 1 “Arise, shine; for your light has come

 and the glory of Yahweh has risen upon you.


 2 For, behold, darkness will cover the earth,

 and gross darkness will cover the peoples,

 but Yahweh will arise upon you,

 and his glory has shined upon you.


 3 Nations will 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 will come from far,

 and your daughters will be carried in the arms.


 5 Then you will see and be radiant,

 and your heart will thrill and be enlarged

 because the abundance of the sea will be turned to you,

 the wealth of the nations will come to you.


 6 The multitude of camels will cover you,

 the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah;

 all they from Sheba will come;

 they will bring gold and frankincense

 and will proclaim the praises of Yahweh.


 7 All the flocks of Kedar will be gathered together to you,

 the rams of Nebaioth will minister to you;

 they will come up with acceptance on my altar,

 and I will glorify the house of my glory.


Who are these who fly as a cloud,

 and as the doves to their windows?


 9 Surely the islands will wait for me,

 and the ships of Tarshish will come first,

 to bring your sons from afar,

 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 will build up your walls,

 and their kings will minister to you;

 for in my wrath I struck you,

 but in my favor have I had mercy on you.


 11 Your gates also will be open continually;

 they will 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 will perish;

 yes, those nations will be utterly wasted.


 13 The glory of Lebanon will 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

 will come bending to you,

 and all those who despised you

 will bow themselves down at the soles of your feet,

 and they will 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 will also drink the milk of the nations

 and will nurse from royal breasts,

 and you will know that I, Yahweh, am your Savior

 and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.


Instead of bronze I will bring gold,

 and instead of iron I will bring silver,

 and instead of wood, bronze,

 and instead of stones, iron.

 I will also make your officers peace,

 and righteousness your ruler.


 18 Violence will no more be heard in your land,

 nor desolation or destruction inside your borders;

 but you will call your walls Salvation

 and your gates Praise.


 19 The sun will no longer be your light by day;

 nor for brightness will the moon give you light,

 but Yahweh will be to you an everlasting light,

 and your God will be your glory.


 20 Your sun will no longer go down,

 nor will your moon withdraw itself,

 for Yahweh will be your everlasting light,

 and the days of your mourning will be ended.


 21 Then your people will all be righteous;

 they will inherit the land forever,

 the branch of my planting,

 the work of my hands,

 that I may be glorified.


 22 The least one of you will become 1,000,

 and the smallest one a strong nation;

 I, Yahweh, in its time will do this quickly.”
