Thou shalt also be a [a]crown of glory in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.

It shall no more be said unto thee, [b]Forsaken, neither shall it be said anymore to thy land, Desolate, but thou shalt be called [c]Hephzibah, and thy land [d]Beulah: for the Lord delighteth in thee, and thy land shalt have an [e]husband.

For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons [f]marry thee: and as a bridegroom is glad of the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.
