Isaiah 62
JPS Tanakh 1917
1For Zion’s sake will I not hold My peace,
And for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest,
Until her triumph go forth as brightness,
And her salvation as a torch that burneth.
2And the nations shall see thy triumph,
And all kings thy glory;
And thou shalt be called by a new name,
Which the mouth of the LORD shall mark out.
3Thou shalt also be a crown of beauty in the hand of the LORD,
And a royal diadem in the open hand of thy God.
4Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken,
Neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate;
But thou shalt be called, My delight is in her,
And thy land, Espoused;
For the LORD delighteth in thee,
And thy land shall be espoused.
5For as a young man espouseth a virgin,
So shall thy sons espouse thee;
And as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride,
So shall thy God rejoice over thee.

6I have set watchmen
Upon thy walls, O Jerusalem,
They shall never hold their peace
Day nor night:
‘Ye that are the LORD’S remembrancers,
Take ye no rest,
7And give Him no rest,
Till He establish,
And till He make Jerusalem
A praise in the earth.’
8The LORD hath sworn by His right hand,
And by the arm of His strength:
Surely I will no more give thy corn
To be food for thine enemies;
And strangers shall not drink thy wine,
For which thou hast laboured;
9But they that have garnered it shall eat it,
And praise the LORD,
And they that have gathered it shall drink it
In the courts of My sanctuary.

10Go through, go through the gates, Clear ye the way of the people;
Cast up, cast up the highway,
Gather out the stones;
Lift up an ensign over the peoples.
11Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed
Unto the end of the earth:
Say ye to the daughter of Zion:
‘Behold, thy salvation cometh;
Behold, His reward is with Him,
And His recompense before Him.’
12And they shall call them The holy people,
The redeemed of the LORD;
And thou shalt be called Sought out,
A city not forsaken.
