1 Wake up! Wake up! Clothe yourself with strength, O Zion! Put on your beautiful clothes, O Jerusalem, holy city. For uncircumcised and unclean pagans will no longer invade you. 2 Shake off the dirt! Get up, captive Jerusalem. Take off the iron chains around your neck, O captive daughter Zion. 3 For this is what the Lord says: “You were sold for nothing, and you will not be redeemed for money.” 4 For this is what the Sovereign Lord says: “In the beginning my people went to live temporarily in Egypt; Assyria oppressed them for no good reason.
Psalms of Solomon 11:7
5 The woods shaded them as they passed by; God made every fragrant tree to spring up for them 6 that Israel might pass by in the watchful care of the glory of their God. 7 O Jerusalem, put on your glorious clothes, prepare your holy robes, because God has pronounced blessings on Israel forever and ever. 8 May the Lord do to Israel and Jerusalem the things that he has spoken; may the Lord lift up Israel by his glorious name. 9 May the mercy of the Lord be upon Israel forevermore.
