Isaiah 4

 1  In that day so few men will be left that seven women will fight for each man, saying, "Let us all marry you! We will provide our own food and clothing. Only let us take your name so we won't be mocked as old maids."

A Promise of Restoration
 2  But in that day, the branch [2]  of the LORD
  will be beautiful and glorious;
the fruit of the land will be the pride and glory
  of all who survive in Israel.
 3  All who remain in Zion
  will be a holy people—
those who survive the destruction of Jerusalem
  and are recorded among the living.
 4  The Lord will wash the filth from beautiful Zion [4] 
  and cleanse Jerusalem of its bloodstains
  with the hot breath of fiery judgment.
 5  Then the LORD will provide shade for Mount Zion
  and all who assemble there.
He will provide a canopy of cloud during the day
  and smoke and flaming fire at night,
  covering the glorious land.
 6  It will be a shelter from daytime heat
  and a hiding place from storms and rain.
<<  4:2 Or the Branch.
<<  4:4 Or from the women of Zion; Hebrew reads from the daughters of Zion.
