God’s Deliverance of Rebellious Israel

14 This is what the Lord, your Redeemer,(A) the Holy One of Israel(B) says:

Because of you, I will send an army[a] to Babylon
and bring all of them as fugitives,[b]
even the Chaldeans(C) in the ships in which they rejoice.[c]

Zion’s Vindication

Do not rejoice over me,(A) my enemy!
Though I have fallen, I will stand up;(B)
though I sit in darkness,
the Lord will be my light.(C)
Because I have sinned against him,
I must endure the Lord’s fury
until he champions my cause(D)
and establishes justice for me.(E)
He will bring me into the light;(F)
I will see his salvation.[a](G)
10 Then my enemy will see,
and she will be covered with shame,
the one who said to me,
“Where is the Lord your God?” (H)
My eyes will look at her in triumph;
at that time she will be trampled
like mud in the streets.(I)

11 A day will come for rebuilding your walls;(J)
on that day your boundary will be extended.(K)
12 On that day people will come to you(L)
from Assyria and the cities of Egypt,
even from Egypt to the Euphrates River
and from sea to sea
and mountain to mountain.
