Isaiah Chapter 62 |
1For the sake of Zion I will not be silent,
For the sake of Jerusalem I will not be still,
Till her victory emerge resplendent
And her triumph like a flaming torch.
2Nations shall see your victory,
And every king your majesty;
And you shall be called by a new name
Which the Lord Himself shall bestow.
3You shall be a glorious crown
In the hand of the Lord,
And a royal diadem
In the palm of your God.
4Nevermore shall you be called “Forsaken,”
Nor shall your land be called “Desolate”;
But you shall be called “I delight in her,”
And your land “Espoused.”
For the Lord takes delight in you,
And your land shall be espoused.
5As a youth espouses a maiden,
Your sons shall espouse you;
And as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride,
So will your God rejoice over you.
6Upon your walls, O Jerusalem,
I have set watchmen,
Who shall never be silent
By day or by night.
O you, the Lord’s remembrancers,
Take no rest
7And give no rest to Him,
Until He establish Jerusalem
And make her renowned on earth.
8The Lord has sworn by His right hand,
By His mighty arm:
Nevermore will I give your new grain
To your enemies for food,
Nor shall foreigners drink the new wine
For which you have labored.
9But those who harvest it shall eat it
And give praise to the Lord;
And those who gather it shall drink it
In My sacred courts.
10Pass through, pass through the gates!
Clear the road for the people;
Build up, build up the highway,
Remove the rocks!
Raise an ensign over the peoples!
11See, the Lord has proclaimed
To the end of the earth:
Announce to Fair Zion,
Your Deliverer is coming!
See, his reward is with Him,
His recompense before Him.
12And they shall be called, “The Holy People,
The Redeemed of the Lord,”
And you shall be called, “Sought Out,
A City Not Forsaken.”
