Here Comes The Bride!

 Isaiah 62:1-5 (NIV)

62     For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent,

for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet,

till her righteousness shines out like the dawn,

her salvation like a blazing torch.

2     The nations will see your righteousness,

and all kings your glory;

you will be called by a new name

that the mouth of the Lord will bestow.

3     You will be a crown of splendor in the Lord’s hand,

a royal diadem in the hand of your God.

4     No longer will they call you Deserted,

or name your land Desolate.

But you will be called Hephzibah,a

and your land Beulahb;

for the Lord will take delight in you,

and your land will be married.

5     As a young man marries a maiden,

so will your sonsc marry you;

as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride,

so will your God rejoice over you. [1]
