Isaiah 52, I hope you enjoy reading this Book of Isaiah. But before we get right into Isaiah 52 let us give homage to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and after doing this we can read Book of Isaiah.
The Word Became Flesh The Deity of Jesus Christ
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it .
Colossians 1: 15 The Supremacy of the Son of God
15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.
Mark 15:33-38 The Death of Jesus
33 At noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon. 34 And at three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).[a]
35 When some of those standing near heard this, they said, “Listen, he’s calling Elijah.”
36 Someone ran, filled a sponge with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to take him down,” he said.
37 With a loud cry, Jesus breathed his last.
38 The curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.
1 Peter 1:3
[ Praise to God for a Living Hope ] Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
1 Peter 1:2-4 (in Context) 1 Peter 1 (Whole Chapter) Other Translations
New International Reader’s Version (NIRV)
52 Wake up! Zion, wake up!
Dress yourself with strength as if it were your clothes.
Holy city of Jerusalem,
put on your clothes of glory.
Those who haven’t been circumcised will never enter you again.
Neither will those who are “unclean.”
2 Get up, Jerusalem! Shake off your dust.
Take your place on your throne.
Captured people of Zion,
remove the chains from your neck.
3 The Lord says,
“When you were sold as slaves, no one paid anything for you.
Now no one will pay any money to set you free.”
4 The Lord and King continues,
“Long ago my people went down to Egypt.
They lived there for a while.
Later, Assyria crushed them without any reason.
5 “Now look at what has happened to them,” announces the Lord.
“Once again my people have been taken away.
And no one paid anything for them.
Those who rule over them brag about it,”
announces the Lord.
“All day long without stopping,
people speak evil things against my name.
6 So the day will come when my people will really know the meaning of my name.
They will know what kind of God I am.
They will know that I told them ahead of time they would return to their land.
They will know that it was I.”
7 What a beautiful sight it is
to see messengers coming with good news!
How beautiful to see them coming down from the mountains
with a message about peace!
How wonderful it is when they bring the good news
that we are saved!
How wonderful when they say to Zion,
“Your God rules!”
8 Listen! Those on guard duty are shouting out the message.
With their own eyes
they see the Lord returning to Zion.
So they shout with joy.
9 Burst into songs of joy together,
you broken-down buildings in Jerusalem.
The Lord has comforted his people.
He has set Jerusalem free.
10 The Lord will use the power of his holy arm to save his people.
All of the nations will see him do it.
Everyone from one end of the earth to the other will see it.
11 You who carry the articles that belong to the Lord’s temple, leave Babylon!
Leave it! Get out of there!
Don’t touch anything that isn’t pure and clean.
Come out of Babylon and be pure.
12 But this time you won’t have to leave in a hurry.
You won’t have to rush away.
The Lord will go ahead of you and lead you.
The God of Israel will follow behind you and guard you.
The Suffering and Glory of the Lord’s Servant
13 The Lord says, “My servant will act wisely and accomplish his task.
He will be highly honored. He will be greatly respected.
14 Many people were shocked when they saw him.
He was so scarred that he did not look like a man at all.
His body was so twisted that he did not look like a human being anymore.
15 But many nations will be surprised when they see what he has done.
Kings will be so amazed that they will not be able to say anything.
They will understand things they were never told about.
They will know the meaning of things they never heard about.”
