Isaiah 60:1 - 60:14

A Glorified Zion

“Arise, shine, for your light has come,
And the glory of Yahweh has risen upon you.
For behold, darkness will cover the earth
And dense gloom the peoples;
But Yahweh will rise upon you,
And His glory will appear upon you.
Nations will come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising.

“Lift up your eyes round about and see;
They all gather together; they come to you.
Your sons will come from afar,
And your daughters will be carried on the nurses’ hip.
Then you will see and be radiant,
And your heart will tremble and be large with joy;
Because the abundance of the sea will be turned to you,
The wealth of the nations will come to you.
A multitude of camels will cover you,
The young camels of Midian and Ephah;
All those from Sheba will come;
They will bring gold and frankincense,
And will bear good news of the praises of Yahweh.
All the flocks of Kedar will be gathered together to you;
The rams of Nebaioth will minister to you;
They will go up with acceptance on My altar,
And I shall adorn My glorious house with beautiful glory.
Who are these who fly like a cloud
And like the doves to their lattices?
Surely the coastlands will hope in Me;
And the ships of Tarshish will come first,
To bring your sons from afar,
Their silver and their gold with them,
For the name of Yahweh your God,
And for the Holy One of Israel because He has adorned you with beautiful glory.

“Foreigners will build up your walls,
And their kings will minister to you;
For in My wrath I struck you,
And in My favor I have had compassion on you.
Your gates will be open continually;
They will not be closed day or night,
So that men may bring to you the wealth of the nations,
With their kings led in procession.
For the nation and the kingdom which will not serve you will perish,
And the nations will surely be laid waste.
The glory of Lebanon will come to you,
The juniper, the box tree, and the cypress together,
To adorn the place of My sanctuary with beautiful glory;
And I shall make the place of My feet glorious.
The sons of those who afflicted you will come bowing to you,
And all those who spurned you will bow themselves at the soles of your feet;
And they will call you the City of Yahweh,
The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
