NEW WORLD TRANSLATION OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES (2013 REVISION)

Isaiah 4:1-6

OUTLINE OF CONTENTS

  • Seven women to one man (1)

  • What Jehovah makes sprout will be glorious (2-6)

4  And seven women will grab hold of one man in that day,+ saying: “We will eat our own bread And wear our own clothing; Only let us be called by your name To take away our disgrace.”*+  In that day what Jehovah makes sprout will be splendid and glorious, and the fruitage of the land will be the pride and beauty of the survivors of Israel.+  Whoever remains in Zion and is left over in Jerusalem will be called holy, all of those in Jerusalem written down for life.+  When Jehovah washes away the filth* of the daughters of Zion+ and rinses away the bloodshed of Jerusalem from her midst by the spirit of judgment and by a spirit of burning,*+  Jehovah will also create over the whole site of Mount Zion and over the place of her conventions a cloud and smoke by day and a bright flaming fire by night;+ for over all the glory there will be a shelter.  And there will be a booth for shade by day from the heat,+ and for refuge and protection from storms and the rain.+
