Assurance of Zion’s Salvation 62 1For Zion’s sake I will not [R]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. 2The 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. 3You shall also be a crown of glory In the hand of the Lord, And a royal diadem In the hand of your God. 4You shall no longer be termed Forsaken, [S] Nor shall your land any more be termed Desolate; [T] But you shall be called [U]Hephzibah, and your land [V]Beulah; For the Lord delights in you, And your land shall be married. 5For 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. 6I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; They shall [W]never hold their peace day or night. You who [X]make mention of the Lord, do not keep silent, 7And give Him no rest till He establishes And till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth. 8The 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. 9But 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.” 10Go 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! 11Indeed 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 [Y]work before Him.’ ” 12And they shall call them The Holy People, The Redeemed of the Lord; And you shall be called Sought Out, A City Not Forsaken.
