Isaiah 62

Zion’s Coming Salvation

1 a  For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent,
and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not be quiet,
b  until her righteousness goes forth as brightness,
and her salvation as a burning torch.
2 c  The nations shall see your righteousness,
and all the kings your glory,
d  and you shall be called by a new name
that the mouth of the  Lord will give.
3You shall be e  a crown of beauty in the hand of the  Lord,
and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
4 f  You shall no more be termed g  Forsaken
Hebrew Azubah

and your land shall no more be termed Desolate
Hebrew Shemamah

j  but you shall be called k  My Delight Is in Her
Hebrew Hephzibah

and your land Married;
Hebrew Beulah

for the  Lord delights in you,
and your land shall be married.
5For as a young man marries a young woman,
so n  shall your sons marry you,
and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
so o  shall your God rejoice over you.
6 On your walls, O Jerusalem,
I have set p  watchmen;
all the day and all the night
they shall never be silent.
You who put the  Lord in remembrance,
take no rest,
7and give him no rest
until he establishes Jerusalem
and makes it q  a praise in the earth.
8The  Lord has sworn r  by his right hand
and by his mighty arm:
“I will not again give s  your grain
to be food for your enemies,
t  and foreigners shall not drink your wine
for which you have labored;
9but u  those who garner it shall eat it
and praise the  Lord,
and v  those who gather it shall drink it
in the courts of my sanctuary.”
Or  in my holy courts

10 Go through, go through the gates;
x  prepare the way for the people;
y  build up, build up the highway;
clear it of stones;
z  lift up a signal over the peoples.
11Behold, the  Lord has proclaimed
to the end of the earth:
aa  Say to the daughter of Zion,
ab  Behold, your salvation comes;
behold, his reward is with him,
and his recompense before him.”
12 ac  And they shall be called The Holy People,
The Redeemed of the  Lord;
ad  and you shall be called Sought Out,
A City Not Forsaken.
