The “Beautiful and Glorious” Lord’s Branch (4:2–6)
2In that day the Branch of the LORD will be beautiful and glorious,
3And it will come to pass, whoever is left in Zion,
4The Lord will wash away the filth of the daughters of Zion,
by the spirit of judgment
5And the LORD will create over the sanctuary of Mount Zion,
a cloud by day
for over all the glory [of Zion] will be a canopy.
and for a place of refuge
 In the Hebrew (qdsh), holy is sometimes connected to the temple, its ordinances, and God’s covenant.
 The Hebrew word tzo’oh, translated “filth,” literally means “excrement” or “dung.”
 From JST and 2 Nephi 14:5.
