Isaiah 52:7–12

M V S
G

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of the messenger of good tidings, that announceth peace, the harbinger of good tidings, that announceth salvation; that saith unto Zion: 'Thy God reigneth!'

as a season of beauty upon the mountains, as the feet of one preaching glad tidings of peace, as one preaching good news: for I will publish thy salvation, saying, O Sion, thy God shall reign.

M
G V S

Hark, thy watchmen! they lift up the voice, together do they sing; for they shall see, eye to eye, YHWH returning to Zion.

For the voice of them that guard thee is exalted, and with the voice together they shall rejoice: for eyes shall look to eyes, when the Lord shall have mercy upon Sion.

M S

Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem; for YHWH hath comforted His people, He hath redeemed Jerusalem.

Let the waste places of Jerusalem break forth in joy together, because the Lord has had mercy upon her, and has delivered Jerusalem.

Be glad and rejoice together, O deserts of Jerusalem! For the Lord has consoled his people. He has redeemed Jerusalem.

10  YHWH hath made bare His holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.

10  And the Lord shall reveal his holy arm in the sight of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation that comes from our God.

10  The Lord has prepared his holy arm, in the sight of all the Gentiles. And all the ends of the earth will see the salvation of our God.

11  Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, ye that bear the vessels of YHWH.

11  Depart, depart, get out of here! Do not be willing to touch what is polluted. Go out from her midst! Be cleansed, you who bear the vessels of the Lord.

12  For ye shall not go out in haste, neither shall ye go by flight; for YHWH will go before you, and the God of Israel will be your rearward.

12  For you will not go out in a tumult, nor will you take flight in a hurry. For the Lord will precede you, and the God of Israel will gather you.

12  For you shall not go out with haste nor go by flight; for the LORD will go before you; and the God of Israel will gather you together.
