By Isaiah

(Hebrew prophet, B.C. 740)
FOR Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace,
And for Jerusalem’s sake will I not rest,
Until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness,
And the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.
Upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, have I set watchmen,        5
Who shall never hold their peace, day and night.
Go through, go through the gates;
Prepare ye the way of the people!
Lift up a standard to the peoples!
