You shall be called by a new name,which the mouth of the Lord will name. You shall also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord, And a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
You shall no longer be termed Forsaken, Nor shall your land any more be termed Desolate; But you shall be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah.
For the Lord delights in you, and your land shall be married. For 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.
I have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem; They shall never hold their peace day or night. You who make mention of the Lord, do not keep silent, And give Him no rest till He establishes And till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
The 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.But 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." (Isaiah 62:2-9; NKJV)
