Isaiah 62:1-3 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Chapter 62

A New Name for Zion

[a]For Zion’s sake I will not be silent,
    for Jerusalem’s sake I will not keep still,
Until her vindication shines forth like the dawn
    and her salvation like a burning torch.
Nations shall behold your vindication,
    and all kings your glory;
You shall be called by a new name
    bestowed by the mouth of the Lord.
You shall be a glorious crown in the hand of the Lord,
    a royal diadem in the hand of your God.

Footnotes:

  1. 62:1–12 As in chap. 60, the prophet addresses Zion, announcing the reversal of her fortune. Several motifs reappear: light and glory (60:1–3, 19–20), tribute of nations (60:11), and especially the marriage (61:10; cf. also 54:5–8).
