Yeshayah/Isaiah 60:1 - 22

Chapter 60

1 Arise! Shine! For your light has arrived, and the glory of Hashem has shined upon you.  2 For, behold! Darkness shall cover the earth, and dense cloud the kingdoms; but upon you shall shine Hashem, and His glory shall be seen upon you.  3 Nations will go by your light, and kings by the brightness of your shine.  4 Lift your eyes about you and see, all of them assemble, they come to you; your sons from afar shall come, and your daughters shall be nurtured alongside [royalty].  5 Then you shall see and be radiant, anxious and expansive shall be your heart, for the affluence of the west shall be turned over to you, and the wealth of nations shall come to you.  6 An abundance of camels will envelop you, dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; all those of Sheba shall come, gold and frankincense shall they bear, and the praises of Hashem shall they proclaim.  7 All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered unto you, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister to you; they shall be brought up with favor upon My Altar, and the House of My glory will I glorify.  8 Who are these? Like a cloud they fly, like pigeons to their cote-windows.  9 For unto Me shall the island-dwellers gather, and the ships of Tarshish [as] in earlier times, to bring your children from afar, their gold and silver with them, for the sake of Hashem, your God, and for the Holy One of Israel, for He has glorified you.  10 Then the sons of strangers shall build your city-walls and their kings shall minister to you; though I struck you in My indignation, in My favor have I been compassionate to you.  11 And your gates shall be opened continuously, day and night, they shall not be closed, to bring to you the wealth of nations, and their kings under escort.  12 For the nation and the kingdom that will not serve you shall be lost, and the nations utterly destroyed.  13 The glory of the Lebanon [forest] shall come to you — cypress, fir and box tree, together — to glorify the site of My Sanctuary, and the site of My footstool will I honor.  14 They shall go unto you in bent submission, those children of your oppressors; and they shall prostrate themselves at the soles of your feet, all those who slandered you; and they shall call you "the City of Hashem, Zion, [the City of] the Holy One of Israel."  15 In place of your having been forsaken and hated with no wayfarer, I shall establish you as an eternal pride, a joy for each succeeding generation.  16 You shall nurse from the milk of the nations, from the breast of kings shall you nurse; then you shall know that I, Hashem, am your Savior and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.  17 In place of the copper I will bring gold; and in place of the iron I will bring silver; and in place of the wood, copper; and in place of the stones, iron; I will set your appointed officials for peacefulness and your overlords for righteousness.  18 No longer shall violence be heard in your land, [nor] plunder and breakage in your borders; but you shall call [God's] salvation your [protective] walls, and [His] praise your gateways.  19 You shall no longer have need of the sun for light of day, nor for brightness the moon to illuminate for you; rather Hashem shall be unto you an eternal light, and your God for your glory.  20 Never again shall your sun set, nor shall your moon be withdrawn; for Hashem shall be unto you an eternal light, and ended shall be the days of your mourning.  21 And your people, they are all righteous; forever shall they inherit the Land; a branch of My planting, My handiwork, for Me to glory in.  22 The smallest shall increase a thousandfold, and the least into a mighty nation; I am Hashem, in its time I will hasten it.
