1At that time seven women will grab hold of one man. They'll say to him, “We will eat our own food. We'll provide our own clothes. Just let us become your wives. Take away our shame!”
The Branch of the Lord
2At that time Israel's king will be beautiful and glorious. He will be called The Branch of the Lord. The fruit of the land will be the pride and glory of those who are still left alive in Israel.3Those who are left in Zion will be called holy. They will be recorded among those who are alive in Jerusalem.4The Lord will wash away the sin of the women in Zion. He will clean up the blood that was spilled there. He will judge those who spilled that blood. His burning anger will blaze out at them.5Then the Lord will create over Jerusalem a cloud of smoke by day. He will also create a glow of flaming fire at night. They will appear over all of Mount Zion and those who gather together there. The Lord's glory will be like a tent over them.6It will cover them and give them shade from the hot sun all day long. It will be a safe place where they can hide from storms and rain.
English Standard Version
1And seven women shall take hold of one man in that day, saying, “We will eat our own bread and wear our own clothes, only let us be called by your name; take away our reproach.” (Ge 30:23; Isa 3:6; Isa 13:12)
The Branch of the Lord Glorified
2In that day the branch of the Lord shall be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the land shall be the pride and honor of the survivors of Israel. (Isa 27:6; Jer 23:5; Jer 33:15; Zec 3:8; Zec 6:12)3And he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem will be called holy, everyone who has been recorded for life in Jerusalem, (Ex 32:32; Ps 69:28; Isa 6:13; Isa 10:20; Ob 1:17; Lu 10:20; Heb 12:23)4when the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion and cleansed the bloodstains of Jerusalem from its midst by a spirit of judgment and by a spirit of burning. (Isa 3:16; Isa 33:14; Eze 36:25; Mal 3:2; Mt 3:11; Lu 3:17)5Then the Lord will create over the whole site of Mount Zion and over her assemblies a cloud by day, and smoke and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory there will be a canopy. (Ex 13:21; Re 7:15)6There will be a booth for shade by day from the heat, and for a refuge and a shelter from the storm and rain. (Ps 27:5; Isa 25:4)
