The Coming of God to Reign

10 “Pass through[a] the gates!
    prepare the way for the people!
Build up! Build up the highway!
    Clear it of stumbling stones,[b]
        speak among the peoples.[c]
11 Here is the Lord!
    Proclaim[d] to the ends[e] of the earth,
say to the inhabitants[f] of Zion:
    ‘See, your salvation is coming!
See, his reward is with him,
    and his recompenses are[g] before him.’
12 People will call them, ‘The Holy People,’
    ‘The Redeemed of the Lord’;
and they will call you,[h] ‘Sought After,’
    ‘The City Not Deserted.’”
