|For Zion's sake I will not keep silent, |
and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest,
until her vindication goes forth as brightness,
and her salvation as a burning torch.
|The nations shall see your vindication, |
and all the kings your glory;
and you shall be called by a new name
which the mouth of the LORD will give.
|You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the LORD, |
and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
|You shall no more be termed Forsaken, |
and your land shall no more be termed Desolate;
but you shall be called My delight is in her,
and your land Married;
for the LORD delights in you,
and your land shall be married.
|For as a young man marries a virgin, |
so shall your sons marry you,
and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
so shall your God rejoice over you.
|Upon your walls, O Jerusalem, |
I have set watchmen;
all the day and all the night
they shall never be silent.
You who put the LORD in remembrance,
take no rest,
|and give him no rest |
until he establishes Jerusalem
and makes it a praise in the earth.
|The LORD has sworn by his right hand |
and by his mighty arm:
"I will not again give your grain
to be food for your enemies,
and foreigners shall not drink your wine
for which you have labored;
|but those who garner it shall eat it |
and praise the LORD,
and those who gather it shall drink it
in the courts of my sanctuary."
|Go through, go through the gates, |
prepare the way for the people;
build up, build up the highway,
clear it of stones,
lift up an ensign over the peoples.
|Behold, the LORD has proclaimed |
to the end of the earth:
Say to the daughter of Zion,
"Behold, your salvation comes;
behold, his reward is with him,
and his recompense before him."
|And they shall be called The holy people, |
The redeemed of the LORD;
and you shall be called Sought out,
a city not forsaken.
