Jerusalem’s Salvation Is Coming

62 For Zion’s sake I will not remain silent.
    For Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest,
    until its righteousness shines like the dawn
        and its salvation burns brightly like a torch.
The nations will see your righteousness.
    All kings will see your glory.
    You will be given a new name
    that Yahweh will announce.
Then you will be a beautiful crown in the hand of Yahweh,
    a royal crown in the hand of your Elohim.
You will no longer be called Deserted,
    and your land will no longer be called Destroyed.
    But you will be named My Delight,
    and your land will be named Married.
    Yahweh is delighted with you,
    and your land will be married.
As a young man marries a woman,
    so your sons will marry you.
    As a bridegroom rejoices over his bride,
    so your Elohim will rejoice over you.

I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem.
    They will never be silent day or night.
    Whoever calls on Yahweh, do not give yourselves any rest,
and do not give him any rest until he establishes Jerusalem
    and makes it an object of praise throughout the earth.
Yahweh has sworn with his right hand and with his mighty arm,
    “I will never again let your enemies eat your grain,
        nor will foreigners drink the new wine which you made.”
            Those who harvest grain
                will eat it and praise Yahweh.
            Those who gather grapes
                will drink wine in my holy courtyards.

10 Go through! Go through the gates!
    Prepare a way for the people!
    Build up! Build up the highway!
    Clear away the stones!
    Raise a flag for the people!

11 Yahweh has announced to the ends of the earth:
    “Tell my people Zion,
        ‘Your Savior is coming.
        His reward is with him,
            and the people he has won arrive ahead of him.’”

12 They will be called Holy People, Those Reclaimed by Yahweh,
    and you will be called Sought After, a City Not Deserted.
