Assurance of Zion’s Salvation

62 For Zion’s sake I will not 1hold My peace,

And for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest,

Until her righteousness goes forth as brightness,

And her salvation as a lamp that burns.

2 aThe Gentiles shall see your righteousness,

And all bkings your glory.

cYou shall be called by a new name,

Which the mouth of the Lord will name.

3 You shall also be da crown of glory

In the hand of the Lord,

And a royal diadem

In the hand of your God.

4 eYou shall no longer be termed fForsaken, 2

Nor shall your land any more be termed gDesolate; 3

But you shall be called 4Hephzibah, and your land 5Beulah;

For the Lord delights in you,

And your land shall be married.

5 For as a young man marries a virgin,

So shall your sons marry you;

And as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,

hSo shall your God rejoice over you.

6 iI have set watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem;

They shall 6never hold their peace day or night.

You who 7make mention of the Lord, do not keep silent,

7 And give Him no rest till He establishes

And till He makes Jerusalem ja praise in the earth.

8 The Lord has sworn by His right hand

And by the arm of His strength:

“Surely I will no longer kgive your grain

As food for your enemies;

And the sons of the foreigner shall not drink your new wine,

For which you have labored.

9 But those who have gathered it shall eat it,

And praise the Lord;

Those who have brought it together shall drink it lin My holy courts.”

10 Go through,

Go through the gates!

mPrepare the way for the people;

Build up,

Build up the highway!

Take out the stones,

nLift up a banner for the peoples!

11 Indeed the Lord has proclaimed

To the end of the world:

o“Say to the daughter of Zion,

‘Surely your salvation is coming;

Behold, His preward is with Him,

And His 8work before Him.’ ”

12 And they shall call them The Holy People,

The Redeemed of the Lord;

And you shall be called Sought Out,

A City Not Forsaken.


About The New King James Version

The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
