Baruch - 5


1Jerusalem, take off your dress of sorrow and distress, put on the beauty of God's glory for evermore, 2wrap the cloak of God's saving justice around you, put the diadem of the Eternal One's glory on yourhead, 3for God means to show your splendour to every nation under heaven, 4and the name God gives you for evermore wil be, 'Peace-through-Justice, and Glory-through-Devotion'. 5Arise, Jerusalem, stand on the heights and turn your eyes to the east: see your children reassembledfrom west and east at the Holy One's command, rejoicing because God has remembered. 6Though they left you on foot driven by enemies, now God brings them back to you, carried gloriously,like a royal throne. 7For God has decreed the flattening of each high mountain, of the everlasting hills, the fil ing of theval eys to make the ground level so that Israel can walk safely in God's glory. 8And the forests and every fragrant tree wil provide shade for Israel, at God's command; 9for God wil guide Israel in joy by the light of his glory, with the mercy and saving justice which comefrom him.
