14 Sing aloud, O daughter Zion;
shout, O Israel!
Rejoice and exult with all your heart,
O daughter Jerusalem!
he has turned away your enemies.
The king of Israel, the Lord, is in your midst;
you shall fear disaster no more.
Do not fear, O Zion;
do not let your hands grow weak.
a warrior who gives victory;
he will rejoice over you with gladness,
he will renew youd in his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing
18 as on a day of festival.e
I will remove disaster from you,f
so that you will not bear reproach for it.
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.
at the time when I gather you;
for I will make you renowned and praised
among all the peoples of the earth,
when I restore your fortunes
before your eyes, says the Lord.
