The Lord Takes Delight in Zion

62:1 “For the sake of Zion I will not be silent;

for the sake of Jerusalem 1  I will not be quiet,

until her vindication shines brightly 2 

and her deliverance burns like a torch.”

they should keep praying all day and all night. 4 

You who pray to 5  the Lord, don’t be silent!

until he makes Jerusalem the pride 7  of the earth.
