Awake, awake! Put on thy strength, O Zion! Put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city! For henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean.

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."
