Is 62:2And the nations will see your righteousness, / And all the kings, your glory; / And you will be called by a new name, / Which the mouth of Jehovah will designate.

Is 62:3You will also be a crown of beauty in the hand of Jehovah, / And a royal turban in the palm of your God.

Is 62:4And it will no longer be said to you, Forsaken! / Nor to your land will it be said any longer, Desolate! / But you will be called, My delight is in her, / And your land, Married; / For Jehovah delights in you, / And your land will be married.

Is 62:5For as a young man marries a virgin, / Your sons will marry you; / And with the joy of the bridegroom over the bride / Your God will rejoice over you.

Is 62:6Upon your walls, O Jerusalem, / I have appointed watchmen; / All day and all night / They will never keep silent. / You who remind Jehovah, / Do not be dumb;

Is 62:7And do not give Him quiet / Until He establishes / And until He makes Jerusalem / A praise in the earth.

Is 62:8Jehovah has sworn by His right hand / And by His strong arm: / Surely I will never again give your grain / As food for your enemies, / And surely the children of the foreigner will not drink your new wine / For which you have labored;

Is 62:9But they who have gathered it will eat it, / And they will praise Jehovah, / And they who have collected it will drink it / In the courts of My holiness.

Is 62:10Go through, go through the gates; / Prepare the way for the people; / Cast up, cast up the highway; / Free it of stones; / Raise up a standard for the peoples.

Is 62:11See, Jehovah has announced / To the end of the earth: / Say to the daughter of Zion, / Your salvation is now coming; / Now His reward is with Him / And His recompense before Him.

Is 62:12And they will call them, The holy people, / The redeemed of Jehovah; / And you will be called, Sought after! / A city not forsaken!
