3:14 Shout for joy, Daughter Zion! 1 

Shout out, Israel!

Be happy and boast with all your heart, Daughter Jerusalem!

3:15 The Lord has removed the judgment against you; 2 

he has turned back your enemy.

Israel’s king, the Lord, is in your midst!

You no longer need to fear disaster.

3:16 On that day they will say 3  to Jerusalem,

Don’t be afraid, Zion!

Your hands must not be paralyzed from panic! 4 

3:17 The Lord your God is in your midst;

he is a warrior who can deliver.

He takes great delight in you; 5 

he renews you by his love; 6 

he shouts for joy over you.” 7
