Zion’s New Identity

1 For the sake of Zion I will not be silent, and for the sake of Jerusalem I will not maintain a quiet attitude, until her righteousness goes out like the bright light, and her salvation burns like a torch. 2 And [the] nations shall see your righteousness, and all [the] kings your glory, and {you will be called}a a new name that the mouth of Yahweh will designate. 3 And you shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of Yahweh, and a headband of royalty in the hand of your God. 4 It shall no longer be said of you, "Forsaken," and it shall no longer be said of your land, "Desolation!" but {you will}b be called "My Delight [Is] In Her," and your land, "Married," for Yahweh delights in you, and your land shall be married. 5 For [as] a young man marries a virgin, [so] shall your sons marry you, and [as is the] joy of [the] bridegroom over [the] bride, [so] shall your God rejoice over you. 6 I have appointed watchmen upon your walls, Jerusalem; all day and all night they shall never be silent. You who profess Yahweh have no rest. 7 And you must not give him rest until he establishes, and until he {makes}c Jerusalem {an object of praise}d in the earth. 8 Yahweh has sworn by his right hand, and by {his mighty arm},e "Surely I will never again give your grain [as] food to {your enemies},f and surely {foreigners}g shall not drink your new wine at which you have labored." 9 But those who gather it shall eat it, and they shall praise Yahweh, and those who gather it shall drink it in {my holy courts}.h 10 Pass through, pass through the gates! Make the way clear {for}i the people! Pile up, pile up the highway; clear [it] of stones!j Lift up an ensign over the peoples! 11 Look! Yahweh has proclaimed to the end of the earth: Say to daughter Zion, "Look, your salvation [is] coming! Look, his reward [is] with him, and his reward before him. 12 And they shall call them "The {Holy People},k The Redeemed Of Yahweh," and {you}l shall be called "Sought After, A City Is Not Forsaken."
