¶ For Sion's sake therefore will I not hold my tongue, and for Ierusalem's sake I will not cease: until their righteousness break forth as a shining light, and their health as a burning lamp. Then shall the Gentiles see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory. Thou shalt be named with a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall shew. Thou shalt be a crown in the hand of the LORD, and a glorious garland in the hand of thy God. From this time forth thou shalt never be called the forsaken, and thy land shall no more be called the wilderness. But thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beula: for the LORD loveth thee, and thy land shall be inhabited. And like as a young man taketh a daughter to marriage, so shall God marry himself unto thy sons. And as a bridegroom is glad of his bride, so shall God rejoice over thee.
¶ I will set watchmen upon thy walls, (O Ierusalem) which shall neither cease day or night to preach the LORD. And ye also shall not keep him close, nor leave to speak of him, until Ierusalem be set up, and made the praise of the world. The LORD hath sworn by his right hand and by his strong arm, that from hence forth he will not give thee corn to be meat for thine enemies, nor thy vine (wherein thou hast laboured) to be drink for the strangers. But they that have gathered in the corn, shall eat it, and give thanks to the LORD: and they that have born in the vine, shall drink it in the court of my Sanctuary.
¶ Stond back, and depart a sunder, ye that stond under the gate: make room ye people, repair the street, and take away the stones, and set out a token for the people. Behold, the LORD proclaimeth in the ends of the world: Tell the daughter Sion: see, thy salvation cometh, behold, he bringeth his treasure with him, and his works go before him. For they whom the LORD delivereth, shall be called the holy people: and as for thee, thou shalt be named the greatly occupied, and not the forsaken.
