Isaiah 60:15-17 New English Translation (NET Bible)

15 You were once abandoned
and despised, with no one passing through,
but I will make you[a] a permanent source of pride
and joy to coming generations.
16 You will drink the milk of nations;
you will nurse at the breasts of kings.[b]
Then you will recognize that I, the Lord, am your Deliverer,
your Protector,[c] the Powerful One of Jacob.[d]
17 Instead of bronze, I will bring you gold;
instead of iron, I will bring you silver;
instead of wood, I will bring you[e] bronze;
instead of stones, I will bring you[f] iron.
I will make prosperity[g] your overseer,
and vindication your sovereign ruler.[h]
