1 "Arise, shine; for your light is come, and the glory of Yahweh
is risen on you. 2 For, behold, darkness shall cover the
earth, and gross darkness the peoples; but Yahweh will arise on
you, and his glory shall be seen on you. 3 Nations shall
come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.

4 "Lift up your eyes all around, and see: they all gather
themselves together, they come to you; your sons shall come from
far, and your daughters shall be carried in the arms. 5 Then
you shall see and be radiant, and your heart shall thrill and be
enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to
you, the wealth of the nations shall come to you. 6 The
multitude of camels shall cover you, the dromedaries of Midian
and Ephah; all they from Sheba shall come; they shall bring gold
and frankincense, and shall proclaim the praises of Yahweh.
7 All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together to you,
the rams of Nebaioth shall minister to you; they shall come up
with acceptance on my altar; and I will glorify the house of my

8 "Who are these who fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their
windows? 9 Surely the islands shall wait for me, and the
ships of Tarshish first, to bring your sons from far, their
silver and their gold with them, for the name of Yahweh your God,
and for the Holy One of Israel, because he has glorified you.

10 "Foreigners shall build up your walls, and their kings shall
minister to you: for in my wrath I struck you, but in my favor
have I had mercy on you. 11 Your gates also shall be open continually; they shall not be
shut day nor night; that men may bring to you the wealth of the
nations, and their kings led captive. 12 For that nation and kingdom that will not serve you shall
perish; yes, those nations shall be utterly wasted.

13 "The glory of Lebanon shall come to you, the fir tree, the
pine, and the box tree together, to beautify the place of my
sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious. 14 The sons of those who afflicted you shall come bending to you;
and all those who despised you shall bow themselves down at the
soles of your feet; and they shall call you The city of Yahweh,
The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.

15 "Whereas you have been forsaken and hated, so that no man
passed through you, I will make you an eternal excellency, a joy
of many generations. 16 You shall also suck the milk of the
nations, and shall nurse from royal breasts; and you shall know
that I, Yahweh, am your Savior, and your Redeemer, the Mighty One
of Jacob. 17 For brass I will bring gold, and for iron I
will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron. I
will also make your officers peace, and righteousness your ruler.
18 Violence shall no more be heard in your land, desolation
nor destruction within your borders; but you shall call your
walls Salvation, and your gates Praise. 19 The sun shall be
no more your light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon
give light to you: but Yahweh will be to you an everlasting
light, and your God your glory. 20 Your sun shall no more go
down, neither shall your moon withdraw itself; for Yahweh will be
your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be
ended. 21 Your people also shall be all righteous; they
shall inherit the land forever, the branch of my planting, the
work of my hands, that I may be glorified. 22 The little one
shall become a thousand, and the small one a strong nation; I,
Yahweh, will hasten it in its time."
