Isaiah 60:1-6 Expanded Bible (EXB)

Jerusalem Will Be Great

60 “Jerusalem, ·get up [arise] and shine, because your light has come,
    and the glory of the Lord shines on you.
[L Look; T Behold] Darkness ·now covers [or will cover] the earth;
    deep darkness covers ·her people [the nations].
But the Lord shines on you,
    and people see his glory [C his manifest presence] ·around [upon] you.
Nations will come to your light;
    kings will come to ·the brightness of your sunrise [or your radiance].

[L Lift up your eyes and] Look around you.
    People are gathering and coming to you.
Your sons are coming from far away,
    and your daughters are ·coming with them [or carried on the hip; or nursed at their side; or escorted by guardians].
When you see them, you will ·shine with happiness [L shine; be radiant];
    you will be excited and ·full of joy [L your heart will swell/enlarge],
because the wealth of the nations across the seas will be given to you;
    the riches of the nations will come to you.
·Herds [or Caravans; L An abundance of] of camels will cover your land,
    young camels from Midian and Ephah.
·People [L All] will come from Sheba [C unknown location, perhaps present-day Yemen, Eritrea, or Ethiopia; see 1 Kin. 10:1–13]
    bringing gold and ·incense [or frankincense],
    and they will sing praises to the Lord.

Isaiah 60:1-6 New International Version (NIV)

The Glory of Zion

60 “Arise, shine, for your light has come,
    and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
See, darkness covers the earth
    and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the Lord rises upon you
    and his glory appears over you.
Nations will come to your light,
    and kings to the brightness of your dawn.

“Lift up your eyes and look about you:
    All assemble and come to you;
your sons come from afar,
    and your daughters are carried on the hip.
Then you will look and be radiant,
    your heart will throb and swell with joy;
the wealth on the seas will be brought to you,
    to you the riches of the nations will come.
Herds of camels will cover your land,
    young camels of Midian and Ephah.
And all from Sheba will come,
    bearing gold and incense
    and proclaiming the praise of the Lord.
