The Song of the Remnant

14 The remnant[a] lifts up its voice with a joyful shout.

15 and in the east[b] they give glory to the Lord God!
    The coastlands magnify the name of Yahweh,
    the Lord God of Israel!
16 From all over the world we hear their songs of praise—
    songs of glory and beauty to the Righteous One!
