New King James Version
Joy in God’s Faithfulness
14 (A)Sing, O daughter of Zion!
Shout, O Israel!
Be glad and rejoice with all your heart,
O daughter of Jerusalem!
15 The Lord has taken away your judgments,
He has cast out your enemy.
(B)The King of Israel, the Lord, (C)is in your midst;
You shall [a]see disaster no more.
16 In that day (D)it shall be said to Jerusalem:
“Do not fear;
Zion, (E)let not your hands be weak.
17 The Lord your God (F)in your midst,
The Mighty One, will save;
(G)He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.”
18 “I will gather those who (H)sorrow over the appointed assembly,
Who are among you,
To whom its reproach is a burden.
- Zephaniah 3:15 So with Heb. mss., LXX, Bg.; MT, Vg. fear
