Isaiah 60 ©
The glorious access of the Gentiles into the church. The blessings of the church after affliction.
For, behold, cthe darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the dLORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
iThe multitude of camels shall cover thee, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; all they from Sheba shall come: they shall bring gold and incense; and they shall shew forth the praises of the LORD.
jAll the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together unto thee, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister unto thee: kthey shall come up with acceptance on mine altar, and I will glorify the house of my glory.
Surely mthe isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, nunto the name of the LORD thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee.
sThe glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the tplace of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious.
uThe sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of thy feet; and they shall call thee, vThe city of the LORD, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
zThou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings: and athou shalt know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, bthe mighty One of Jacob.
cFor brass I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron: I will also make thy officers peace, dand thine exactors righteousness.
iThy people also shall be all righteous: jthey shall inherit the land for ever, kthe branch of my planting, lthe work of my hands, that I may mbe glorified.
