Isaiah 1:25-27 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

25 I will punish you terribly
    and burn away everything
that makes you unfit
    to worship me.
26 Jerusalem, I will choose
judges and advisors
    like those you had before.
Your new name will be
    “Justice and Faithfulness.”

The Lord Will Save Jerusalem

27 Jerusalem, you will be saved
    by showing justice;[a]
Zion’s people who turn to me
will be saved
    by doing right.


  1. 1.27 by showing justice: Or “by my saving power.”

Isaiah 1:25-27 New International Version (NIV)

25 I will turn my hand against you;[a]
    I will thoroughly purge away your dross
    and remove all your impurities.
26 I will restore your leaders as in days of old,
    your rulers as at the beginning.
Afterward you will be called
    the City of Righteousness,
    the Faithful City.

27 Zion will be delivered with justice,
    her penitent ones with righteousness.
