Zion’s Coming Salvation1 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.
3 You 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.
5 For 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,
7 and give him no rest
until he establishes Jerusalem
and makes it q a praise in the earth.
8 The 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;
9 but 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.
11 Behold, 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.
