Isaiah 60


The Glory of The LORD upon Jerusalem

1Be enlightened! Be enlightened, O Jerusalem! [4is come 1for 2your 3light], and the glory of the  lord [2upon 3you 1has risen]. 2Behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and a dimness upon nations; [4upon 1but 5you 3shall appear 2the  lord], and his glory [2upon 3you 1shall be seen]. 3And [2shall go 1nations] by your light, and kings in your brightness. 4Lift [2round about 1your eyes], and behold [3gathering together 1all 2your children]! [3come 1All 2your sons] from far off, and your daughters [2upon 3shoulders 1shall be carried]. 5Then you shall see, and shall be fearful, and shall be startled in the heart; for [3shall turn 4unto 5you 1the riches 2of the sea], and of nations, and of peoples; and they shall come to you. 6Herds of camels, and [5shall cover 6you 1camels 2of Midian 3and 4Ephah]; [2all 4from out of 5Sheba 1they 3come] bringing gold and frankincense; and [2the 3deliverance 4of the  lord 1they shall announce as good news]. 7And all the sheep of Kedar shall be gathered together to you, and rams of Nebaioth shall come to you; and [2shall be offered 1acceptable sacrifices] upon my altar, and the house of my prayer shall be glorified. 8Who thus as clouds fly, even as doves with young? 9[3for me 1Islands 2waited], and boats of Tarshish are among the first to lead your children from far off, and [2silver 3and 4gold 1their] is with them, on account of the [2name 3of the  lord 1holy], and on account of the holy one of Israel to be glorious. 10And [2shall build 1foreigners] your walls, and their kings shall stand beside you. For on account of my anger I struck you, and on account of mercy I loved you. 11And [2shall be open 1your gates] continually; day and night they shall not be locked; to bring in to you the force of nations, and their kings leading. 12For the nations and the kings which will not serve to you shall perish; and the nations [3unto desolation 1shall be made desolate]. 13And the glory of Lebanon [2to 3you 1shall come] with cypress and pine and cedar together, to glorify [2place 1my holy]. And the place of their feet I will glorify. 14And they shall go to you being in awe -- sons of the ones humbling you. And [5shall do obeisance at 6the 7soles 8of your feet 1all 2the ones who 3provoked 4you]. And you shall be called, City of the  lord, Zion of Holy Israel. 15Because you became abandoned and detested, and there was no one helping, even I will make you [2leap for joy 1an everlasting], a gladness to generations of generations. 16And you shall nurse milk of nations, and [2wealth 3of kings 1you shall eat]. And you shall know that I am the  lord, the one delivering you, and rescuing you -- the God of Jacob. 17And instead of brass, I shall bring to you gold; and instead of iron, I shall bring to you silver; and instead of wood, I shall bring to you brass; and instead of stones -- iron; and I shall appoint your rulers for peace, and your overseers for righteousness. 18And [2shall not 4be heard 3any longer 1injustice] in your land, nor destruction, nor misery within your borders. And [2shall be called 3Deliverance 1your walls], and your gates, Carving. 19And [3will not be 4to you 5any longer 1the 2sun] for the light of day, nor the rising moon shall give light to you at night. But [2will be 3to you 1the  lord 5light 4an eternal], even the God of your glory. 20[4shall not 1For 5go down 2the 3sun] to you, and the moon [3to you 1shall not 2subside]. [3will be 1For 4to you 2the  lord 6light 5an eternal]. And [4shall be fulfilled 1the 2days 3of your mourning]. 21And your people are all righteous, and [4through 5the eon 1they shall inherit 2the 3earth], keeping the thing planted, even the works of their hands for glory. 22The very few will be for thousands, and the least for [2nation 1a great]. I the  lord in due time shall gather them.
