You should not stop praying to him until he builds up Jerusalem and makes it a city all people will praise.
The Lord has made a promise, and by his power he will keep his promise. He said, "I will never again give your grain as food to your enemies. I will not let your enemies drink the new wine that you have worked to make.
The person who gathers food will eat it, and he will praise the Lord. The person who gathers the grapes will drink the wine in the courts of my Temple."
Go through, go through the gates! Make the way ready for the people. Build up, build up the road! Move all the stones off the road. Raise the banner as a sign for the people.
The Lord is speaking to all the faraway lands: "Tell the people of Jerusalem, 'Look, your Savior is coming. He is bringing your reward to you; he is bringing his payment with him.'"
His people will be called the Holy People, the Saved People of the Lord, and Jerusalem will be called the City God Wants, the City God Has Not Rejected.
