The Salvation of Zion

62 For the sake of Zion I will not keep silent,
    and for the sake of Jerusalem I will not rest
until her righteousness goes forth as brightness
    and her salvation as a lamp that burns.
The nations shall see your righteousness,
    and all kings your glory.
And you shall be called by a new name,
    which the mouth of the Lord shall name.
You shall also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord
    and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
You shall no more be termed Forsaken,
    nor shall your land be termed Desolate;
but you shall be called My Delight Is In Her,
    and your land Married;
for the Lord delights in you,
    and your land shall be married.
For as a young man marries a virgin,
    so your sons shall marry you;
and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
    so your God shall rejoice over you.

I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem,
    who shall never hold their peace day nor night.
You who remind the Lord,
    do not keep silent;
give Him no rest until He establishes
    and makes Jerusalem a glory in the earth.

The Lord has sworn by His right hand
    and by His strong arm:
Surely I will no longer give your grain
    as food for your enemies;
and the sons of the foreigners shall not drink your wine
    for which you have labored.
But those who have gathered it shall eat it
    and praise the Lord;
and those who have brought it shall drink it
    in the courts of My sanctuary.

10 Go through, go through the gates.
    Prepare the way of the people;
build up, build up the highway.
    Remove the stones;
lift up a standard over the peoples.

11 The Lord has proclaimed
    to the ends of the earth:
Say to the daughter of Zion,
    “See, your salvation comes;
see, His reward is with Him,
    and His recompense before Him.”
12 They shall call them The Holy People,
    the Redeemed of the Lord;
and you shall be called Sought Out,
    a City Not Forsaken.
