(A)Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness[a] be known to everyone. (B)The Lord is at hand; (C)do not be anxious about anything, (D)but in everything by prayer and supplication (E)with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And (F)the peace of God, (G)which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Israel's Joy and Restoration

14 (A)Sing aloud, O daughter of Zion;
    shout, O Israel!
Rejoice and exult with all your heart,
    O daughter of Jerusalem!
15 The Lord has taken away the judgments against you;
    he has cleared away your enemies.
(B)The King of Israel, (C)the Lord, is in your midst;
    you shall never again fear evil.
16 (D)On that day it shall be said to Jerusalem:
“Fear not, O Zion;
    (E)let not your hands grow weak.
17 (F)The Lord your God is in your midst,
    (G)a mighty one who will save;
(H)he will rejoice over you with gladness;
    he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.
18 I will gather those of you who mourn (I)for the festival,
    so that you will no longer suffer reproach.[a]
