Isaiah 60:17-18

Context

60:17 Instead of bronze, I will bring you gold,

instead of iron, I will bring you silver,

instead of wood, I will bring you 1  bronze,

instead of stones, I will bring you 2  iron.

I will make prosperity 3  your overseer,

and vindication your sovereign ruler. 4 

60:18 Sounds of violence 5  will no longer be heard in your land,

or the sounds of 6  destruction and devastation within your borders.

You will name your walls, ‘Deliverance,’

and your gates, ‘Praise.’

3 tn Or “peace” (KJV and many other English versions).
