Old Testament - Second Sunday after Epiphany
Isaiah 62.1-5

For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent,
     and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest,
until her vindication shines out like the dawn,
     and her salvation like a burning torch.
The nations shall see your vindication,
     and all the kings your glory;
and you shall be called by a new name
     that the mouth of the Lord will give.
You shall be a crown of beauty in the hand of the Lord ,
     and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
You shall no more be termed Forsaken,
     and your land shall no more be termed Desolate;
but you shall be called My Delight Is in Her,
     and your land Married;
for the Lord delights in you,
     and your land shall be married.
For as a young man marries a young woman,
     so shall your builder marry you,
and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,
     so shall your God rejoice over you.
