Isaiah 60:9-12

Context

60:9 Indeed, the coastlands 1  look eagerly for me,

the large ships 2  are in the lead,

bringing your sons from far away,

along with their silver and gold,

to honor the Lord your God, 3 

the Holy One of Israel, 4  for he has bestowed honor on you.

60:10 Foreigners will rebuild your walls;

their kings will serve you.

Even though I struck you down in my anger,

I will restore my favor and have compassion on you. 5 

60:11 Your gates will remain open at all times;

they will not be shut during the day or at night,

so that the wealth of nations may be delivered,

with their kings leading the way. 6

such nations will be totally destroyed. 8
