Zion's Glory and New Name
1 For Zion's sake I will not keep silent,
And for Jerusalem's sake I will not keep quiet,
Until her righteousness R2563 goes forth like brightness,
And her salvation R2564 like a torch that is burning.
2 The nations R2565 will see your righteousness,
And all kings your glory;
And you will be called by a new name R2566
Which the mouth of the LORD will designate.
3 You will also be a crown R2567 of beauty in the hand of the LORD,
And a royal diadem F831 in the hand of your God.
4 It will no longer be said to you, "Forsaken," R2568 F832
Nor to your land will it any longer be said, "Desolate"; F833
But you will be called, "My F834 delight is in her,"
And your land, "Married"; R2569 F835
For the LORD R2570 delights in you,
And to Him your land will be married.
5 For as a young man marries a virgin,
So your sons will marry you;
And as the bridegroom F836 rejoices over the bride,
So your God R2571 will rejoice over you.
6 On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen; R2572
All day and all night they will never keep silent.
You who remind R2573 the LORD, take no rest for yourselves;
7 And give R2574 Him no rest until He establishes
And makes Jerusalem R2575 a praise in the earth.
8 The R2576 LORD has sworn by His right hand and by His strong arm,
"I will never R2577 again give your grain as food for your enemies;
Nor will foreigners F837 drink your new wine for which you have labored."
9 But those who garner R2578 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, go R2579 through the gates,
Clear the way for F838 the people;
Build R2580 up, build up the highway, R2581
Remove the stones, lift up a standard R2582 over the peoples.
11 Behold, the LORD has proclaimed to the end R2583 of the earth,
Say R2584 to the daughter of Zion, "Lo, your salvation R2585 comes;
Behold R2586 His reward is with Him, and His recompense before Him."
12 And they will call them, "The R2587 holy people,
The redeemed R2588 of the LORD";
And you will be called, "Sought out, a city not R2589 forsaken."
