  • Isaiah 62:1-5

    Jerusalem redeemed

    62 For Zion’s sake I won’t keep silent,
        and for Jerusalem’s sake I won’t sit still
        until her righteousness shines out like a light,
        and her salvation blazes like a torch.
    Nations will see your righteousness,
        all kings your glory.
    You will be called by a new name,
        which the Lord’s own mouth will determine.
    You will be a splendid garland in the Lord’s hand,
        a royal turban in the palm of God’s hand.
    You will no longer be called Abandoned,
        and your land will no longer be called Deserted.
    Instead, you will be called My Delight Is in Her,
        and your land, Married.
        Because the Lord delights in you,
        your land will be cared for once again.
    As a young man marries a young woman,
        so your sons will marry you.
        With the joy of a bridegroom because of his bride,
        so your God will rejoice because of you.
