1For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not be quiet, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a burning torch. (Pr 4:18; Isa 62:6)2The nations shall see your righteousness, and all the kings your glory, and you shall be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will give. (Ps 98:2; Isa 60:3; Isa 60:14; Re 2:17; Re 3:12)3You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God. (Isa 54:11; Zec 9:16)4You shall no more be termed Forsaken, and your land shall no more be termed Desolate, but you shall be called My Delight Is in Her, and your land Married; for the Lord delights in you, and your land shall be married. (Isa 49:14; Isa 54:1; Isa 54:6; Isa 54:7; Isa 60:15; Isa 62:2; Ho 1:10; Mal 3:12; 1Pe 2:10)5For as a young man marries a young woman, so shall your sons marry you, and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you. (Isa 51:18; Isa 65:19)6On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have set watchmen; all the day and all the night they shall never be silent. You who put the Lord in remembrance, take no rest, (Isa 52:8; Isa 56:10)7and give him no rest until he establishes Jerusalem and makes it a praise in the earth. (Isa 60:18; Isa 61:11; Zep 3:20)8The Lord has sworn by his right hand and by his mighty arm: “I will not again give your grain to be food for your enemies, and foreigners shall not drink your wine for which you have labored; (De 28:33; Isa 65:21; Jer 5:17; Heb 6:13)9but those who garner it shall eat it and praise the Lord, and those who gather it shall drink it in the courts of my sanctuary.” (De 12:12; De 14:23; De 14:26)10Go through, go through the gates; prepare the way for the people; build up, build up the highway; clear it of stones; lift up a signal over the peoples. (Isa 11:10; Isa 40:3; Isa 49:22; Isa 57:14)11Behold, the Lord has proclaimed to the end of the earth: Say to the daughter of Zion, “Behold, your salvation comes; behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him.” (Isa 40:10; Zec 9:9; Mt 21:5; Joh 12:15)12And they shall be called The Holy People, The Redeemed of the Lord; and you shall be called Sought Out, A City Not Forsaken. (Isa 61:4; Isa 61:6; Isa 62:4)
New International Version
Zion’s New Name
1For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet, till her vindication shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch.2The nations will see your vindication, and all kings your glory; you will be called by a new name that the mouth of the Lord will bestow.3You will be a crown of splendor in the Lord’s hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God.4No longer will they call you Deserted, or name your land Desolate. But you will be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah; for the Lord will take delight in you, and your land will be married.5As a young man marries a young woman, so will your Builder marry you; as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you.6I have posted watchmen on your walls, Jerusalem; they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest,7and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth.8The Lord has sworn by his right hand and by his mighty arm: “Never again will I give your grain as food for your enemies, and never again will foreigners drink the new wine for which you have toiled;9but those who harvest it will eat it and praise the Lord, and those who gather the grapes will drink it in the courts of my sanctuary.”10Pass through, pass through the gates! Prepare the way for the people. Build up, build up the highway! Remove the stones. Raise a banner for the nations.11The Lord has made proclamation to the ends of the earth: “Say to Daughter Zion, ‘See, your Savior comes! See, his reward is with him, and his recompense accompanies him.’ ”12They will be called the Holy People, the Redeemed of the Lord; and you will be called Sought After, the City No Longer Deserted.
King James Version
1For Zion' sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem' sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.2And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.3Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.4Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.5For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.6I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence,7And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.8The LORD hath sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength, Surely I 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:9But 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.10Go 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.11Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.12And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken.
New Int. Readers Version
The Lord Gives Zion a New Name
1The Lord says, “For the good of Zion I will not keep silent. For Jerusalem's benefit I will not remain quiet. I will not keep silent until its people's godliness shines like the sunrise. I will not remain quiet until they are saved and shine like a blazing torch.2Jerusalem, the nations will see that I have made everything right for you. All of their kings will see your glory. You will be called by a new name. I myself will give it to you.3You will be like a glorious crown in my strong hand. You will be like a royal crown in my powerful hand.4People will not call you Deserted anymore. They will no longer name your land Empty. Instead, you will be called The One the Lord Delights In. Your land will be named The Married One. I will take delight in you. And your land will be like a bride.5As a young man gets married to a young woman, your people will marry you. As a groom is happy with his bride, I will be full of joy over you.”6Jerusalem, I have stationed guards on your walls. They must never be silent day or night. You who call out to the Lord must not give yourselves any rest.7And don't give him any rest until he makes Jerusalem secure. Don't give him any peace until people all over the earth praise that city.8The Lord has taken an oath and made a promise. He has lifted up his right hand and mighty arm. He has promised, “I will never give your grain to your enemies for food again. Outsiders will never again drink the fresh wine you have worked so hard for.9Instead, those who gather the grain will eat it themselves. And they will praise me. Those who gather grapes to make the wine will enjoy it. They will drink it in the courtyards of my temple.”10Go out through your gates, people of Jerusalem! Go out! Prepare the way for the rest of your people to return. Build up the road! Build it up! Remove the stones. Raise a banner over the city for the nations to see.11The Lord has announced a message from one end of the earth to the other. He has said, “Tell the people of Zion, ‘Look! Your Savior is coming! He is bringing his people back as his reward. He has won the battle over their enemies.’ ”12They will be called The Holy People. The Lord will set them free. And Jerusalem will be named The City the Lord Cares About. It won't be deserted anymore.
