1“Arise, shine; for your light has come and the glory of Yahweh has risen upon you.
  2For, behold, darkness covers the earth, and gross darkness covers the peoples, but Yahweh will arise upon you, and his glory will shine upon you.
  3Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.
  4Lift 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.
  5Then 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.
  6The 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.
  7All the flocks of Kedar will be gathered together to you, the rams of Nebaioth will minister to you; they will come up as an acceptable sacrifice on my altar, and I will glorify the house of my glory.
  8Who are these who fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?
  9Surely 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.
  10Foreigners 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.
  11Your 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.
  12For that nation and kingdom that will not serve you will perish; yes, those nations will be utterly wasted.
  13The glory of Lebanon will come to you, the fir tree, the pine, and the cypress together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary, and I will make the place of my feet glorious.
  14The sons of those who afflicted you will come bending over to you, and all those who despised you will bow 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.
  16You 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.
  17Instead 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.
  18Violence 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.
  19The 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.
  20Your 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.
  21Then 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.
  22The least one of you will become 1,000, and the smallest one a strong nation; I, Yahweh, in its time will do this quickly.”
