Yeshayahu 61:10 - 63:9

Isaiah 61:10 - 63:9

10  I greatly rejoice in יהוה, my being exults in my Elohim. For He has put garments of deliverance on me, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

11  For as the earth brings forth its bud, as the garden causes the seed to shoot up, so the Master יהוה causes righteousness and praise to shoot up before all the nations!

Yeshayahu 62

1  For Tsiyon's sake I am not silent, and for Yerushalayim's sake I do not rest, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her deliverance as a lamp that burns.

2  And the nations shall see your righteousness, and all sovereigns your esteem. And you shall be called by a new name, which the mouth of יהוה designates.

3  And you shall be a crown of comeliness in the hand of יהוה, and a royal head-dress in the hand of your Elohim.

4  No longer are you called "Forsaken," and no longer is your land called "Deserted." But you shall be called "I delight in her," and your land "Married," for יהוה shall delight in you, and your land be married.

5  For as a young man marries a maiden, so shall your sons marry you. And as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your Elohim rejoice over you.

6  I have set watchmen on your walls, O Yerushalayim, all the day and all the night, continually, who are not silent. You who remember יהוה, give yourselves no rest,

7  and give Him no rest till He establishes and till He makes Yerushalayim a praise in the earth.

8  יהוה has sworn by His right hand and by the arm of His strength, "No more do I give your grain to be food for your enemies, nor do sons of the foreigner drink your new wine, for which you have laboured;

9  but those gathering it shall eat it, and hallelu- יהוה. And those collecting it shall drink it in My qodesh courts."

10  Pass through, pass through the gates! Prepare the way for the people. Build up, build up the highway! Remove the stones. Lift up a banner for the peoples!

11  See, יהוה has proclaimed to the end of the earth: "Say to the daughter of Tsiyon, ‘See, your deliverance has come; see, His reward is with Him, and His work before Him.' "

12  And they shall be called, "The Qodesh People, the Redeemed of יהוה." And you shall be called, "Sought Out, a City Not Forsaken."

Yeshayahu 63

1  Who is this coming from Eḏom, with garments of glowing colours from Botsrah, who is robed in splendour, striding forward in the greatness of His strength? "It is I who speak in righteousness, mighty to save."

2  Why is there red on Your raiment, and Your garments like one who treads in the winepress?

3  "I have trodden the winepress alone, and from the peoples no one was with Me. And I trod them down in My displeasure, and I trampled them in My wrath. Their blood is sprinkled upon My garments, and I have defiled all My raiment.

4  "For a day of vengeance is in My heart, and the year of My redeemed has come.

5  "And I looked, but there was none helping, and I was astonished that there was none upholding. So My own arm saved for Me, and My wrath upheld Me.

6  "And I trod down peoples in My displeasure, and made them drunk in My wrath, and brought down their strength to earth."

7  Let me recount the kindnesses of יהוה and the praises of יהוה, according to all that יהוה has done for us, and the great goodness toward the house of Yisra'ĕl, which He has done for them according to His compassion, and according to His many kindnesses.

8  And He said, "They are My people, children who do not act falsely." And He became their Saviour.

9  In all their distress He was distressed, and the Messenger of His Presence saved them. In His love and in His compassion He redeemed them, and He lifted them up and carried them all the days of old.
