(A)You shall no more be termed (B)Forsaken,[a]
    and your land shall no more be termed Desolate,[b]
(C)but you shall be called (D)My Delight Is in Her,[c]
    and your land Married;[d]
for the Lord delights in you,
    and your land shall be married.
For as a young man marries a young woman,
    so (E)shall your sons marry you,
and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
    so (F)shall your God rejoice over you.
