Isaiah 60:8-14


60:8 Who are these who float along 1  like a cloud,

who fly like doves to their shelters? 2 

60:9 Indeed, the coastlands 3  look eagerly for me,

the large ships 4  are in the lead,

bringing your sons from far away,

along with their silver and gold,

to honor the Lord your God, 5 

the Holy One of Israel, 6  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. 7 

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. 8 

60:12 Indeed, 9  nations or kingdoms that do not serve you will perish;

such nations will be totally destroyed. 10 

60:13 The splendor of Lebanon will come to you,

its evergreens, firs, and cypresses together,

to beautify my palace; 11 

I will bestow honor on my throne room. 12 

60:14 The children of your oppressors will come bowing to you;

all who treated you with disrespect will bow down at your feet.

They will call you, ‘The City of the Lord,

Zion of the Holy One of Israel.’ 13
