8In that day shall the 9branch of the LORD 10be beautiful and glorious, and 11the fruit of the earth shall be 12excellent and comely 13for them that are escaped of Israel.
And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remaineth in Jerusalem, 14shall be called holy, even every one 15that is written 16among the living in Jerusalem:
When the Lord shall have washed away 17the filth 18of the daughters of Zion, and 19shall have purged 20the blood 21of Jerusalem 22from the midst thereof 23by the spirit of judgment, and 24by the spirit of burning.
And the LORD will 25create 26upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a 27cloud and 28smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all 29the glory shall be a defence.
And 30there shall be a tabernacle 31for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from 32storm and from rain.
