Isaiah 62

62
LXII
1For Zion's sake I will not keep silence,
And for the sake of Jerusalem I will not rest,
Until her righteousness go forth as brightness;
And her salvation like a torch that burneth.
2And the nations shall see thy righteousness,
And all kings thy glory;
And thou shalt be called by a new name,
Which the mouth of Jehovah shall name.
3Thou shalt also be a beautiful crown in the hand of Jehovah,
And a royal diadem in the palm of the hand of thy God.
4Thou shalt no more be termed, Forsaken;
Neither shall thy land any more be termed, Desolate;
But thou shalt be called, The object of my delight;
And thy land, The wedded matron:
For Jehovah shall delight in thee,
And thy land shall be joined in marriage.
5For as a young man marrieth a virgin,
So shall thy sons marry thee,
And as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride,
So shall thy God rejoice over thee.
6I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem!
All the day and all the night long they shall not keep silence.
Ye that make mention of Jehovah, keep not silence,
7And give Him no rest,
Till He establish, and till He make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
8 Jehovah hath sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength:
Surely, I will no more give thy corn for food to thine enemies,
And the sons of the stranger shall not drink thy wine, for which thou hast laboured:
9But they that have gathered it shall eat it,
And shall praise Jehovah:
And they that have brought it together, shall drink it in the courts of my holiness.
10Pass ye, pass through the gates;
Prepare the way for the people;
Cast up, cast up the causeway; clear it of stones;
Lift up a standard for the people.
11Behold! Jehovah hath proclaimed unto the end of the earth:
Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold! thy salvation cometh;
Behold! his reward is with him, and his recompense before him.
12And they shall be called: The Holy People, The Redeemed of Jehovah;
And thou shalt be called: The Frequented, The City Unforsaken.

Zion’s Salvation and New Name
1For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent,
and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not keep still,
until her righteousness shines like a bright light,
her salvation like a blazing torch.
2Nations will see your righteousness,
and all kings your glory.
You will be called by a new name
that the mouth of the Lord will bestow.
3You will be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord,
a royal diadem in the palm of your God.
4No longer will you be called Forsaken,#62:4 Hebrew Azubah
nor your land named Desolate;#62:4 Hebrew Shemamah
but you will be called Hephzibah,#62:4 Hephzibah means My delight is in her.
and your land Beulah;#62:4 Beulah means married.
for the Lord will take delight in you,
and your land will be His bride.
5For as a young man marries a young woman,
so your sons will marry you;
and as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride,
so your God will rejoice over you.
6On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have posted watchmen;
they will never be silent day or night.
You who call on the Lord
shall take no rest for yourselves,
7nor give Him any rest
until He establishes Jerusalem
and makes her the praise of the earth.
8The Lord has sworn by His right hand
and by His mighty arm:
“Never again will I give your grain
to your enemies for food,
nor will foreigners drink the new wine
for which you have toiled.
9For those who harvest grain
will eat it and praise the Lord,
and those who gather grapes
will drink the wine in My holy courts.”
10Go out, go out through the gates;
prepare the way for the people!
Build it up, build up the highway;
clear away the stones;
raise a banner for the nations!
11Behold, the Lord has proclaimed
to the ends of the earth,
“Say to Daughter Zion:
See, your Savior comes!
Look, His reward is with Him,
and His recompense goes before Him.”
12And they will be called the Holy People,
the Redeemed of The Lord;
and you will be called Sought Out,
A City Not Forsaken.
