Isaiah Chapter 62 - New American Standard Bible

1. FOR Zion's sake I will not keep silent, And for Jerusalem's sake I will not keep quiet, Until her righteousness goes forth like brightness, And her salvation like a torch that is burning.

2. The nations will see your righteousness, And all kings your glory; And you will be called by a new name Which the mouth of the LORD will designate.

3. You will also be a crown of beauty in the hand of the LORD, And a royal [1] diadem in the hand of your God.

4. It will no longer be said to you, « [5] Forsaken,» Nor to your land will it any longer be said, « [4] Desolate»; But you will be called, « [3] My delight is in her,» And your land, « [2] Married»; For the LORD delights in you, And to Him your land will be married.

5. For as a young man marries a virgin, So your sons will marry you; And as the [6] bridegroom rejoices over the bride, So your God will rejoice over you.

6. On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen; All day and all night they will never keep silent. You who remind the LORD, take no rest for yourselves;

7. And give Him no rest until He establishes And makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

8. The LORD has sworn by His right hand and by His strong arm, «I will never again give your grain as food for your enemies; Nor will [7] foreigners drink your new wine for which you have labored.»

9. But those who garner it will eat it and praise the LORD; And those who gather it will drink it in the courts of My sanctuary.

10. Go through, go through the gates, Clear the way [8] for the people; Build up, build up the highway, Remove the stones, lift up a standard over the peoples.

11. Behold, the LORD has proclaimed to the end of the earth, Say to the daughter of Zion, «Lo, your salvation comes; Behold His reward is with Him, and His recompense before Him.»

12. And they will call them, « The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD»; And you will be called, «Sought out, a city not forsaken.»
