Isaiah 52:11-12

11-12Out of here! Out of here! Leave this place!

Don't look back. Don't contaminate yourselves with plunder.

Just leave, but leave clean. Purify yourselves

in the process of worship, carrying the holy vessels of God.

But you don't have to be in a hurry.

You're not running from anybody!

God is leading you out of here,

and the God of Israel is also your rear guard.

It Was Our Pains He Carried

13-15"Just watch my servant blossom!

Exalted, tall, head and shoulders above the crowd!

But he didn't begin that way.

At first everyone was appalled.

He didn't even look human—

a ruined face, disfigured past recognition.

Nations all over the world will be in awe, taken aback,

kings shocked into silence when they see him.

For what was unheard of they'll see with their own eyes,

what was unthinkable they'll have right before them."
