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.’ 1
60:15 You were once abandoned
and despised, with no one passing through,
but I will make you 2 a permanent source of pride
and joy to coming generations.
60:16 You will drink the milk of nations;
you will nurse at the breasts of kings. 3
Then you will recognize that I, the Lord, am your deliverer,
2 tn Heb “Instead of your being abandoned and despised, with no one passing through, I will make you.”
3 sn The nations and kings are depicted as a mother nursing her children. Restored Zion will be nourished by them as she receives their wealth as tribute.
