February 13: Restoration of the land

It is well understood that the people of Israel are in a unique relationship with God.    But here we see that this relationship is not only with the people, but also with the land.

Isaiah 62:1-4

For Zion’s sake I will not hold My peace, 
and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, 
until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, 
and her salvation as a lamp that burns.

The Gentiles shall see your righteousness, 
and all kings your glory. 
You shall be called by a new name, 
which the mouth of the Lord will name.

You shall also be a crown of glory
in the hand of the Lord, 
and a royal diadem 
in the hand of your God.

You shall no longer be termed Forsaken, 
nor shall your land any more be termed Desolate; 
but you shall be called Hephzibah [My delight is in her], and your land Beulah [married]; 
for the Lord delights in you, 
and your land shall be married.
