And you shall be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord will name...You shall be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord...You shall no longer be termed forsaken...You shall be called Hephzibath and your land Beulah, for the Lord delights in you.” (The name “Hephzibath” is an ancient Hebrew name meaning: “My delight is in her.”. The name “Beulah” means: “The land shall be married.”)
