Isaiah 62:2-4 New English Translation (NET Bible)

Nations will see your vindication,
and all kings your splendor.
You will be called by a new name
that the Lord himself will give you.[a]
You will be a majestic crown in the hand of the Lord,
a royal turban in the hand of your God.
You will no longer be called, “Abandoned,”
and your land will no longer be called “Desolate.”
Indeed,[b] you will be called “My Delight is in Her,”[c]
and your land “Married.”[d]
For the Lord will take delight in you,
and your land will be married to him.[e]
