60 Arise, shine, for your light has come,q

and the glory of the Lord shines over you.B,r

For look, darkness will cover the earth,

and total darkness the peoples;

but the Lord will shine over you,

and his glory will appear over you.

Nations will come to your light,

and kings to your shining brightness.s

Raise your eyes and look around:

they all gather and come to you;

your sons will come from far away,

and your daughters on the hips of nursing mothers.t

Then you will see and be radiant,u

and your heart will tremble and rejoice,C

because the riches of the sea will become yours

and the wealth of the nations will come to you.v

Caravans of camels will cover your landA

young camels of Midian and Ephah—

all of them will come from Sheba.a

They will carry gold and frankincenseb

and proclaim the praises of the Lord.

All the flocks of Kedar will be gathered to you;

the rams of Nebaioth will serve youc

and go up on my altar as an acceptable sacrifice.d

I will glorify my beautiful house.e

Who are these who fly like a cloud,

like doves to their shelters?f

Yes, the coasts and islands will wait for meg

with the ships of Tarshish in the lead,h

to bring your children from far away,i

their silver and gold with them,

for the honor of the Lord your God,

the Holy One of Israel,j

who has glorified you.k

10 Foreigners will rebuild your walls,l

and their kings will serve you.m

Although I struck you in my wrath,

yet I will show mercy to you with my favor.n

11 Your city gates will always be open;

they will never be shut day or night

so that the wealth of the nations

may be brought into you,o

with their kings being led in procession.

12 For the nation and the kingdom

that will not serve you will perish;

those nations will be annihilated.p

13 The glory of Lebanon will come to youq

its pine, elm, and cypress togetherr

to beautify the place of my sanctuary,

and I will glorify my dwelling place.B

14 The sons of your oppressors

will come and bow down to you;s

all who reviled you

will fall facedown at your feet.t

They will call you the City of the Lord,

Zion of the Holy One of Israel.u

15 Instead of your being deserted and hated,

with no one passing through,v

I will make you an object of eternal pride,w

a joy from age to age.

16 You will nurse on the milk of nations,

and nurse at the breast of kings;x

you will know that I, the Lord, am your Saviory

and Redeemer,z the Mighty One of Jacob.aa

17 I will bring gold instead of bronze;

I will bring silver instead of iron,

bronze instead of wood,

and iron instead of stones.

I will appoint peace as your government

and righteousness as your overseers.

18 Violence will never again be heard of in your land;ab

devastation and destruction

will be gone from your borders.

You will call your walls Salvationac

and your city gates Praise.

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

and the brightness of the moon will not shine on you.

The Lord will be your everlasting light,ad

and your God will be your splendor.

20 Your sun will no longer set,

and your moon will not fade;

for the Lord will be your everlasting light,

and the days of your sorrow will be over.ae

21 All your people will be righteous;af

they will possess the land forever;ag

they are the branch I planted,

the work of myC hands,

so that I may be glorified.ah

22 The least will become a thousand,

the smallest a mighty nation.

I am the Lord;

I will accomplish it quickly in its time.


About Christian Standard Bible

The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.

The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.

The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.

The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
