Isaiah 61

The Book of the Prophet Isaiah



For Zion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until her righteousness go forth as brightness, and her salvation as a lamp that burneth.


And the nations shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory, and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of YAHUVEH shall name.


Thou shalt also be a crown of beauty in the hand of YAHUVEH, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy YAHUVEH.


Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzi-bah, and thy land Beulah; for YAHUVEH delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.


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 YAHUVEH rejoice over thee.


I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem; they shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that are YAHUVEH's remembrancers, take ye no rest,


and give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.


YAHUVEH hath sworn by his right hand, and by the arm of his strength, Surely I will no more give thy grain to be food for thine enemies; and foreigners shall not drink thy new wine, for which thou hast labored:


but they that have garnered it shall eat it, and praise YAHUVEH; and they that have gathered it shall drink it in the courts of my sanctuary.


Go through, go through the gates; prepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up an ensign for the peoples.


Behold, YAHUVEH hath proclaimed unto the end of the earth, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him.


And they shall call them The holy people, The redeemed of YAHUVEH: and thou shalt be called Sought out, A city not forsaken.
