Isaiah

God will rescue Jerusalem.  Is.52.1-12

1Awake, awake,
put on your strength, O Zion;
put on your beautiful garments,
O Jerusalem, the holy city;
for there shall no more come into you
the uncircumcised and the unclean.
2Shake yourself from the dust, arise,
O captive Jerusalem;
loose the bonds from your neck,
O captive daughter of Zion.

3For thus says Yahweh: "You were sold for nothing, and you shall be redeemed without money. 4For thus says the Lord Yahweh: My people went down at the first into Egypt to sojourn there, and the Assyrian oppressed them for nothing. 5Now therefore what have I here, says Yahweh, seeing that my people are taken away for nothing? Their rulers wail, says Yahweh, and continually all the day my name is despised. 6Therefore my people shall know my name; therefore in that day they shall know that it is I who speak; here am I."

7How beautiful upon the mountains
are the feet of him who brings good tidings,
who publishes peace, who brings good tidings of good,
who publishes salvation,
who says to Zion, "Your God reigns."
8Hark, your watchmen lift up their voice,
together they sing for joy;
for eye to eye they see
the return of Yahweh to Zion.
9Break forth together into singing,
you waste places of Jerusalem;
for Yahweh has comforted his people,
he has redeemed Jerusalem.
10Yahweh has bared his holy arm
before the eyes of all the nations;
and all the ends of the earth
shall see the salvation of our God.

11Depart, depart, go out thence,
touch no unclean thing;
go out from the midst of her, purify yourselves,
you who bear the vessels of Yahweh.
12For you shall not go out in haste,
and you shall not go in flight,
for Yahweh will go before you,
and the God of Israel will be your rear guard.

The suffering servant.  Is.52.13-53.12

13Behold, my servant shall prosper,
he shall be exalted and lifted up,
and shall be very high.
14As many were astonished at him -
his appearance was so marred, beyond human semblance,
and his form beyond that of the sons of men -
15so shall he startle many nations;
kings shall shut their mouths because of him;
for that which has not been told them they shall see,
and that which they have not heard they shall understand.

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
This page displays the katapi New Standard Bible as flowing text.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have used the name 'Yahweh'.
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.
