Two Hymns of Salvation (12:1–6)


12 1And in that day you will say,


“O  Lord, I will praise You.
Though You were angry with me,
Your anger is turned away,
and You comfort me.
2Behold, God is my salvation;
I will trust, and not be afraid,
for the LORD, the LORD is my strength and my song;
He has become my salvation.
3With joy you will draw water out of the springs of salvation.”


4And in that day will you say,


“Give praise to the LORD,
call upon His name,

make known His deeds among the people,
call to remembrance that His name is exalted.

5Sing unto the LORD, for He has done glorious things—
let this be known in all the earth.

6Cry out[1] and sing gladly, O inhabitant of Zion,
for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.”

[1] The terms “cry out,” “sing gladly,” and “inhabitant” are feminine forms in the Hebrew, which means that the final two lines of the second song are directed to a female (possibly referring to the Lord’s bride, or Zion?).
