Isaiah 52
Majority Standard Bible Par ▾ 

Deliverance for Jerusalem

1Awake, awake,

clothe yourself with strength, O Zion!

Put on your garments of splendor,

O Jerusalem, holy city!

For the uncircumcised and unclean

will no longer enter you.

2Shake off your dust!

Rise up and sit on your throne, O Jerusalem.

Remove the chains from your neck,

O captive Daughter of Zion.

3For this is what the LORD says:

“You were sold for nothing,

and without money you will be redeemed.”

4For this is what the Lord GOD says:

“At first My people went down to Egypt to live,

then Assyria oppressed them without cause.

5And now what have I here?

declares the LORD.

For My people have been taken without cause;

those who rule them taunt,a

declares the LORD,

and My name is blasphemed continually

all day long.b

6Therefore My people will know My name;

therefore they will know on that day

that I am He who speaks.

Here I am!”

7How beautiful on the mountains

are the feet of those who bring good news,c

who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings,

who proclaim salvation,

who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”

8Listen! Your watchmen lift up their voices,

together they shout for joy.

For every eye will see

when the LORD returns to Zion.

9Break forth in joy, sing together,

O ruins of Jerusalem,

for the LORD has comforted His people;

He has redeemed Jerusalem.

10The LORD has bared His holy arm

in the sight of all the nations;

all the ends of the earth will see

the salvation of our God.

11Depart, depart, go out from there!

Touch no unclean thing;d

come out from it, purify yourselves,

you who carry the vessels of the LORD.

12For you will not leave in a hurry

nor flee in haste,

for the LORD goes before you,

and the God of Israel is your rear guard.

The Servant Exalted
(Philippians 2:5–11)

13Behold, My Servant will prosper;e

He will be raised and lifted up and highly exalted.

14Just as many were appalled at Himf

His appearance was disfigured beyond that of any man,

and His form was marred beyond human likeness—

15so He will sprinkleg many nations.

Kings will shut their mouths because of Him.

For they will see what they have not been told,

and they will understand what they have not heard.h
