And bthe glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
And dgross darkness the people:
But the Lord shall arise upon thee,
3 And fthe Gentiles shall come to thy light,
And gkings to the brightness of thy rising.
4 hLift up thine eyes round about, and see:
jThy sons shall come from far,
And thy daughters shall be nursed kat thy side.
5 Then thou shalt see, and lflow together,
And thine heart shall fear, and mbe enlarged;
All they from sSheba shall come:
They shall bring tgold and incense;
And they shall ushew forth the praises of the Lord.
7 All the flocks of vKedar shall be gathered together unto thee,
The rams of wNebaioth shall minister unto thee:
xThey shall come up with acceptance on mine altar,
8 zWho are these that fly as a cloud,
And aas the doves to their windows?
gTheir silver and their gold with them,
hUnto the name of the Lord thy God,
10 And kthe sons of strangers shall build up thy walls,
And ltheir kings shall minister unto thee:
For min my wrath I smote thee,
But nin my favour have I had mercy on thee.
11 Therefore othy gates shall be open continually;
They shall not be shut day nor night;
That men may bring unto thee the ||forces of the Gentiles,
12 For qthe nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish;
Yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.
13 rThe glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee,
sThe fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together,
To tbeautify the place of my sanctuary;
And I will make uthe place of my feet glorious.
14 vThe sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee;
And all they that despised thee shall wbow themselves down at the soles of thy feet;
And they shall call thee, xThe city of the Lord,
yThe Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
So that no man went through thee,
I will make thee an eternal bexcellency,
A joy of many generations.
16 cThou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles,
And cshalt suck the breast of kings:
17 eFor 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 fpeace,
And thine gexactors righteousness.
18 hViolence shall no more be heard in thy land,
iWasting nor destruction within thy borders;
But thou shalt call jthy walls Salvation,
And thy gates kPraise.
19 lThe sun shall be no more thy light by day;
lNeither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee:
But the Lord shall be unto thee man everlasting light,
20 pThy sun shall no more go down;
Neither shall thy moon withdraw itself:
For the Lord shall be thine everlasting light,
And qthe days of thy mourning shall be ended.
21 rThy people also shall be all righteous:
sThey shall inherit the land for ever,
22 xA little one shall become a thousand,
And a small one a ystrong nation:
I the Lord will zhasten it in his time.
