Isaiah 62
NASB 1977
Zion’s Glory and New Name

     1For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent,
            And for Jerusalem’s sake I will not keep quiet,
            Until her righteousness goes forth like brightness,
            And her salvation like a torch that is burning.

     2And the nations will see your righteousness,
            And all kings your glory;
            And you will be called by a new name,
            Which the mouth of the LORD will designate.

     3You will also be a crown of beauty in the hand of the LORD,
            And a royal diadem in the hand of your God.

     4It will no longer be said to you, “Forsaken,”
            Nor to your land will it any longer be said, “Desolate”;
            But you will be called, “My delight is in her,”
            And your land, “Married”;
            For the LORD delights in you,
            And to Him your land will be married.

     5For as a young man marries a virgin,
            So your sons will marry you;
            And as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
            So your God will rejoice over you.

     6On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen;
            All day and all night they will never keep silent.
            You who remind the LORD, take no rest for yourselves;

     7And give Him no rest until He establishes
            And makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

     8The LORD has sworn by His right hand and by His strong arm,
            “I will never again give your grain as food for your enemies;
            Nor will foreigners drink your new wine, for which you have labored.”

     9But those who garner it will eat it, and praise the LORD;
            And those who gather it will drink it in the courts of My sanctuary.

     10Go through, go through the gates;
            Clear the way for the people;
            Build up, build up the highway;
            Remove the stones, lift up a standard over the peoples.

     11Behold, the LORD has proclaimed to the end of the earth,
            Say to the daughter of Zion, “Lo, your salvation comes;
            Behold His reward is with Him, and His recompense before Him.”

     12And they will call them, “The holy people,
            The redeemed of the LORD”;
            And you will be called, “Sought out, a city not forsaken.”
