Baruch 5Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

Jerusalem, unclothe thee of the stole of thy mourning, and travailing; and clothe thou thee in the fairness, and (the) honour of it, which is of (or from) God to thee in everlasting glory. [Jerusalem, unclothe thee (of) the stole of mourning, and of thy travail; and clothe thee with fairness, and honour of it, that is to thee of (or from) God in everlasting glory.]

God of rightfulness shall (en)compass thee with a double cloth (or with a double cloak), and shall set on thine head a mitre of everlasting honour. [Forsooth God shall environ thee with (a) double cloth of rightwiseness, and shall put to (or on) thine head a mitre of everlasting honour.]

For God shall show his brightness in (or to) thee, which is under heaven.

For thy name shall be named of (or by) God to thee without end, The peace of rightfulness [or (The) Peace of rightwiseness], and The honour of piety.

Jerusalem, rise up, and stand in an high place [or stand in (or on) high], and behold about to the east; and see thy sons gathered together from the sun rising till to the west in (or by) the word of the Holy (One), that make joy [or joying] in the mind of God.

For they went out from thee, and were led (away) of enemies on feet (or and were led away on foot by their enemies); but the Lord shall bring to thee them borne into honour, as the sons of (the) realm. [Forsooth they went out from thee, led in feet of enemies (or led away on foot by the enemies); forsooth the Lord shall bring to thee them borne into honour, as the sons of (the) kingdom.]

For God hath ordained to make low each high hill, and (the) everlasting rocks of stones, and great valleys, to fill the unevenness of (the) earth [or and for to full-fill the even valleys into the evenness of (the) earth]; (so) that Israel (may) go diligently into the honour of God.

Forsooth the woods, and each tree of sweetness, (over)shadowed Israel, by the commandment of God.

For God shall bring Israel with mirth, into the light of his majesty, with mercy and rightfulness, which is of (or from) him. [Forsooth God shall lead-to Israel with mirth, in the light of his majesty, with mercy and rightwiseness, that is in him.]
