You will also be a (A)crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord,
And a royal [a]diadem in the hand of your God.
It will no longer be said to you, “[b](B)Forsaken,”
Nor to your land will it any longer be said, “[c]Desolate”;
But you will be called, “[d]My delight is in her,”
And your land, “[e](C)Married”;
For the (D)Lord delights in you,
And to Him your land will be married.
For as a young man marries a virgin,
So your sons will marry you;
And as the [f]bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
So your (E)God will rejoice over you.
