Zion’s Glory and New Name

62 For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent,
And for Jerusalem’s sake I will not keep quiet,
Until her (A)righteousness goes forth like brightness,
And her (B)salvation like a torch that is burning.
The (C)nations will see your righteousness,
And all kings your glory;
And you will be called by a new (D)name
Which the mouth of the Lord will designate.
You will also be a (E)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](F)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](G)Married”;
For the (H)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 (I)God will rejoice over you.

On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed (J)watchmen;
All day and all night they will never keep silent.
You who (K)remind the Lord, take no rest for yourselves;
And (L)give Him no rest until He establishes
And makes (M)Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
(N)The Lord has sworn by His right hand and by His strong arm,
“I will (O)never again give your grain as food for your enemies;
Nor will [g]foreigners drink your new wine for which you have labored.”
But those who (P)garner it will eat it and praise the Lord;
And those who gather it will drink it in the courts of My sanctuary.

10 Go through, (Q)go through the gates,
Clear the way [h]for the people;
(R)Build up, build up the (S)highway,
Remove the stones, lift up a (T)standard over the peoples.
11 Behold, the Lord has proclaimed to the (U)end of the earth,
(V)Say to the daughter of Zion, “Lo, your (W)salvation comes;
(X)Behold His reward is with Him, and His recompense before Him.”
12 And they will call them, “(Y)The holy people,
The (Z)redeemed of the Lord”;
And you will be called, “Sought out, a city (AA)not forsaken.”
