Old Testament Isaiah Chapter 62
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12
In the last days, Israel shall be gathered-Zion shall be established-Her watchmen shall teach about the Lord-They shall lift the gospel standard-They shall be chosen and redeemed.
1 For Zion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.
2 And the Gentiles shall asee thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new bname, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.
3 Thou shalt also be a acrown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.
4 Thou shalt no more be termed aForsaken; neither shall thy bland any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called cHephzi -bah, and thy land dBeulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.
5 For 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 arejoice over thee.
6 I have set awatchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence,
7 And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a apraise in the earth.
8 The 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:
9 But 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 aholiness.
10 Go through, go through the gates; aprepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the bhighway; gather out the stones; lift up a cstandard for the people.
11 Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the aworld, Say ye to the bdaughter of Zion, Behold, thy csalvation cometh; behold, his dreward is with him, and his work before him.
12 And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken.
