Isaiah 52

The Lord’s Coming Salvation
1 # ch. 51:17 Awake, awake,
put on your strength, O Zion;
# [Ex. 28:2, 40]; See Zech. 3:1-4 put on your beautiful garments,
O Jerusalem, #ch. 48:2; Neh. 11:1 the holy city;
# ch. 60:21; Joel 3:17; [ch. 35:8; Rev. 21:27] for there shall no more come into you
the uncircumcised and the unclean.
2 # [ch. 51:23] Shake yourself from the dust and arise;
be seated, O Jerusalem;
# ch. 51:14 loose the bonds from your neck,
O captive daughter of Zion.
3For thus says the Lord: #ch. 45:13; 50:1 “You were sold for nothing, and #[1 Pet. 1:18]you shall be redeemed without money.” 4For thus says the Lord God: #Gen. 46:6“My people went down at the first into Egypt to sojourn there, and the Assyrian oppressed them for nothing.#52:4 Or the Assyrian has oppressed them of late 5Now therefore what have I here,” declares the Lord, “seeing that my people are taken away for nothing? Their rulers wail,” declares the Lord, “and #Cited Rom. 2:24; [Ezek. 36:20, 23]continually all the day my name is despised. 6Therefore my people shall know my name. #[ch. 49:26]Therefore in that day they shall know that it is I who speak; here I am.”
7 # Nah. 1:15; Cited Rom. 10:15 How beautiful upon the mountains
are the feet of him who brings good news,
who publishes peace, #ch. 40:9who brings good news of happiness,
who publishes salvation,
who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.”
8The voice of #See ch. 62:6 your watchmen—they lift up their voice;
together they sing for joy;
# [ch. 33:17, 22; 1 Cor. 13:12; 1 John 3:2; Rev. 22:4] for eye to eye they see
the return of the Lord to Zion.
9 # Ps. 98:4 Break forth together into singing,
# ch. 58:12 you waste places of Jerusalem,
for #ch. 40:1; 51:3, 12the Lord has comforted his people;
he has redeemed Jerusalem.
10 # See ch. 51:9 The Lord has bared his holy arm
before the eyes of all the nations,
# Ps. 98:3; [Luke 3:6] and all the ends of the earth shall see
the salvation of our God.
11 # ch. 48:20; Jer. 50:8; 51:6, 45; Zech. 2:6, 7; Cited 2 Cor. 6:17; [Rev. 18:4] Depart, depart, go out from there;
touch no unclean thing;
go out from the midst of her; purify yourselves,
# See Ezra 1:7-11 you who bear the vessels of the Lord.
12For you shall not #[Ex. 12:11, 33, 39] go out in haste,
and you shall not go in flight,
# Mic. 2:13; [Ex. 14:19] for the Lord will go before you,
# [ch. 58:8] and the God of Israel will be your rear guard.
He Was Pierced for Our Transgressions
13Behold, #See ch. 42:1my servant shall act wisely;#52:13 Or shall prosper
he shall be high and lifted up,
and shall be exalted.
14As many were astonished at you—
# [ch. 53:2, 3] his appearance was so marred, beyond human semblance,
and his form beyond that of the children of mankind—
15so #Lev. 4:6, 17 shall he sprinkle#52:15 Or startle many nations.
# ch. 49:7, 23 Kings shall shut their mouths because of him,
# Cited Rom. 15:21; [Rom. 16:25] for that which has not been told them they see,
and that which they have not heard they understand.
