First Reading

Isaiah 62,1-5

About Zion I will not be silent, about Jerusalem I shall not rest until saving justice dawns for her like a bright light and her salvation like a blazing torch.

The nations will then see your saving justice, and all kings your glory, and you will be called a new name which Yahweh's mouth will reveal.

You will be a crown of splendour in Yahweh's hand, a princely diadem in the hand of your God.

No more will you be known as 'Forsaken' or your country be known as 'Desolation'; instead, you will be called 'My Delight is in her' and your country 'The Wedded'; for Yahweh will take delight in you and your country will have its wedding.

Like a young man marrying a virgin, your rebuilder will wed you, and as the bridegroom rejoices in his bride, so will your God rejoice in you.
