17 Awake, awake, stand up, O Jerusalem,
which hast drunk at the hand of the Lord the cup of his fury;
thou hast drunken the dregs of the cup of trembling,
and wrung them out.
18 There is none to guide her among all the sons whom she hath brought forth;
neither is there any that taketh her by the hand of all the sons that she hath brought up.
19 These two things are come unto thee;
who shall be sorry for thee?
desolation, and destruction,
and the famine, and the sword:
by whom shall I comfort thee?
20 Thy sons have fainted,
they lie at the head of all the streets, as a wild bull in a net:
they are full of the fury of the Lord,
the rebuke of thy God.

21 Therefore hear now this, thou afflicted,
and drunken, but not with wine:
22 thus saith thy Lord
the Lord, and thy God that pleadeth the cause of his people,
Behold, I have taken out of thine hand the cup of trembling,
even the dregs of the cup of my fury;
thou shalt no more drink it again:
23 but I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee;
which have said to thy soul, Bow down, that we may go over:
and thou hast laid thy body as the ground,
and as the street, to them that went over.

52 Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion;
put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city:
for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean.
Shake thyself from the dust;
arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem:
loose thyself from the bands of thy neck,
O captive daughter of Zion.
For thus saith the Lord,
Ye have sold yourselves for nought;
and ye shall be redeemed without money.
For thus saith the Lord God,
My people went down aforetime into Egypt to sojourn there;
and the Assyrian oppressed them without cause.
Now therefore, what have I here, saith the Lord,
that my people is taken away for nought?
they that rule over them make them to howl, saith the Lord;
and my name continually every day is blasphemed.
Therefore my people shall know my name:
therefore they shall know in that day that I am he that doth speak:
behold, it is I.

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings,
that publisheth peace;
that bringeth good tidings of good,
that publisheth salvation;
that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!
Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice;
with the voice together shall they sing:
for they shall see eye to eye, when the Lord shall bring again Zion.

Break forth into joy,
sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem:
for the Lord hath comforted his people,
he hath redeemed Jerusalem.
10 The Lord hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations;
and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.

11 Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence,
touch no unclean thing;
go ye out of the midst of her;
be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord.
12 For ye shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight:
for the Lord will go before you;
and the God of Israel will be your rereward.
