English Standard Version
Zion's Coming Salvation
62 (A)For Zion's sake I will not keep silent,
and for Jerusalem's sake I will not be quiet,
(B)until her righteousness goes forth as brightness,
and her salvation as a burning torch.
2 (C)The nations shall see your righteousness,
and all the kings your glory,
(D)and you shall be called by a new name
that the mouth of the Lord will give.
3 You shall be (E)a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord,
and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
4 (F)You shall no more be termed (G)Forsaken,[a]
and your land shall no more be termed Desolate,[b]
(H)but you shall be called (I)My Delight Is in Her,[c]
and your land Married;[d]
for the Lord delights in you,
and your land shall be married.
5 For as a young man marries a young woman,
so (J)shall your sons marry you,
and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
so (K)shall your God rejoice over you.
6 On your walls, O Jerusalem,
I have set (L)watchmen;
all the day and all the night
they shall never be silent.
You who put the Lord in remembrance,
take no rest,
7 and give him no rest
until he establishes Jerusalem
and makes it (M)a praise in the earth.
8 The Lord has sworn (N)by his right hand
and by his mighty arm:
“I will not again give (O)your grain
to be food for your enemies,
(P)and foreigners shall not drink your wine
for which you have labored;
9 but (Q)those who garner it shall eat it
and praise the Lord,
and (R)those who gather it shall drink it
in the courts of my sanctuary.”[e]
10 Go through, go through the gates;
(S)prepare the way for the people;
(T)build up, build up the highway;
clear it of stones;
(U)lift up a signal over the peoples.
11 Behold, the Lord has proclaimed
to the end of the earth:
(V)Say to the daughter of Zion,
(W)“Behold, your salvation comes;
behold, his reward is with him,
and his recompense before him.”
12 (X)And they shall be called The Holy People,
The Redeemed of the Lord;
(Y)and you shall be called Sought Out,
A City Not Forsaken.
