1For Zion’ssake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’ssake I will not rest, until the righteousnessthereof go forthas brightness, and the salvationthereof as a lamp that burneth.
2And the Gentilesshall seethy righteousness, and all kingsthy glory: and thou shalt be calledby a newname, which the mouthof the LORDshall name. 3Thou shalt also be a crownof gloryin the handof the LORD, and a royaldiademin the handof thy God. 4Thou shalt no more be termedForsaken; neither shall thy landany more be termedDesolate: but thou shalt be calledHephzi-bah, and thy landBeulah: for the LORDdelightethin thee, and thy landshall be married. 5 For as a young manmarrietha virgin, so shall thy sonsmarry thee: and as the bridegroomrejoicethover the bride, so shall thy Godrejoice over thee.
6I have setwatchmenupon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall neverhold their peacedaynor night: ye that make mentionof the LORD, keep not silence, 7And givehim no rest, till he establish, and till he makeJerusalema praisein the earth. 8The LORDhath swornby his right hand, and by the armof his strength, Surely I willno more givethy corn to be meatfor thine enemies; and the sonsof the strangershall not drinkthy wine, for the which thou hast laboured: 9But they that have gatheredit shall eatit, and praisethe LORD; and they that have brought it togethershall drinkit in the courtsof my holiness.
10Go through, go throughthe gates; prepare ye the wayof the people; cast up, cast upthe highway; gather outthe stones; lift upa standardfor the people.
11Behold, the LORDhath proclaimedunto the endof the world, Sayye to the daughterof Zion, Behold, thy salvationcometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his workbefore him. 12And they shall callthem, The holypeople, The redeemedof the LORD: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A citynot forsaken.
