Isaiah 62
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1For Zion’s sake I am not silent, "" And for Jerusalem’s sake I do not rest, "" Until her righteousness goes out as brightness, "" And her salvation burns as a torch.

2And nations have seen your righteousness, "" And all kings your glory, "" And He is giving a new name to you, "" That the mouth of YHWH defines.

3And you have been a crown of beauty in the hand of YHWH, "" And a turban of royalty in the hand of your God,

4It is not said of you anymore, “Forsaken!” And of your land it is not said anymore, “Desolate,” "" For to you is cried, “My delight [is] in her,” "" And to your land, “Married,” "" For YHWH has delighted in you, "" And your land is married.

5For a young man marries a virgin, "" Your builders marry you, "" With the joy of a bridegroom over a bride, "" Your God rejoices over you.

6“On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen, "" All the day and all the night, "" Continually, they are not silent.” O you remembering YHWH, do not keep silence for yourselves,

7And do not give silence to Him, "" Until He establishes, and until He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

8YHWH has sworn by His right hand, "" Even by the arm of His strength: “I do not give your grain anymore [as] food for your enemies, "" Nor do sons of a stranger drink your new wine, "" For which you have labored.

9For those gathering it eat it, and have praised YHWH, "" And those collecting it drink it in My holy courts.”

10Pass on, pass on through the gates, "" Prepare the way of the people, "" Raise up, raise up the highway, clear it from stones, "" Lift up an ensign over the peoples.

11Behold, YHWH has proclaimed to the end of the earth: “Say to the daughter of Zion, "" Behold, your salvation has come, "" Behold, His hire [is] with Him, "" And His wage before Him.”

12And they have cried to them, “The People of the Holy One! The Redeemed of YHWH!” Indeed, to you is called, “The sought out one, a city not forsaken!”
