Isaiah 52
Good News Translation
52Jerusalem, be strong and great again! Holy city of God, clothe yourself with splendor! The heathen will never enter your gates again.H5782H5782H3847H5797H6726H3847H8597H899H3389H6944H5892H3254H935H6189H2931 2Shake yourself free, Jerusalem! Rise from the dust and sit on your throne! Undo the chains that bind you, captive people of Zion!H5287H6083H6965H3427H3389H6605H4147H6677H7628H1323H6726 3The Sovereign LORD says to his people, "When you became slaves, no money was paid for you; in the same way nothing will be paid to set you free.H559H3068H4376H2600H1350H3701 4When you went to live in Egypt as foreigners, you did so of your own free will; Assyria, however, took you away by force and paid nothing for you.H559H136H3069H5971H3381H7223H4714H1481H804H6231H657 5And now in Babylonia the same thing has happened: you are captives, and nothing was paid for you. Those who rule over you boast and brag and constantly show contempt for me.H5002H3068H5971H3947H2600H4910H3213H5002H3068H8034H8548H3117H5006 6In time to come you will acknowledge that I am God and that I have spoken to you."H5971H3045H8034H3117H1696 7How wonderful it is to see a messenger coming across the mountains, bringing good news, the news of peace! He announces victory and says to Zion, "Your God is king!"H4998H2022H7272H1319H8085H7965H1319H2896H8085H3444H559H6726H430H4427 8Those who guard the city are shouting, shouting together for joy. They can see with their own eyes the return of the LORD to Zion.H6822H5375H6963H6963H3162H7442H7200H5869H5869H3068H7725H6726 9Break into shouts of joy, you ruins of Jerusalem! The LORD will rescue his city and comfort his people.H6476H7442H3162H2723H3389H3068H5162H5971H1350H3389 10The LORD will use his holy power; he will save his people, and all the world will see it.H3068H2834H6944H2220H5869H1471H657H776H7200H3444H430 11Be sure to leave Babylonia, all you that carry the Temple equipment. Touch no forbidden thing; keep yourselves holy and leave.H5493H5493H3318H5060H2931H3318H8432H1305H5375H3627H3068 12This time you will not have to leave in a hurry; you will not be trying to escape. The LORD your God will lead you and protect you on every side.H3318H2649H3212H4499H3068H1980H6440H430H3478H622 13The LORD says, "My servant will succeed in his task; he will be highly honored.H5650H7919H7311H5375H3966H1361 14Many people were shocked when they saw him; he was so disfigured that he hardly looked human.H7227H8074H4758H4893H376H8389H1121H120 15But now many nations will marvel at him, and kings will be speechless with amazement. They will see and understand something they had never known."H5137H7227H1471H4428H7092H6310H5608H7200H8085H995
