Isaiah 62
NASB + Strong's
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.

2The 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."
