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.

Isaiah 62

62
1I will speak out to encourage Jerusalem;
I will not be silent until she is saved,
And her victory shines like a torch in the night.
2Jerusalem, the nations will see you victorious!
All their kings will see your glory.
You will be called by a new name,
A name given by the LORD himself.
3You will be like a beautiful crown for the LORD.
4No longer will you be called “Forsaken”,
Or your land be called “The Deserted Wife”.
Your new name will be “God is Pleased with Her”.
Your land will be called “Happily Married”,
Because the LORD is pleased with you
And will be like a husband to your land.
5Like a young man taking a virgin as his bride,
He who formed you will marry you.
As a groom is delighted with his bride,
So your God will delight in you.
6On your walls, Jerusalem,
I have placed sentries;
They must never be silent day or night.
They must remind the LORD of his promises
And never let him forget them.
7They must give him no rest until he restores Jerusalem
And makes it a city the whole world praises.
8The LORD has made a solemn promise,
And by his power he will carry it out:
“Your corn will no longer be food for your enemies,
And foreigners will no longer drink your wine.
9But you that sowed and harvested the corn
Will eat the bread and praise the LORD.
You that tended and gathered the grapes
Will drink the wine in the courts of my Temple.”
10People of Jerusalem, go out of the city
And build a road for your returning people!
Prepare a highway; clear it of stones!
Put up a signal so that the nations can know
11 # Is 40.10; Rev 22.12 That the LORD is announcing to all the earth:
“Tell the people of Jerusalem
That the LORD is coming to save you,
Bringing with him the people he has rescued.”
12You will be called “God's Holy People”,
“The People the LORD has Saved”.
Jerusalem will be called “The City that God Loves”,
“The City that God did not Forsake”.
