You will also be [considered] a crown of glory and splendor in the hand of the Lord,
And a royal [a]diadem [exceedingly beautiful] in the hand of your God.
It will no longer be said of you [Judah], “Azubah (Abandoned),”
Nor will it any longer be said of your land, “Shemamah (Desolate)”;
But you will be called, “Hephzibah (My Delight is in Her),”
And your land, “[b]Married”;
For the Lord delights in you,
And to Him your land will be married [owned and protected by the Lord].
For as a young man marries a virgin [O Jerusalem],
[c]So your sons will marry you;
And as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
So your God will rejoice over you.
