14 Shout for joy, O daughter of Zion!

aShout in triumph, O Israel!

Rejoice and exult with all your heart,

O daughter of Jerusalem!

15 The Lord has taken away aHis judgments against you,

He has cleared away your enemies.

The King of Israel, the Lord, is bin your midst;

You will cfear disaster no more.

16 aIn that day it will be said to Jerusalem:

bDo not be afraid, O Zion;

cDo not let your hands fall limp.

17 “The Lord your God is ain your midst,

A 1bvictorious warrior.

He will cexult over you with joy,

He will 2be quiet in His love,

He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.

18 “I will gather those who agrieve about the appointed feasts—

They 1came from you, O Zion;

The reproach of exile is a burden on 2them.

19 “Behold, I am going to deal at that time

With all your aoppressors,

I will save the blame

And gather the outcast,

And I will turn their cshame into dpraise and renown

In all the earth.

20 “At that time I will abring you in,

Even at the time when I gather you together;

Indeed, I will give you brenown and praise

Among all the peoples of the earth,

When I crestore your fortunes before your eyes,”

Says the Lord.
