Isaiah 62 ©

1 The prophet's zeal in interceding for the accomplishment of God's glorious promises to his church. 6 The ministers of God are incited to use the like importunity. 8 God's gracious promises confirmed by oath. 10 The preparation of the gospel salvation.


FOR aZion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until bthe righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.


cAnd the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and dthou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.


Thou shalt also be ea crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal *diadem in the hand of thy God.


fThou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed gDesolate: but thou shalt be called 1Hephzi-bah, and thy land 2Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, hand thy land shall be married.


¶For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so ishall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom 3rejoiceth over the bride, so jshall thy God rejoice over thee.


I have set kwatchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: 4ye that make mention of the LORD, lkeep not silence,


And give him no 5rest, mtill he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.


The LORD hath nsworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength, 6Surely oI will no more give thy corn to be *meat for thine enemies; and the sons of the stranger shall not drink thy wine, for the which thou hast laboured:


pBut they that have gathered it shall eat it, and praise the LORD; and they that have brought it together shall drink it in the courts of my holiness.


qGo through, go through the gates; prepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a *standard for the people.


Behold, rthe LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, sSay ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, tthy salvation cometh; behold, uhis reward is with him, and his 7work before him.


And they shall call them, vThe holy people, wThe redeemed of the LORD: and thou xshalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken.
