16 (A)In that day it will be said to Jerusalem:
(B)Do not be afraid, O Zion;
(C)Do not let your hands fall limp.
17 “The Lord your God is (D)in your midst,
A [a](E)victorious warrior.
He will (F)exult over you with joy,
He will [b]be quiet in His love,
He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.
18 “I will gather those who (G)grieve about the appointed feasts—
They [c]came from you, O Zion;
The reproach of exile is a burden on [d]them.
