondsa from your neck, captive Daughter Zion."
3 For this is what the Lord says: "You were sold for nothing, and you will be redeemed without silver."
4 For this is what the Lord God says: "At first My people went down to Egypt to live there, then Assyria oppressed them without cause.b
5 So now what have I here"- the Lord's declaration- "that My people are taken away for nothing? Its rulers wail"- the Lord's declaration- "and My name is continually blasphemed all day long.c
6 Therefore My people will know My name; therefore [they will know] on that day that I am He who says: Here I am."
7 How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the herald, who proclaims peace, who brings news of good things,d who proclaims salvation, who says to Zion, "Your God reigns!"
8 The voices of your watchmen- they lift up their voices, shouting for joy together; for every eye will see when the Lord returns to Zion.
9 Be joyful, rejoice together, you ruins of Jerusalem! For the Lord has comforted His people; He has redeemed Jerusalem.
10 The Lord has displayed His holy arm in the sight of all the nations; all the ends of the earth will see the salvation of our God.
11 Leave, leave, go out from there! Do not touch anything unclean; go out from her, purify yourselves,e you who carry the vessels of the Lord.
12 For you will not leave in a hurry, and you will not have to take flight; because the Lord is going before you, and the God of Israel is your rear guard.

The Servant's Suffering and Exaltation

13 See, My servantf will act wisely;g He will be raised and lifted up and greatly exalted.h
14 Just as many were appalled at Youi- His appearance was so disfigured that He did not look like a man, and His form did not resemble a human beingj-
15 so He will sprinkleklmany nations.m Kings will shut their mouths because of Him, For they will see what had not been told them, and they will understand what they had not heard.n
