You shall be a glorious crown in the hand of the Lord,
    a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
No more shall you be called “Forsaken,”
    nor your land called “Desolate,”
But you shall be called “My Delight is in her,”
    and your land “Espoused.”
For the Lord delights in you,
    and your land shall be espoused.(A)
For as a young man marries a virgin,
    your Builder shall marry you;
And as a bridegroom rejoices in his bride
    so shall your God rejoice in you.

You will be a crown(A) of splendor in the Lord’s hand,
    a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
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)
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.
