Textus Receptus Bibles
Jay P. Green's Literal Translation 1993
|52:1||Awake! Awake! Put on your strength, Zion; put on your beautiful robes, O Jerusalem, the holy city. For never again shall uncircumcised and unclean ones come to you.|
|52:2||Shake yourself from the dust; rise up! Sit, Jerusalem; free yourself from your neck bands, O captive daughter of Zion.|
|52:3||For so says Jehovah: You were sold for nothing, and you will not be redeemed with silver.|
|52:4||For so says the Lord Jehovah: My people went down to Egypt at the first, to reside there, and without cause Assyria oppressed him.|
|52:5||So then what is to Me here, declares Jehovah? For My people is taken for nothing; his rulers howl, declares Jehovah. And My name is continually despised, every day.|
|52:6||So My people shall know My name thus in that day; for I am He speaking. Behold Me!|
|52:7||How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of him bringing good news, making peace heard, bringing good news, proclaiming salvation; saying to Zion, Your God reigns!|
|52:8||The voice of your watchmen, they lift the voice together, they sing aloud. For they shall see eye to eye when Jehovah brings back Zion.|
|52:9||Break out, sing together, waste places of Jerusalem; for Jehovah comforts His people; He has redeemed Jerusalem.|
|52:10||Jehovah has bared His holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.|
|52:11||Turn! Turn! Go out from there! Touch not the unclean! Go out of her midst, purify yourselves, bearers of the vessels of Jehovah.|
|52:12||For you shall not go out with haste, nor will you go by flight; for Jehovah is going before you, and the God of Israel gathers you.|
|52:13||Behold, My Servant shall rule wisely; He shall be exalted and lifted up and be very high.|
|52:14||Just as many were astonished over You, so much was the disfigurement from man, His appearance and His form from sons of mankind.|
|52:15||so He sprinkles from many nations. At Him kings shall shut their mouths; for they will see that which was not told to them; yea, what they had not heard, they will understand.|
