I will not keep silent because of Zion, and I will not keep still because of Jerusalem until her righteousness shines like a bright light, and her salvation like a flaming torch.
Nations will see your righteousness, and all kings your glory. You will be called by a new name that the Lord's mouth will announce.
You will be a glorious crown in the Lord's hand, and a royal diadem in the palm of your God.
You will no longer be called Deserted, and your land will not be called Desolate; instead, you will be called My Delight is in Her,a and your land Married;b for the Lord delights in you, and your land will be married.
For as a young man marries a virgin, so your sons will marry you; and as a bridegroom rejoicesc over [his] bride, so your God will rejoice over you.
Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen on your walls; they will never be silent, day or night. You, who remind the Lord, no rest for you!
Do not give Him rest until He establishes and makes her Jerusalem the praise of the earth.
The Lord has sworn with His right hand and His strong arm: I will no longer give your grain to your enemies for food, and foreigners will not drink your new wine you have labored for.
For those who gather grain will eat it and praise the Lord, and those who harvest the grapes will drink [the wine] in My holy courts.
Go out, go out through the gates; prepare a way for the people! Build it up, build up the highway; clear away the stones! Raise a banner for the peoples.
Look, the Lord has proclaimed to the end of the earth, "Say to Daughter Zion: Look, your salvation is coming, His reward is with Him, and His recompense is before Him."
And they will be calledd the Holy People, the Lord's Redeemed; and you will be called Cared For, A City Not Deserted.
