1 For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent;for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain stilltill her righteousness shines like a light,her salvation like a flaming torch. 2 The nations shall behold your righteousnessand all their rulers your glory;you shall be called by a new nameconferred by the mouth of Jehovah.
3 Then shall you be a crown of gloryin the hand of Jehovah,a royal diadem in the palm of your God. 4 You shall no more be called the forsaken one,nor your land referred to as desolate;you shall be known as her in whom I delightand your land considered espoused.For Jehovah shall delight in you,and your land shall be espoused. 5 As a young man weds a virgin,so shall your sons wed you;as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,so shall your God rejoice over you.
6 I have appointed watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem,who shall not be silent day or night.You who call upon Jehovah, let not up 7 nor give him respite till he reestablishes Jerusalemand makes it renowned in the earth.
8 Jehovah has sworn by his right hand, his mighty arm:I will no more let your grain be food for your enemies,nor shall foreigners drink the new wine you have toiled for. 9 Those who harvest it shall eat it,giving praise to Jehovah;those who gather it shall drink itwithin the environs of my sanctuary.
10 Pass on, go through gates;prepare the way for the people!Excavate, pave a highway cleared of stones;raise the ensign to the nations! 11 Jehovah has made proclamation to the end of the earth:Tell the Daughter of Zion,See, your Salvation comes,his reward with him, his work preceding him. 12 They shall be called the holy people,the redeemed of Jehovah;and you shall be known as in demand,a city never deserted.
