1 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. 2 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. 3 You will also be a acrown of beauty in the hand of the Lord, And a royal diadem in the hand of your God. 4 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. 5 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. 6 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; 7 And agive Him no rest until He establishes And makes bJerusalem a praise in the earth. 8 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." 9 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. 10 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. 11 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." 12 And they will call them, "aThe holy people, The bredeemed of the Lord"; And you will be called, "Sought out, a city cnot forsaken."
