Isaiah 60

1Arise, shine; for thy light is come,
And the glory of Jehovah is risen upon thee.
2For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And thick darkness the people;
But upon thee shall Jehovah arise,
And his glory shall be seen upon thee.
3And the nations shall come to thy light,
And kings to the brightness of thy rising.
4Lift up thine eyes round about, and see:
They are all of them gathered together, they come to thee:
Thy sons shall come from far,
And thy daughters shall be carried at the side,
5Then shalt thou look, and overflow with joy;
And thy heart shall throb, and become dilated,
When the riches of the sea shall be converted unto thee,
And the wealth of the nations shall come unto thee.
6A multitude of camels shall cover thee,
The dromedaries of Midian and Epha;
All those of Sheba shall come:
They shall bring gold and frankincense,
And proclaim the praise of Jehovah.
7All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together unto thee,
The rams of Nebaioth shall minister unto thee;
They shall come up with acceptance on mine altar,
And the house of my glory I will render glorious.
8Who are these that fly as a cloud?
And like doves to their holes?
9Surely, the isles shall wait for me,
And the ships of Tarshish among the first;
To bring thy sons from afar,
Their silver and their gold with them:
Because of the name of Jehovah thy God,
And because of the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee.
10And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls,
And their kings shall minister unto thee:
For in my wrath I smote thee,
But in my favour have I had mercy on thee.
11Therefore thy gates shall be open continually;
They shall not be shut by day nor by night;
That unto thee might be brought the wealth of the nations,
And their kings royally attended.
12For the nations and the kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish;
Yea, those nations shall be utterly destroyed.
13The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee,
The fir-tree, the pine, and the box together;
To beautify the place of my sanctuary;
And I will make the place of my feet glorious.
14The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee;
And all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet;
And they shall call thee, The City of Jehovah;
The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
15Instead of thy being forsaken and hated,
So that no one passeth through thee;
I will make thee ad eternal excellency,
A joy of successive generations.
16Thou shalt also suck the milk of the nations,
And shalt suck the breast of kings:
And thou shalt know that I Jehovah am thy Saviour,
And thy Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.
17Instead of brass, I will bring gold;
And instead of iron, I will bring silver:
And instead of wood, brass;
And instead of stones, iron:
And I will make thy officers peace,
And thine exactors righteousness.
18Violence shall no more be heard in thy land,
Destruction or ruin, within thy borders;
But thou shalt call thy walk Salvation,
And thy gates Praise.
19The sun shall no more be for light unto thee by day,
Neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee;
For Jehovah shall be unto thee an everlasting light,
And thy God thy glory.
20Thy sun shall no more go down,
Neither shall thy moon withdraw itself;
For Jehovah shall be unto thee an everlasting light,
And the days of thy mourning shall be ended.
21Thy people also shall be all righteous;
They shall inherit the land for ever,
The branch of my planting, the work of my hands,
That I may be glorified.
22The little one shall become a thousand,
And the small one a strong nation:
I Jehovah will hasten it in its time.

Yeshayah (Isaiah) 60

4“Lift up your eyes all around and see: all of them have gathered, they have come to you; your sons come from afar, and your daughters are supported on the side.

8“Who are these who fly like a cloud, and like doves to their windows?
9“Because the coastlands wait for Me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring your sons from afar, their silver and their gold with them, to the Name of יהוה your Elohim, and to the Set-apart One of Yisra’ĕl, because He has adorned you.
10“And the sons of foreigners shall build your walls, and their sovereigns serve you. For in My wrath I have stricken you, but in My delight I shall have compassion on you.
11“And your gates shall be open continually, they are not shut day or night, to bring to you the wealth of the nations, and their sovereigns in procession.
12“For the nation and the reign that do not serve you shall perish, and those nations shall be utterly laid waste.
13“The esteem of Leḇanon shall come to you, cypress, pine, and the box tree together, to embellish the place of My set-apart place. And I shall make the place of My feet esteemed.

20“No longer does your sun go down, nor your moon withdraw itself, for יהוה shall be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended.

22“The little shall become a thousand, and the small one a strong nation.#See Isa. 41:14; Dan. 2:34-44 I, יהוה, shall hasten it in its time.”
