9 ¶ O aZion, that bringest bgood ctidings, get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of dJudah, Behold your God!
1 Who is this that acometh from bEdom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.
4 For thou hast been a strength to the apoor, a strength to the needy in his bdistress, a crefuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall.
4 Then I said, I have laboured in vain, I have spent my strength for nought, and in vain: yet surely my judgment is with the Lord, and my work with my God.
