3 You will be like a beautiful crown that the Lord holds up,
like a king’s crown in the hand of your God.
4 You will never again be called ‘The People God Left.’
Your land will never again be called ‘The Land God Destroyed.’
You will be called ‘The People God Loves.’
Your land will be called ‘God’s Bride,’
because the Lord loves you,
and your land will be his.[a]
5 As a young man takes a bride and she belongs to him,
so your land will belong to your children.[b]
As a man is happy with his new wife,
so your God will be happy with you.
New International Version
3 You will be a crown(A) of splendor in the Lord’s hand,
a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
4 No longer will they call you Deserted,(B)
or name your land Desolate.(C)
But you will be called Hephzibah,[a](D)
and your land Beulah[b];
for the Lord will take delight(E) in you,
and your land will be married.(F)
5 As a young man marries a young woman,
so will your Builder marry you;
as a bridegroom(G) rejoices over his bride,
so will your God rejoice(H) over you.
