51:17 Wake up! Wake up!
Get up, O Jerusalem!
You drank from the cup the Lord passed to you,
which was full of his anger! 1
You drained dry
the goblet full of intoxicating wine. 2
“Look, I have removed from your hand
the cup of intoxicating wine, 4
the goblet full of my anger. 5
You will no longer have to drink it.
