Isaiah 60

A Glorified Zion

a Arise, shine; for your b light has come,
And the c glory of the  Lord has risen upon you.
For behold d darkness will cover the earth
And deep darkness the peoples;
But the  Lord will rise upon you
And His e glory will appear upon you.
f Nations will come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising.

g Lift up your eyes round about and see;
They all gather together, they h come to you.
Your sons will come from afar,
And your i daughters will be
Lit nursed upon the side
carried in the arms.
Then you will see and be k radiant,
And your heart will
Lit tremble and be enlarged
thrill and rejoice;
Because the m abundance of the sea will be turned to you,
The n wealth of the nations will come to you.
A multitude of camels will cover you,
The young camels of Midian and o Ephah;
All those from p Sheba will come;
They will bring q gold and frankincense,
And will r bear good news of the praises of the  Lord.
All the flocks of s Kedar will be gathered together to you,
The rams of Nebaioth will minister to you;
They will go up with acceptance on My t altar,
And I shall
Or beautify
v glorify My
Or beautiful
glorious house.
x Who are these who fly like a cloud
And like the doves to their
Or dovecotes, windows
Surely the z coastlands will wait for Me;
And the aa ships of Tarshish will come first,
To ab bring your sons from afar,
Their silver and their gold with them,
For the name of the  Lord your God,
And for the Holy One of Israel because He has
Lit beautified
ad glorified you.

10  ae Foreigners will build up your walls,
And their af kings will minister to you;
For in My ag wrath I struck you,
And in My favor I have had compassion on you.
11 “Your ah gates will be open continually;
They will not be closed day or night,
So that men may ai bring to you the wealth of the nations,
With aj their kings led in procession.
12 “For the ak nation and the kingdom which will not serve you will perish,
And the nations will be utterly ruined.
13 “The al glory of Lebanon will come to you,
The am juniper, the box tree and the cypress together,
To beautify the place of My sanctuary;
And I shall make the an place of My feet glorious.
14 “The ao sons of those who afflicted you will come bowing to you,
And all those who despised you will bow themselves at the soles of your feet;
And they will call you the ap city of the  Lord,
The aq Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

15 Whereas you have been ar forsaken and as hated
With no one passing through,
I will make you an everlasting at pride,
A joy from generation to generation.
16 “You will also au suck the milk of nations
And suck the breast of kings;
Then you will know that I, the  Lord, am your av Savior
And your aw Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.
17 Instead of bronze I will bring gold,
And instead of iron I will bring silver,
And instead of wood, bronze,
And instead of stones, iron.
And I will make peace your administrators
And righteousness your overseers.
18  ax Violence will not be heard again in your land,
Nor ay devastation or destruction within your borders;
But you will call your az walls salvation, and your ba gates praise.
19 No longer will you have the bb sun for light by day,
Nor for brightness will the moon give you light;
But you will have the bc  Lord for an everlasting light,
And your bd God for your
Or beauty
20 “Your bf sun will no longer set,
Nor will your moon wane;
For you will have the  Lord for an everlasting light,
And the days of your bg mourning will be over.
21 Then all your bh people will be righteous;
They will bi possess the land forever,
The branch of
Lit His
My planting,
The bk work of My hands,
That I may be bl glorified.
22 “The bm smallest one will become a
Or thousand
And the least one a mighty nation.
I, the  Lord, will hasten it in its time.”
