A Song of Joy
Sing aloud, O daughter Zion; shout, O Israel!Rejoice and exult with all your heart, O daughter Jerusalem!15
has taken away the judgements against you, he has turned away your enemies.The king of Israel, the Lord
, is in your midst; you shall fear disaster no more.16
On that day it shall be said to Jerusalem:Do not fear, O Zion; do not let your hands grow weak.17
, your God, is in your midst, a warrior who gives victory;he will rejoice over you with gladness, he will renew you in his love;he will exult over you with loud singing18
as on a day of festival. I will remove disaster from you, so that you will not bear reproach for it.19
I will deal with all your oppressors at that time.And I will save the lame and gather the outcast,and I will change their shame into praise and renown in all the earth.
