1Awake, 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.2Shake thyself from the dust; arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem: loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion.3For thus saith the LORD, Ye have sold yourselves for nought; and ye shall be redeemed without money.4For thus saith the Lord GOD, My people went down aforetime into Egypt to sojourn there; and the Assyrian oppressed them without cause.5Now 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 name continually every day is blasphemed.6Therefore my people shall know my name: therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that doth speak: behold, it is I.7How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!8Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when the LORD shall bring again Zion.9Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem: for the LORD hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem.10The LORD hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.11Depart 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.12For 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 rereward.13Behold, my servant shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high.14As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men:15So shall he sprinkle many 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.

The Lord’s Coming Salvation
1Awake, awake, put on your strength, O Zion; put on your beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city; for there shall no more come into you the uncircumcised and the unclean. (Ex 28:2; Ex 28:40; Ne 11:1; Isa 35:8; Isa 48:2; Isa 51:17; Isa 60:21; Joe 3:17; Zec 3:1; Re 21:27)2Shake yourself from the dust and arise; be seated, O Jerusalem; loose the bonds from your neck, O captive daughter of Zion. (Isa 51:14; Isa 51:23)3For thus says the Lord: “You were sold for nothing, and you shall be redeemed without money.” (Isa 45:13; Isa 50:1; 1Pe 1:18)4For thus says the Lord God: “My people went down at the first into Egypt to sojourn there, and the Assyrian oppressed them for nothing. (Ge 46:6)5Now therefore what have I here,” declares the Lord, “seeing that my people are taken away for nothing? Their rulers wail,” declares the Lord, “and continually all the day my name is despised. (Eze 36:20; Eze 36:23; Ro 2:24)6Therefore my people shall know my name. Therefore in that day they shall know that it is I who speak; here I am.” (Isa 49:26)7How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.” (Isa 40:9; Na 1:15; Ro 10:15)8The voice of your watchmen—they lift up their voice; together they sing for joy; for eye to eye they see the return of the Lord to Zion. (Isa 33:17; Isa 33:22; Isa 62:6; 1Co 13:12; 1Jo 3:2; Re 22:4)9Break forth together into singing, you waste places of Jerusalem, for the Lord has comforted his people; he has redeemed Jerusalem. (Ps 98:4; Isa 40:1; Isa 51:3; Isa 51:12; Isa 58:12)10The Lord has bared his holy arm before the eyes of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God. (Ps 98:3; Isa 51:9; Lu 3:6)11Depart, depart, go out from there; touch no unclean thing; go out from the midst of her; purify yourselves, you who bear the vessels of the Lord. (Ezr 1:7; Isa 48:20; Jer 50:8; Jer 51:6; Jer 51:45; Zec 2:6; 2Co 6:17; Re 18:4)12For you shall not go out in haste, and you shall not go in flight, for the Lord will go before you, and the God of Israel will be your rear guard. (Ex 12:11; Ex 12:33; Ex 12:39; Ex 14:19; Isa 58:8; Mic 2:13)
He Was Pierced for Our Transgressions
13Behold, my servant shall act wisely; he shall be high and lifted up, and shall be exalted. (Isa 42:1)14As many were astonished at you— his appearance was so marred, beyond human semblance, and his form beyond that of the children of mankind— (Isa 53:2)15so shall he sprinkle many nations. Kings shall shut their mouths because of him, for that which has not been told them they see, and that which they have not heard they understand. (Le 4:6; Le 4:17; Isa 49:7; Isa 49:23; Ro 15:21; Ro 16:25)
