Chapter 62

62:1 For Zion's sake will I not hold My peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until her triumph go forth as brightness, and her salvation as a torch that burneth.

62:2 And the nations shall see thy triumph, and all kings thy glory; and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall mark out.

62:3 Thou shalt also be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the open hand of thy God.

62:4 Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken, neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate; but thou shalt be called, My delight is in her, and thy land, Espoused; for the Lord delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be espoused.

62:5 For as a young man espouseth a virgin, so shall thy sons espouse thee; and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.

62:6 I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, they shall never hold their peace day nor night: 'Ye that are the Lord'S remembrancers, take ye no rest,

62:7 And give Him no rest, till He establish, and till He make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.'

62:8 the Lord hath sworn by His right hand, and by the arm of His strength: Surely I will no more give thy corn to be food for thine enemies; and strangers shall not drink thy wine, for which thou hast laboured;

62:9 But they that have garnered it shall eat it, and praise the Lord, and they that have gathered it shall drink it in the courts of My sanctuary.

62:10 Go through, go through the gates, clear ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway, gather out the stones; lift up an ensign over the peoples.

62:11 Behold, the Lord hath proclaimed unto the end of the earth: say ye to the daughter of Zion: 'Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, His reward is with Him, and His recompense before Him.'

62:12 And they shall call them The holy people, the redeemed of the Lord; and thou shalt be called Sought out, a city not forsaken.
