Isaiah 62:4-5; Hosea 2:7

tYou shall no more be termed uForsaken,1

and your land shall no more be termed Desolate,2

rbut you shall be called vMy Delight Is in Her,3

and your land Married;4

for the Lord delights in you,

and your land shall be married.

For as a young man marries a young woman,

so wshall your sons marry you,

and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,

so xshall your God rejoice over you.


She shall pursue her lovers

but not overtake them,

and she shall seek them

but shall not find them.

lThen she shall say,

I will go and return to mmy first husband,

lfor it was better for me then than now.
