Baruch 5Common English Bible (CEB)

Take off your mourning clothes
and oppression, Jerusalem!
    Dress yourself in the dignity
    of God’s glory forever.
Wrap the justice that comes from God around yourself like a robe.
    Place the eternal one’s glory
    on your head like a crown.
God will show your brilliance everywhere under heaven.
    God will give you this name
    by which to be called forever:
    The Peace That Comes from Justice,
    The Honor That Comes
    from Reverence for God!
Get up, Jerusalem!
    Stand on the high place,
    and look around to the east!
See your children gathered
from the west to the east
    by the holy one’s word,
    as they rejoice that God has remembered them.
They went out from you on foot,
    driven along by their enemies,
        but God will bring them back to you,
        carried aloft with glory
        as on a royal throne.
God has ordered every high mountain and the eternal hills
to be brought down,
    and the valleys to be filled in
    to level the ground
        so that Israel may walk safely
        in God’s glory.
The woods and every fragrant tree
    have shaded Israel
    with God’s command.
God will lead Israel with gladness
    by the light that shines forth
    from his glory,
    with the mercy and righteousness
    that come from him.
