16 On that day it will be said to Jerusalem:
“Do not fear;
Zion, do not let your hands grow weak.(A)
17 Yahweh your God is among you,
a warrior(B) who saves.
He will rejoice over you(C) with gladness.
He will bring you quietness[a] with His love.
He will delight in you with shouts of joy.”(D)

18 I will gather those who have been driven(E)
from the appointed festivals;
they will be a tribute from you[b]
and a reproach on her.[c]
