“At that time,[f] the Lord’s branch will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the land will be the pride and glory of the survivors of Israel and Judah.[g] Whoever[h] survives in Zion and whoever remains in Jerusalem will be called holy—everyone who has been appointed to survive in Jerusalem— when the Lord will have washed away the filth of the women[i] of Zion, cleaning up Jerusalem’s guilt[j] by a spirit of judgment and a spirit of tempest.[k] Then the Lord will create over the entire site of Mount Zion—including over those who assemble there—a cloud by day[l] and also to serve as a refuge and shelter from storms and rain.”
