62 I will not keep silent because of Zion,

and I will not keep still because of Jerusalem,q

until her righteousness shines like a bright lightr

and her salvation, like a flaming torch.

Nations will see your righteousnesss

and all kings, your glory.

You will be given a new name

that the Lord’s mouth will announce.t

You will be a glorious crown in the Lord’s hand,

and a royal diadem in the palm of your God’s hand.u

You will no longer be called Deserted,v

and your land will not be called Desolate;

instead, you will be called My Delight Is in Her,D

and your land Married;E,w

for the Lord delights in you,

and your land will be married.

For as a young man marries a young woman,

so your sons will marry you;

and as a groom rejoices over his bride,

so your God will rejoice over you.x


I have appointed watchmen on your walls;a

they will never be silent, day or night.

There is no rest for you,

who remind the Lord.

Do not give him rest

until he establishes and makes Jerusalem

the praise of the earth.b

The Lord has sworn with his right hand

and his strong arm:

I will no longer give your grain

to your enemies for food,c

and foreigners will not drink the new wine

for which you have labored.

For those who gather grain will eat it

and praise the Lord,

and those who harvest the grapes will drink the wine

in my holy courts.

10 Go out, go out through the city gates;

prepare a way for the people!

Build it up, build up the highway;d

clear away the stones!

Raise a banner for the peoples.e

11 Look, the Lord has proclaimed

to the ends of the earth,

“Say to Daughter Zion:f

Look, your salvation is coming,

his wages are with him,g

and his reward accompanies him.”

12 And they will be calledA the Holy People,h

the Lord’s Redeemed;

and you will be called Cared For,

A City Not Deserted.


About Christian Standard Bible

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.

The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.

The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.

The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
