Woe to Jerusalem and the Nations1 Woe to her who is a rebellious and b defiled,
The c tyrannical city!
2 She d heeded no voice,
She e accepted no instruction.
She did not f trust in the Lord,
She did not g draw near to her God.
3 Her h princes within her are roaring lions,
Her judges are i wolves at evening;
They leave nothing for the morning.
4 Her prophets are j reckless, treacherous men;
Her k priests have profaned the sanctuary.
They have done violence to the law.
5 The Lord is l righteous m within her;
He will n do no injustice.
o Every morning He brings His justice to light;
He does not fail.
But the unjust p knows no shame.
6 “I have cut off nations;
Their corner towers are in ruins.
I have made their streets q desolate,
With no one passing by;
Their r cities are laid waste,
Without a man s without an inhabitant.
7 “I said, ‘Surely you will revere Me,
t Accept instruction.’
So her dwelling will u not be cut off
According to all that I have appointed concerning her.
But they were eager to v corrupt all their deeds.
8 “Therefore w wait for Me,” declares the Lord,
“For the day when I rise up as a witness.
Indeed, My decision is to x gather nations,
To assemble kingdoms,
To pour out on them My indignation,
All My burning anger;
For y all the earth will be devoured
By the fire of My zeal.
9 “For then I will ▼
▼ Lit changegive to the peoples aa purified lips,
That all of them may ab call on the name of the Lord,
To serve Him ▼
▼ Lit with one shouldershoulder to shoulder.
10 “From beyond the rivers of ad Ethiopia
▼ Or suppliantsworshipers ▼
▼ Lit the daughter of My dispersed onesMy dispersed ones,
Will ag bring My offerings.
11 “In that day you will ah feel no shame
Because of all your deeds
By which you have rebelled against Me;
For then I will remove from your midst
Your ai proud, exulting ones,
And you will never again be haughty
On My aj holy mountain.
A Remnant of Israel12 “But I will leave among you
A ak humble and lowly people,
And they will al take refuge in the name of the Lord.
13 “The am remnant of Israel will an do no wrong
And ao tell no lies,
Nor will a deceitful tongue
Be found in their mouths;
For they will ap feed and lie down
With no one to make them tremble.”
14 Shout for joy, O daughter of Zion!
aq Shout in triumph, O Israel!
Rejoice and exult with all your heart,
O daughter of Jerusalem!
15 The Lord has taken away ar His judgments against you,
He has cleared away your enemies.
The King of Israel, the Lord, is as in your midst;
You will at fear disaster no more.
16 au In that day it will be said to Jerusalem:
av “Do not be afraid, O Zion;
aw Do not let your hands fall limp.
17 “The Lord your God is ax in your midst,
▼ Lit A warrior who saves, az victorious warrior.
He will ba exult over you with joy,
He will ▼
▼ Or with some ancient versions, renew you inbe quiet in His love,
He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.
18 “I will gather those who bc grieve about the appointed feasts—
▼ Lit werecame from you, O Zion;
The reproach of exile is a burden on ▼
▼ Lit herthem.
19 “Behold, I am going to deal at that time
With all your bf oppressors,
I will save the bg lame
And gather the outcast,
And I will turn their bh shame into bi praise and renown
In all the earth.
20 “At that time I will bj bring you in,
Even at the time when I gather you together;
Indeed, I will give you bk renown and praise
Among all the peoples of the earth,
When I bl restore your fortunes before your eyes,”
Says the Lord.
