60 Revised Standard Version Passage

1Arise, shine; for your light has come,
and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you.
The future glory of Jerusalem. Is.60.1-22
2For behold, darkness shall cover the earth,
and thick darkness the peoples;
but the LORD will arise upon you,
and his glory will be seen upon you.
 
3And nations shall come to your light,
and kings to the brightness of your rising.
 
4Lift up your eyes round about, and see;
they all gather together, they come to you;
your sons shall come from far,
and your daughters shall be carried in the arms.
 
5Then you shall see and be radiant,
your heart shall thrill and rejoice; Heb: be enlarged
because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you,
the wealth of the nations shall come to you.
 
6A multitude of camels shall cover you,
the young camels of Mid'ian and Ephah;
all those from Sheba shall come.
They shall bring gold and frankincense,
and shall proclaim the praise of the LORD.
 
7All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered to you,
the rams of Nebai'oth shall minister to you;
they shall come up with acceptance on my altar,
and I will glorify my glorious house.
 
8Who are these that fly like a cloud,
and like doves to their windows?
 
9For the coastlands shall wait for me,
the ships of Tarshish first,
to bring your sons from far,
their silver and gold with them,
for the name of the LORD your God,
and for the Holy One of Israel,
because he has glorified you.
 
10Foreigners shall build up your walls,
and their kings shall minister to you;
for in my wrath I smote you,
but in my favor I have had mercy on you.
 
11Your gates shall be open continually;
day and night they shall not be shut;
that men may bring to you the wealth of the nations,
with their kings led in procession.
 
12For the nation and kingdom that
will not serve you shall perish;
those nations shall be utterly laid waste.
 
13The glory of Lebanon shall come to you,
the cypress, the plane, and the pine,
to beautify the place of my sanctuary;
and I will make the place of my feet glorious.
 
14The sons of those who oppressed you
shall come bending low to you;
and all who despised you
shall bow down at your feet;
they shall call you the City of the LORD,
the Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
 
15Whereas you have been forsaken and hated,
with no one passing through,
I will make you majestic for ever,
a joy from age to age.
 
16You shall suck the milk of nations,
you shall suck the breast of kings;
and you shall know that I, the LORD, am your Saviour
and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.
 
17Instead of bronze I will bring gold,
and instead of iron I will bring silver;
instead of wood, bronze, instead of stones, iron.
I will make your overseers peace
and your taskmasters righteousness.
 
18Violence shall no more be heard in your land,
devastation or destruction within your borders;
you shall call your walls Salvation,
and your gates Praise.
 
19The sun shall be no more your light by day,
nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you by night; One ancient Ms Gk Old Latin Tg: Heb lacks: by night
but the LORD will be your everlasting light,
and your God will be your glory.
 
20Your sun shall no more go down,
nor your moon withdraw itself;
for the LORD will be your everlasting light,
and your days of mourning shall be ended.
 
21Your people shall all be righteous;
they shall possess the land for ever,
the shoot of my planting,
the work of my hands,
that I might be glorified.
 
22The least one shall become a clan,
and the smallest one a mighty nation;
I am the LORD;
in its time I will hasten it.
