For Zion's Sake
For Zion's sake I will not keep silent, and for Jerusalem's
sake I will not rest, until her vindication shines out like the
dawn, and her salvation like a burning torch. 2 The nations shall
see your vindication, and all the kings your glory; and you shall
be called by a new name that the mouth of the LORD will give.
3 You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the LORD, and
a royal diadem in the hand of your God. 4 You 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.
5 For as a young man marries a young woman, so shall your builder
marry you, and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall
your God rejoice over you.
This passage repeats verses 1-3 but adds 4 and 5. It's a good
thing to move up from being called "forsaken" and "desolate"
to "My Delight Is in Her" and "Married." Jerusalem's
new relationship with God is compared to a marriage, meaning it
is closer than ever. Even when prophets get to tell the good news
the audience can be tough.
