They must give him no rest until he restores Jerusalem And makes it a city the whole world praises.
The Lord has made a solemn promise, And by his power he will carry it out: "Your grain will no longer be food for your enemies, And foreigners will no longer drink your wine.
But you that planted and harvested the grain Will eat the bread and praise the Lord. You that tended and gathered the grapes Will drink the wine in the courts of my Temple."
People of Jerusalem, go out of the city And build a road for your returning people! Prepare a highway; clear it of stones! Put up a signal so that the nations can know
That the Lord is announcing to all the earth: 1 "Tell the people of Jerusalem That the Lord is coming to save you, Bringing with him the people he has rescued."
You will be called "God's Holy People," "The People the Lord Has Saved." Jerusalem will be called "The City That God Loves," "The City That God Did Not Forsake."
