Under the figure of the deliverance from the Babylonish captivity, the church is invited to rejoice for her redemption from sin. Christ's kingdom shall be exalted.
 Arise, arise, put on thy strength, O Sion, put on the garments of thy glory, O Jerusalem, the city of the Holy One: for henceforth the uncircumcised, and unclean shall no more pass through thee.
Consurge, consurge, induere fortitudini tua, Sion! induere vestimentis gloriae tuae, Jerusalem, civitas Sancti, quia non adjiciet ultra ut pertranseat per te incircumcisus et immundus.
 Shake thyself from the dust, arise, sit up, O Jerusalem: loose the bonds from off thy neck, O captive daughter of Sion.
Excutere de pulvere, consurge; sede, Jerusalem! Solve vincula colli tui, captiva filia Sion;
 For thus saith the Lord: You were sold gratis, and you shall be redeemed without money.
quia haec dicit Dominus : Gratis venundati estis, et sine argento redimemini.
 For thus saith the Lord God: My people went down into Egypt at the beginning to sojourn there: and the Assyrian hath oppressed them without any cause at all.
Quia haec dicit Dominus Deus : In Aegyptum descendit populus meus in principio, ut colonus esset ibi, et Assur absque ulla causa calumniatus est eum.
 And now what have I here, saith the Lord: for my people is taken away gratis. They that rule over them treat them unjustly, saith the Lord, and my name is continually blasphemed all the day long.
Et nunc quid mihi est hic, dicit Dominus, quoniam ablatus est populus meus gratis? Dominatores ejus inique agunt, dicit Dominus, et jugiter tota die nomen meum blasphematur.
 Therefore my people shall know my name in that day: for I myself that spoke, behold I am here.
Propter hoc sciet populus meus nomen meum in die illa : quia ego ipse qui loquebar, ecce adsum.
 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, and that preacheth peace: of him that sheweth forth good, that preacheth salvation, that saith to Sion: Thy God shall reign!
Quam pulchri super montes pedes annuntiantis et praedicantis pacem, annuntiantis bonum, praedicantis salutem, dicentis Sion : Regnabit Deus tuus!
 The voice of thy watchmen: they have lifted up their voice, they shall praise together: for they shall see eye to eye when the Lord shall convert Sion.
Vox speculatorum tuorum : levaverunt vocem, simul laudabunt, quia oculo ad oculum videbunt cum converterit Dominus Sion.
 Rejoice, and give praise together, O ye deserts of Jerusalem: for the Lord hath comforted his people: he hath redeemed Jerusalem.
Gaudete, et laudate simul, deserta Jerusalem, quia consolatus est Dominus populum suum, redemit Jerusalem.
 The Lord hath prepared his holy arm in the sight of all the Gentiles: and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.
Paravit Dominus brachium sanctum suum in oculis omnium gentium; et videbunt omnes fines terrae salutare Dei nostri.
 Depart, depart, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing: go out of the midst of her, be ye clean, you that carry the vessels of the Lord.
Recedite, recedite; exite inde, pollutum nolite tangere; exite de medio ejus; mundamini, qui fertis vasa Domini.
 For you shall not go out in a tumult, neither shall you make haste by flight: For the Lord will go before you, and the God of Israel will gather you together.
Quoniam non in tumultu exibitis, nec in fuga properabitis; praecedet enim vos Dominus, et congregabit vos Deus Israel.
 Behold my servant shall understand, he shall be exalted, and extolled, and shall be exceeding high.
Ecce intelliget servus meus, exaltabitur et elevabitur, et sublimis erit valde.
 As many have been astonished at thee, so shall his visage be inglorious among men, and his form among the sons of men.
Sicut obstupuerunt super te multi sic inglorius erit inter viros aspectus ejus, et forma ejus inter filios hominum,
 He shall sprinkle many nations, kings shall shut their mouth at him: for they to whom it was not told of him, have seen: and they that heard not, have beheld.
iste asperget gentes multas, super ipsum continebunt reges os suum : quia quibus non est narratum de eo viderunt, et qui non audierunt contemplati sunt.
