Isaiah 62 (NKJV)
1 For Zion’s sake I will not hold My peace, And for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest,
Until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, And her salvation as a lamp that burns.
2 The Gentiles shall see your righteousness, And all kings your glory.
You shall be called by a new name, Which the mouth of the LORD will name.
3 You shall also be a crown of glory, In the hand of the LORD,
And a royal diadem, In the hand of your God.
4 You shall no longer be termed Forsaken, Nor shall your land any more be termed Desolate;
But you shall be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah; For the LORD delights in you,
And your land shall be married.
5 For as a young man marries a virgin, So shall your sons marry you;
And as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, So shall your God rejoice over you.
6 I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; They shall never hold their peace day or night.
You who make mention of the LORD, do not keep silent,
7 And give Him no rest till He establishes
And till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
8 The LORD has sworn by His right hand
And by the arm of His strength: ” Surely I will no longer give your grain, As food for your enemies;
And the sons of the foreigner shall not drink your new wine, For which you have labored.
9 But those who have gathered it shall eat it, And praise the LORD;
Those who have brought it together shall drink it in My holy courts.”
10 Go through, Go through the gates! Prepare the way for the people;
Build up, Build up the highway! Take out the stones, Lift up a banner for the peoples!
11 Indeed the LORD has proclaimed, To the end of the world:
” Say to the daughter of Zion, ‘Surely your salvation is coming;
Behold, His reward is with Him, And His work before Him.'”
12 And they shall call them The Holy People, The Redeemed of the LORD;
And you shall be called Sought Out, A City Not Forsaken.
