The Glory of Zion

60 “Arise,d shine, for your lighte has come,

and the gloryf of the Lord rises upon you.

See, darknessg covers the earth

and thick darknessh is over the peoples,

but the Lord rises upon you

and his glory appears over you.

Nationsi will come to your light,j

and kingsk to the brightness of your dawn.

“Lift up your eyes and look about you:

All assemblel and come to you;

your sons come from afar,m

and your daughtersn are carried on the hip.o

Then you will look and be radiant,p

your heart will throb and swell with joy;q

the wealthr on the seas will be brought to you,

to you the riches of the nations will come.

Herds of camelss will cover your land,

young camels of Midiant and Ephah.u

And all from Shebav will come,

bearing gold and incensew

and proclaiming the praisex of the Lord.

All Kedar’sy flocks will be gathered to you,

the rams of Nebaioth will serve you;

they will be accepted as offeringsz on my altar,a

and I will adorn my glorious temple.b

“Who are thesec that fly along like clouds,d

like doves to their nests?

Surely the islandse look to me;

in the lead are the ships of Tarshish,a f

bringingg your children from afar,

with their silver and gold,h

to the honori of the Lord your God,

the Holy Onej of Israel,

for he has endowed you with splendor.k

10 “Foreignersl will rebuild your walls,

and their kingsm will serve you.

Though in anger I struck you,

in favorn I will show you compassion.o

11 Your gatesp will always stand open,

they will never be shut, day or night,

so that people may bring you the wealth of the nationsq

their kingsr led in triumphal procession.

12 For the nation or kingdom that will not serves you will perish;

it will be utterly ruined.t

13 “The glory of Lebanonu will come to you,

the juniper, the fir and the cypress together,v

to adorn my sanctuary;w

and I will glorify the place for my feet.x

14 The children of your oppressorsy will come bowing before you;

all who despise you will bow downz at your feet

and will call you the Citya of the Lord,

Zionb of the Holy Onec of Israel.

15 “Although you have been forsakend and hated,

with no one travelinge through,

I will make you the everlasting pridef

and the joyg of all generations.

16 You will drink the milk of nations

and be nursedh at royal breasts.

Then you will knowi that I, the Lord, am your Savior,j

your Redeemer,k the Mighty One of Jacob.l

17 Instead of bronze I will bring you gold,m

and silver in place of iron.

Instead of wood I will bring you bronze,

and iron in place of stones.

I will make peacen your governor

and well-being your ruler.o

18 No longer will violencep be heard in your land,

nor ruin or destructionq within your borders,

but you will call your walls Salvationr

and your gates Praise.s

19 The sun will no more be your light by day,

nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you,

for the Lord will be your everlasting light,t

and your God will be your glory.u

20 Your sunv will never set again,

and your moon will wane no more;

the Lord will be your everlasting light,

and your days of sorroww will end.

21 Then all your people will be righteousx

and they will possessy the land forever.

They are the shoot I have planted,z

the work of my hands,a

for the display of my splendor.b

22 The least of you will become a thousand,

the smallest a mighty nation.c

I am the Lord;

in its time I will do this swiftly.”d

The Year of the Lord’s Favor

61 The Spirite of the Sovereign Lordf is on me,

because the Lord has anointedg me

to proclaim good newsh to the poor.i

He has sent me to bind upj the brokenhearted,

to proclaim freedomk for the captivesl

and release from darkness for the prisoners,a

to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favorm

and the day of vengeancen of our God,

to comforto all who mourn,p

3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion—

to bestow on them a crownq of beauty

instead of ashes,r

the oils of joy

instead of mourning,t

and a garment of praise

instead of a spirit of despair.

They will be called oaks of righteousness,

a plantingu of the Lord

for the display of his splendor.v

They will rebuild the ancient ruinsw

and restore the places long devastated;

they will renew the ruined cities

that have been devastated for generations.

Strangersx will shepherd your flocks;

foreigners will work your fields and vineyards.

And you will be called priestsy of the Lord,

you will be named ministers of our God.

You will feed on the wealthz of nations,

and in their riches you will boast.

Instead of your shamea

you will receive a doubleb portion,

and instead of disgrace

you will rejoice in your inheritance.

And so you will inheritc a double portion in your land,

and everlasting joyd will be yours.

“For I, the Lord, love justice;e

I hate robbery and wrongdoing.

In my faithfulness I will reward my people

and make an everlasting covenantf with them.

Their descendantsg will be known among the nations

and their offspring among the peoples.

All who see them will acknowledge

that they are a people the Lord has blessed.”h

10 I delight greatly in the Lord;

my soul rejoicesi in my God.

For he has clothed me with garments of salvation

and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,j

as a bridegroom adorns his headk like a priest,

and as a bridel adorns herself with her jewels.

11 For as the soil makes the sprout come up

and a gardenm causes seeds to grow,

so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousnessn

and praise spring up before all nations.

Zion’s New Name

62 For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent,o

for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet,

till her vindicationp shines out like the dawn,q

her salvationr like a blazing torch.

The nationss will see your vindication,

and all kings your glory;

you will be called by a new namet

that the mouth of the Lord will bestow.

You will be a crownu of splendor in the Lord’s hand,

a royal diadem in the hand of your God.

No longer will they call you Deserted,v

or name your land Desolate.w

But you will be called Hephzibah,a x

and your land Beulahb;

for the Lord will take delighty in you,

and your land will be married.z

As a young man marries a young woman,

so will your Builder marry you;

as a bridegrooma rejoices over his bride,

so will your God rejoiceb over you.

I have posted watchmenc on your walls, Jerusalem;

they will never be silent day or night.

You who call on the Lord,

give yourselves no rest,d

and give him no reste till he establishes Jerusalem

and makes her the praisef of the earth.
