The “Beautiful and Glorious” Lord’s Branch (4:2–6)


2In that day the Branch of the LORD will be beautiful and glorious,
and the fruit of the earth will be majestic and glorious
to them that are escaped of Israel.

3And it will come to pass, whoever is left in Zion,
and whoever remains in Jerusalem, will be called “Holy,”[1]
everyone that is written for life in Jerusalem.

4The Lord will wash away the filth[2] of the daughters of Zion,
and cleanse the blood from Jerusalem

by the spirit of judgment
and by the spirit of burning.

5And the LORD will create over the sanctuary of Mount Zion,
and over her solemn assemblies,

a cloud by day
and smoke and the brightness of a flaming fire by night;

for over all the glory [of Zion][3] will be a canopy.
6It will be as a booth for shade by day from the heat

and for a place of refuge
and for a shelter from the storm and from the rain.

[1] In the Hebrew (qdsh), holy is sometimes connected to the temple, its ordinances, and God’s covenant.

[2] The Hebrew word tzo’oh, translated “filth,” literally means “excrement” or “dung.”

[3] From JST and 2 Nephi 14:5.
