Text Commentary

1Jerusalem, take off your robe of mourning and misery; put on the splendor of glory from God forever: q Is 52, 1 . 2Wrapped in the cloak of justice from God, bear on your head the mitre that displays the glory of the eternal name. r Ex 39, 30; Wis 18, 24; Is 61. 10; 62, 3 . 3For God will show all the earth your splendor: 4you will be named by God forever the peace of justice, the glory of God's worship. s Is 1, 26; 32, 17; Jer 33, 16 .

5Up, Jerusalem! stand upon the heights; look to the east and see your children Gathered from the east and the west at the word of the Holy One, rejoicing that they are remembered by God. 6Led away on foot by their enemies they left you: but God will bring them back to you borne aloft in glory as on royal thrones. t Is 49, 22 . 7For God has commanded that every lofty mountain be made low, And that the age‐old depths and gorges be filled to level ground, that Israel may advance secure in the glory of God. u Is 40, 3f . 8The forests and every fragrant kind of tree have overshadowed Israel at God's command; v Is 41, 19 . 9For God is leading Israel in joy by the light of his glory, with his mercy and justice for company.
