Israel's Joy and Restoration

Zephaniah 3

14 s Sing, O daughter of Zion!
Shout, O Israel!
Be glad and rejoice with all your heart,
O daughter of Jerusalem!
15 The LORD has taken away your judgments,
He has cast out your enemy.
t The King of Israel, the LORD, u is in your midst;
You shall 1 see disaster no more.
16 In that day v it shall be said to Jerusalem:
"Do not fear;
Zion, w let not your hands be weak.
17 The LORD your God x in your midst,
The Mighty One, will save;
y He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing."
18 "I will gather those who z sorrow over the appointed assembly,
Who are among you,
To whom its reproach is a burden.
19 Behold, at that time
I will deal with all who afflict you;
I will save the a lame,
And gather those who were driven out;
I will appoint them for praise and fame
In every land where they were put to shame.
20 At that time b I will bring you back,
Even at the time I gather you;
For I will give you 2 fame and praise
Among all the peoples of the earth,
When I return your captives before your eyes,"
Says the LORD.
