Understanding Isaiah

After years and years of not understanding, I FINALLY get an Isaiah verse!  It's Isaiah's version of a wiggle song!  In the middle of all of that stuff that I can't quite grasp, it's time to stand up and get the wiggles out, so maybe I'll have a better chance of understanding what is to follow.  See look: 

 Book of Mormon, 3 Nephi 20:37: 

"Shake thyself from the dust; arise, sit down, O Jerusalem; loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion."

compare to

"Oh, How We Love to Stand," page 279 in the Children's Song Book:

"Oh how we love to stand
And turn ourselves around
Shake the left and shake the right,
But best of all sit down"

(I'm so going to the bad place!)
