But I will leave within you the meek1 and humble, who trust2 in the name of the LORD.
The remnant3 of Israel will do no wrong;4 they will speak no lies,5 nor will deceit be found in their mouths.6 They will eat and lie down7 and no one will make them afraid.8"
Sing, O Daughter of Zion;9 shout aloud,10 O Israel! Be glad and rejoice11 with all your heart, O Daughter of Jerusalem!
The LORD has taken away your punishment, he has turned back your enemy. The LORD, the King of Israel, is with you;12 never again will you fear13 any harm.1416
On that day they will say to Jerusalem, "Do not fear, O Zion; do not let your hands hang limp.1517
The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save.16 He will take great delight17 in you, he will quiet you with his love,18 he will rejoice over you with singing."1918
"The sorrows for the appointed feasts I will remove from you; they are a burden and a reproach to you.a19
At that time I will deal with all who oppressed20 you; I will rescue the lame and gather those who have been scattered.21 I will give them praise22 and honor in every land where they were put to shame.
At that time I will gather you; at that time I will bring23 you home. I will give you honor24 and praise25 among all the peoples of the earth when I restore your fortunesb26 before your very eyes," says the LORD.
