20 Your sun will no longer set,
and your moon will not fade;
for the Lord will be your everlasting light,
and the days of your sorrow will be over.(A)
21 All your people will be righteous;(B)
they will possess the land forever;(C)
they are the branch I planted,
the work of my[a] hands,
so that I may be glorified.(D)
22 The least will become a thousand,
the smallest a mighty nation.
I am the Lord;
I will accomplish it quickly in its time.

20 Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the Lord shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.

22 A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the Lord will hasten it in his time.
