and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest,
until her righteousness goes forth as brightness
and her salvation as a burning torch.
and all kings will see your glory,
and you will be called by a new name
that the mouth of Yahweh will name you.
and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
neither will your land any more be termed “Desolate:”
but you will be called “My delight is in her,”
and your land “Married;”
for Yahweh delights in you,
and your land will be married.
so your sons will marry you;
and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
so your God will rejoice over you.
and by the arm of his strength,
“Surely I will no longer give your grain
to be food for your enemies,
and foreigners will not drink your new wine
for which you have labored:
and praise Yahweh,
and those who have gathered it will drink it
in the courts of my sanctuary.”
Prepare the road for the people!
Build up, build up the highway!
Gather out the stones!
Lift up a banner for the people.
to the end of the earth,
“Say to the daughter of Zion,
‘Behold, your salvation is coming.
Behold, his reward is with him
and his rewards accompany him.’”
“The redeemed of Yahweh.”
And you will be called “Sought out,”
“A city not forsaken.”
