1 Because I love Zion,
I will not keep still.
Because my heart yearns for Jerusalem,
I cannot remain silent.
I will not stop praying for her
until her righteousness shines like the dawn,
and her salvation blazes like a burning torch.
World leaders will be blinded by your glory.
And you will be given a new name
by the Lord’s own mouth.
a splendid crown in the hand of God.
4 Never again will you be called “The Forsaken City”*
or “The Desolate Land.”*
Your new name will be “The City of God’s Delight”*
and “The Bride of God,”*
for the Lord delights in you
and will claim you as his bride.
just as a young man commits himself to his bride.
Then God will rejoice over you
as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride.
