Isaiah 62:1-9 NRS

1 For Zion's sake I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until her vindication shines out like the dawn, and her salvation like a burning torch.
2 The nations shall see your vindication, and all the kings your glory; and you shall be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will give.
3 You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
4 You shall no more be termed Forsaken, a and your land shall no more be termed Desolate; b but you shall be called My Delight Is in Her, c and your land Married; d for the Lord delights in you, and your land shall be married.
