You will be like a beautiful crown that the Lord holds up,
    like a king’s crown in the hand of your God.
You will never again be called ‘The People God Left.’
    Your land will never again be called ‘The Land God Destroyed.’
You will be called ‘The People God Loves.’
    Your land will be called ‘God’s Bride,’
because the Lord loves you,
    and your land will be his.[a]
As a young man takes a bride and she belongs to him,
    so your land will belong to your children.[b]
As a man is happy with his new wife,
    so your God will be happy with you.
