1Awake , awake ; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautifulgarments, O Jerusalem, the holycity: for henceforth there shall no morecome into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean.2Shake thyself from the dust;arise , and sit down , O Jerusalem:loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captivedaughter of Zion.3
For thus saith the LORD, Ye have sold yourselves for nought; and ye shall be redeemed without money.4
For thus saith the LordGOD, My people went downaforetime into Egypt to sojourn there; and the Assyrianoppressed them without cause.5
Now therefore, what have I here, saith the LORD, that my people is taken away for nought? they that rule over them make them to howl , saith the LORD; and my namecontinually every day is blasphemed .
Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that doth speak : behold, it is I.
