1 For Zion's sake I will not be silent, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until its
righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a burning lamp.
2 And the nations shall see your righteousness, and all kings your glory; and you shall
be called by a new name, which the mouth of Jehovah will name.
3 You also shall be a crown of glory in the hand of Jehovah, and a royal diadem in the
hand of your God.
4 You shall no more be called Forsaken; nor shall your land any more be called
Desolate; but you shall be called My Delight Is In Her, and your land, Married; for
Jehovah delights in you, and your land is married.
5 For as a young man marries a virgin, so shall your sons marry you; and as the
bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so will your God rejoice over you.
6 I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem, who shall never be silent day or
night; you who remember Jehovah, do not keep silent.
7 And give Him no rest until He establishes and makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
8 Jehovah has sworn by His right hand, and by the arm of His strength: Surely I will no
more give your grain as food for your enemies; and the children of foreigners shall not
drink your wine for which you have labored.
9 But those who gathered it shall eat it, and praise Jehovah; and those who brought it
together shall drink it in My holy courts.
10 Pass! Pass through the gates! Prepare the way for the people. Raise up! Raise up the
highway; gather out the stones; lift up a banner for the people.
11 Behold, Jehovah has proclaimed to the ends of the earth, Say to the daughter of Zion,
Behold, your salvation comes. Behold, His reward is with Him, and His work before
12 And they shall call them, The Holy People, The Redeemed Of Jehovah; and you shall
be called, Sought Out, A City Not Forsaken.
