Isaiah 60

60:1 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the
 LORD is risen upon thee.
60:2 For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross
 darkness the people: but the LORD will arise upon thee, and his
 glory will be seen upon thee.
60:3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the
 brightness of thy rising.
60:4 Lift up thy eyes around, and see: all they assemble
 themselves, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far,
 and thy daughters shall be nursed at [thy] side.
60:5 Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thy heart shall
 fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall
 be converted to thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come to
60:6 The multitude of camels shall cover thee, the dromedaries
 of Midian and Ephah; all they from Sheba shall come: they shall
 bring gold and incense; and they shall show forth the praises
 of the LORD.
60:7 All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered to thee, the rams
 of Nebaioth shall minister to thee: they shall come up with
 acceptance on my altar, and I will glorify the house of my
60:8 Who [are] these [that] fly as a cloud, and as doves to
 their windows?
60:9 Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of
 Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and
 their gold with them, to the name of the LORD thy God, and to
 the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee.
60:10 And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and
 their kings shall minister to thee: for in my wrath I smote
 thee, but in my favor have I had mercy on thee.
60:11 Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall
 not be shut day nor night; that [men] may bring to thee the
 forces of the Gentiles, and [that] their kings [may be]
60:12 For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall
 perish; yes, [those] nations shall be utterly wasted.
60:13 The glory of Lebanon shall come to thee, the fir-tree, the
 pine-tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of my
 sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious.
60:14 The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come
 bending to 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 the LORD, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
60:15 Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man
 went through [thee], I will make thee an eternal excellence, a
 joy of many generations.
60:16 Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt
 suck the breast of kings: and thou shalt know that I the LORD
 [am] thy Savior and thy Redeemer, the mighty one of Jacob.
60:17 For brass I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring
 silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron: I will also
 make thy officers peace, and thy exactors righteousness.
60:18 Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor
 destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls
 Salvation, and thy gates Praise.
60:19 The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for
 brightness shall the moon give light to thee: but the LORD will
 be to thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory.
60:20 Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon
 withdraw itself: for the LORD will be thy everlasting light,
 and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.
60:21 Thy 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.
60:22 A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a
 strong nation: I the LORD will hasten it in its time.
