Zion's Coming Salvation

1 1For Zion's sake I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not be quiet, 2until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a burning torch. 2 3The nations shall see your righteousness, and all the kings your glory, 4and you shall be called by a new name that the mouth of the LORD will give. 3 You shall be 5a crown of beauty in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God. 4 6You shall no more be termed 7Forsaken,a and your land shall no more be termed Desolate,b 8but you shall be called 9My Delight Is in Her,c and your land Married;d for the LORD delights in you, and your land shall be married. 5 For as a young man marries a young woman, so 10shall your sons marry you, and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so 11shall your God rejoice over you. 6 On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have set 12watchmen; all the day and all the night they shall never be silent. You who put the LORD in remembrance, take no rest, 7 and give him no rest until he establishes Jerusalem and makes it 13a praise in the earth. 8 The LORD has sworn 14by his right hand and by his mighty arm: "I will not again give 15your grain to be food for your enemies, 16and foreigners shall not drink your wine for which you have labored; 9 but 17those who garner it shall eat it and praise the LORD, and 18those who gather it shall drink it in the courts of my sanctuary."e 10 Go through, go through the gates; 19prepare the way for the people; 20build up, build up the highway; clear it of stones; 21lift up a signal over the peoples. 11 Behold, the LORD has proclaimed to the end of the earth: 22Say to the daughter of Zion, 23"Behold, your salvation comes; behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him." 12 24And they shall be called The Holy People, The Redeemed of the LORD; 25and you shall be called Sought Out, A City Not Forsaken.
