Zion’s Glory and New Name1 For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent,
And for Jerusalem’s sake I will not keep quiet,
Until her a righteousness goes forth like brightness,
And her b salvation like a torch that is burning.
2 The c nations will see your righteousness,
And all kings your glory;
And you will be called by a new d name
Which the mouth of the Lord will designate.
3 You will also be a e crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord,
And a royal ▼
▼ Lit turbandiadem in the hand of your God.
4 It will no longer be said to you, ▼
▼ I.e. Azubah, h “Forsaken,”
Nor to your land will it any longer be said ▼
▼ I.e. Shemamah“Desolate”;
But you will be called ▼
▼ I.e. Hephzibah“My delight is in her,”
And your land ▼
▼ I.e. Beulah, l “Married”;
For the m Lord delights in you,
And to Him your land will be married.
5 For as a young man marries a virgin,
So your sons will marry you;
And as the ▼
▼ Lit exultation of the bridegroombridegroom rejoices over the bride,
So your o God will rejoice over you.
6 On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed p watchmen;
All day and all night they will never keep silent.
You who q remind the Lord, take no rest for yourselves;
7 And r give Him no rest until He establishes
And makes s Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
8 t The Lord has sworn by His right hand and by His strong arm,
“I will u never again give your grain as food for your enemies;
Nor will ▼
▼ Lit sons of foreignersforeigners drink your new wine for which you have labored.”
9 But those who w garner it will eat it and praise the Lord;
And those who gather it will drink it in the courts of My sanctuary.
10 Go through x go through the gates,
Clear the way ▼
▼ Lit offor the people;
z Build up, build up the aa highway,
Remove the stones, lift up a ab standard over the peoples.
11 Behold, the Lord has proclaimed to the ac end of the earth,
ad Say to the daughter of Zion, “Lo, your ae salvation comes;
af Behold His reward is with Him, and His recompense before Him.”
12 And they will call them, ag “The holy people,
The ah redeemed of the Lord”;
And you will be called, “Sought out, a city ai not forsaken.”
