For Zion's sake I will not keep silent, And for Jerusalem's sake I will not keep quiet, Until her arighteousness goes forth like brightness, And her bsalvation like a torch that is burning.
The anations will see your righteousness, And all kings your glory; And you will be called by a new bname Which the mouth of the Lord will designate.
You will also be a acrown of beauty in the hand of the Lord, And a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
It will no longer be said to you, "aForsaken," Nor to your land will it any longer be said, "Desolate"; But you will be called, "My delight is in her," And your land, "bMarried"; For the cLord delights in you, And to Him your land will be married.
For as a young man marries a virgin, So your sons will marry you; And as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, So your aGod will rejoice over you.
On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed awatchmen; All day and all night they will never keep silent. You who bremind the Lord, take no rest for yourselves;
And agive Him no rest until He establishes And makes bJerusalem a praise in the earth.
aThe Lord has sworn by His right hand and by His strong arm, "I will bnever again give your grain as food for your enemies; Nor will foreigners drink your new wine for which you have labored."
But those who agarner it will eat it and praise the Lord; And those who gather it will drink it in the courts of My sanctuary.
Go through, ago through the gates, Clear the way for the people; bBuild up, build up the chighway, Remove the stones, lift up a dstandard over the peoples.
Behold, the Lord has proclaimed to the aend of the earth, bSay to the daughter of Zion, "Lo, your csalvation comes; dBehold His reward is with Him, and His recompense before Him."
And they will call them, "aThe holy people, The bredeemed of the Lord"; And you will be called, "Sought out, a city cnot forsaken."
