Isaiah 51:17–23

17  hAwake, awake, stand up, O Jerusalem,

iWhich hast drunk at the hand of the Lord kthe cup of his fury;

lThou hast drunken kthe dregs of mthe cup of trembling, and lwrung them out.

18  nThere is none to guide her among all the sons whom she hath brought forth;

Neither is there any that taketh her by the hand of all the sons that she hath brought up.

19  oThese two things are come unto thee; who shall be psorry for thee?

Desolation, and destruction, and the famine, and the sword:

qBy whom shall I pcomfort thee?

20  qqThy sons have fainted, they lie at the head of all the streets, as ra wild bull sin a net:

They are full of the fury of the Lord, the rebuke of thy God.

21  Therefore thear now this, ttthou afflicted,

And kudrunken, but not with wine:

22  Thus saith vthy Lord the Lord,

And thy God that wpleadeth the cause of his people,

Behold, I have taken out of thine hand kthe cup of mtrembling,

Even kthe dregs of the cup of my fury;

Thou shalt no more drink it again:

23  But xI will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee;

yWhich have said to thy soul, Bow down, that we may go over:

And zthou hast laid thy body as the ground,

And as the street, to them that went over.
