    I know this refers to heaven, but why? Where'd it come from?

    TaterTot...

    I'm still looking around on the net...but I did a search on Biblegateway.com and it made one reference to "Beulah" in Isaiah 62:4.

    "No more will anyone call you Rejected, and your country will no more be called Ruined. You'll be called Hephzibah, (My Delight), and your land Beulah, (Married), because God delights in you and your land will be like a wedding celebration."

    Also, I found that in Pilgrim's Progress, "Beulah" was the name of the promised land.

    Peace-
    S.O.

    From the Concise King James Bible Dictionary

    Beulah: (married). A name for the land of Israel when Christ returns and blesses it (Isaiah 62:4). The land will then be married to Israel, and Israel to the Lord.

    Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married. (Isaiah 62:4)

    Hephzibah
    Heph'zi-bah.
    1. A name signifying "my delight in her," which is to be borne by the restored Jerusalem.

    Isa 62:4
    2. The queen of King Hezekiah and the mother of Manasseh.

    2Ki 21:1
    (B.C. 709-696.)

    Beulah
    Beu'lah
    (married), the name which the land of Israel is to bear when "the land shall be married."

    Isa 62:4

    Smith's Bible Dictionary

    Thanks Brother Bob! It's funny--we sing about Beulah Land in church and it has NOTHING to do with the Church and everything to do with Israel!!

    BTW--I am StandingfirminChrist's wife!
