I have posted watchmen(A) on your walls, Jerusalem;
    they will never be silent day or night.
You who call on the Lord,
    give yourselves no rest,(B)
and give him no rest(C) till he establishes Jerusalem
    and makes her the praise(D) of the earth.

The Lord has sworn(E) by his right hand
    and by his mighty arm:
“Never again will I give your grain(F)
    as food for your enemies,
and never again will foreigners drink the new wine
    for which you have toiled;
but those who harvest it will eat(G) it
    and praise the Lord,(H)
and those who gather the grapes will drink it
    in the courts of my sanctuary.”(I)

10 Pass through, pass through the gates!(J)
    Prepare the way for the people.
Build up, build up the highway!(K)
    Remove the stones.
Raise a banner(L) for the nations.

11 The Lord has made proclamation
    to the ends of the earth:(M)
“Say to Daughter Zion,(N)
    ‘See, your Savior comes!(O)
See, his reward is with him,
    and his recompense accompanies him.’”(P)
12 They will be called(Q) the Holy People,(R)
    the Redeemed(S) of the Lord;
and you will be called Sought After,
    the City No Longer Deserted.(T)
