You will be a crown of splendor in the Lord’s hand,
    and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
And[a] you’ll no longer be called ‘Deserted,’
    and your land will no longer be called ‘Desolate’;
but people will call you[b] ‘Hephzibah,’[c]
    and your land ‘Beulah’[d]
for the Lord will take delight in you,
    and your land will be married.”

“For just as[e] a young man marries a maiden,
    so your sons will marry you;
and just as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride,
    so your God will rejoice over you.
