Bible: Isa 62:1-5

The Lord Takes Delight in Zion

62:1For the sake of Zion I will not be silent;

for the sake of Jerusalem 1  I will not be quiet,

until her vindication shines brightly 2 

and her deliverance burns like a torch.”

62:2 Nations will see your vindication,

and all kings your splendor.

You will be called by a new name

that the Lord himself will give you. 3 

62:3 You will be a majestic crown in the hand of the Lord,

a royal turban in the hand of your God.

62:4 You will no longer be called, “Abandoned,”

and your land will no longer be called “Desolate.”

Indeed, 4  you will be called “My Delight is in Her,” 5 

and your land “Married.” 6 

For the Lord will take delight in you,

and your land will be married to him. 7 

62:5 As a young man marries a young woman,

so your sons 8  will marry you.

As a bridegroom rejoices over a bride,

so your God will rejoice over you.
