Isaiah 12 English Standard Version

The LORD to Be Praised in That Day

12 1  You[1] will say in that day: "I will give thanks to you, O Lord, for though you were angry with me, your anger turned away, that you might comfort me. 2  "Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the Lord GOD[2] is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation." 3  With joy you[3] will draw water from the wells of salvation.

4  And you will say in that day: "Give thanks to the Lord, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the peoples, proclaim that his name is exalted. 5  "Sing praises to the Lord, for he has done gloriously; let this be made known[4] in all the earth. 6  Shout, and sing for joy, O inhabitant of Zion, for great in your[5] midst is the Holy One of Israel."
