"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.
Stand up, shake the dust off yourself! Take your seat, Jerusalem. Remove the bondsa from your neck, captive Daughter Zion."
For this is what the Lord says: "You were sold for nothing, and you will be redeemed without silver."
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.b5
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.c6
Therefore My people will know My name; therefore [they will know] on that day that I am He who says: Here I am."
