1 And in that day, [when Zion is established] seven women [the perfected saints] shall take hold of one man [shall wrest the power from previous authority], saying: We will eat our own bread [we have our own priesthood (relationship) from the Lord], and wear our own apparel [our own authority from Him]; only let us [we shall] be called [of God] by thy name [in thy place] to take away our reproach. [God’s condemnation upon the people]
For many, this scripture is a polygamous prophecy. This is not the meaning behind Isaiah’s use of this symbolic imagery. The word “seven” denotes perfection, particularly of those who are prepared for a terrestrial glory. The word “women” is used in this scripture to denote one who is preparing to know the Lord. Isaiah’s use of this word is to imply that they come from those not having priestly authority, which in the last days will be both men and women, and not from any authority of “man.” Verse 1 above is similar in meaning to 2 Nephi 13:1-12.
2 In that day shall the branch [The extended House of Israel – New Jerusalem] of the Lord be beautiful and glorious; the fruit of the earth [Those gathered unto it] excellent and comely [desirable] to them that are escaped of Israel. [those of the House of Israel that escape the destructions and are gathered unto it]
3 And it shall come to pass, they that are left [reside] in Zion and remain in Jerusalem shall be called holy, every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem— [These shall have the mark of God upon them.]
4 When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion [removed the wicked from among the church], and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof [made them holy, even their very DNA] by the spirit of judgment [Gift of the Holy Ghost] and by the spirit of burning. [Baptism of Fire]
The “daughters of Zion” is always a reference to a later generation of God’s covenant people that have gone astray. See Moroni 10:31
5 And the Lord will create upon every dwelling-place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night [the Shekinah, or glory of God’s protection]; for upon all the glory of Zion shall be a defence.
6 And there shall be a tabernacle [covering] for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and a covert from storm and from rain. [God will shield His people from the destruction which will cover the earth before His coming.]
