1 For Zion’s sake I will not [a]hold my tongue, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof break forth as the [b]light, and salvation thereof as a burning lamp.
2 And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all Kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by [c]a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name.
3 Thou shalt also be a [d]crown of glory in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.
4 It shall no more be said unto thee, [e]Forsaken, neither shall it be said anymore to thy land, Desolate, but thou shalt be called [f]Hephzibah, and thy land [g]Beulah: for the Lord delighteth in thee, and thy land shalt have an [h]husband.
5 For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons [i]marry thee: and as a bridegroom is glad of the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.
6 I have set [j]watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which all the day and all the night continual shall not cease: [k]ye that are mindful of the Lord, keep not silence,
7 And give him no rest, till he repair, and until he set up Jerusalem the [l]praise of the world.
8 The Lord hath sworn by his right hand and by his strong arm, Surely I will no more give thy corn to be meat for thine enemies, and surely the sons of the strangers shall not drink thy wine, for the which thou hast labored.
9 But they that have gathered it, shall eat it, and praise the Lord, and the gatherers thereof shall drink it in the courts of my Sanctuary.
10 [m]Go through, go through the gates: prepare you the way for the people: cast up, cast up the way, and gather out the stones, and set up a standard for the people.
11 Behold, the Lord hath proclaimed unto the ends of the world, [n]tell the daughter Zion, Behold, thy Savior cometh: Behold, his wages is with him, and [o]his work is before him.
12 And they shall call them, The holy people, the redeemed of the Lord, and thou shalt be named, A [p]city sought out and not forsaken.
