strength, O Zion; put on thy
beautiful garments, O Jerusalem,
the holy city: for henceforth
there shall no more come into thee

2 Shake thyself from the dust;
arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem:
loose thyself from the bands of
thy neck, O captive daughter of
3 For thus saith the LORD, Ye have
sold yourselves for nought; and ye
shall be redeemed without money.
4 For thus saith the Lord GOD, My
people went down aforetime into

nations; and all the ends of the
earth shall see the salvation of
11 Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out
from thence, touch no unclean
thing; go ye out of the midst of
her; be ye clean, that bear the
vessels of the LORD.
12 For ye shall not go out with
haste, nor go by flight: for the
LORD will go before you; and the
God of Israel will be your

prudently, he shall be exalted and
extolled, and be very high.

nations; the kings shall shut
their mouths at him: for that
which had not been told them shall
they see; and that which they had
not heard shall they consider.
