4 And seven women will actually grab hold of one man in that day,+ saying: “We shall eat our own bread and wear our own mantles; only may we be called by your name* to take away our reproach.”+ 2 In that day what Jehovah makes sprout*+ will come to be for decoration and for glory,+ and the fruitage of the land* will be something to be proud of+ and something beautiful for those of Israel who have escaped.*+ 3 And it must occur that the ones remaining* in Zion and the ones left over* in Jerusalem will be said to be holy to him,+ everyone written down for life in Jerusalem.+ 4 When Jehovah* will have washed away the excrement of the daughters of Zion+ and he will rinse+ away even the bloodshed*+ of Jerusalem from within her by the spirit of judgment and by the spirit of burning down,+ 5 Jehovah will also certainly create over every established place of Mount Zion+ and over her convention place a cloud by day and a smoke, and the brightness of a flaming fire+ by night;+ because over all the glory there will be a shelter.+ 6 And there will come to be a booth for a shade by day from the dry heat,+ and for a refuge and for a hiding place from the rainstorm and from the precipitation.+
