For Zion's sake I will not keep silent,1 for Jerusalem's sake I will not remain quiet, till her righteousness2 shines out like the dawn,3 her salvation4 like a blazing torch.
The nations5 will see your righteousness, and all kings your glory; you will be called by a new name6 that the mouth of the LORD will bestow.
You will be a crown7 of splendor in the LORD's hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
No longer will they call you Deserted,8 or name your land Desolate.9 But you will be called Hephzibah,a10 and your land Beulahb; for the LORD will take delight11 in you, and your land will be married.125
As a young man marries a maiden, so will your sonsc marry you; as a bridegroom13 rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice14 over you.
I have posted watchmen15 on your walls, O Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the LORD, give yourselves no rest,16
