Isaiah 66:12-13


66:12 For this is what the Lord says:

“Look, I am ready to extend to her prosperity that will flow like a river,

the riches of nations will flow into her like a stream that floods its banks. 1 

You will nurse from her breast 2  and be carried at her side;

you will play on her knees.

66:13 As a mother consoles a child, 3 

so I will console you,

and you will be consoled over Jerusalem.”

Isaiah 66:20

66:20 They will bring back all your countrymen 4  from all the nations as an offering to the Lord. They will bring them 5  on horses, in chariots, in wagons, on mules, and on camels 6  to my holy hill Jerusalem,” says the Lord, “just as the Israelites bring offerings to the Lord’s temple in ritually pure containers.
