Their children after them will be famous among the nations.
    Their families will be praised by people everywhere.
All those who see them will agree
    that I have blessed them.”

10 The people of Jerusalem will say,
    “We take great delight in the Lord.
    We are joyful because we belong to our God.
He has dressed us with salvation as if it were our clothes.
    He has put robes of godliness on us.
We are like a groom who is dressed up for his wedding.
    We are like a bride who decorates herself with her jewels.
11 The soil makes the young plant come up.
    A garden causes seeds to grow.
In the same way, the Lord and King will make godliness grow.
    And all the nations will praise him.”

10 I delight greatly in the Lord;
    my soul rejoices(C) in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
    and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,(D)
as a bridegroom adorns his head(E) like a priest,
    and as a bride(F) adorns herself with her jewels.
11 For as the soil makes the sprout come up
    and a garden(G) causes seeds to grow,
so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness(H)
    and praise spring up before all nations.
