Isaiah 60:2-4 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Look carefully! Darkness blankets the earth,
    and thick gloom[a] covers the nations,
    but Yahweh arises[b] upon you
    and the brightness of his glory appears over you![c]
Nations will be attracted to your radiant light[d]
    and kings to the sunrise-glory of your new day.[e]
Lift up your eyes higher! Look all around you and believe,
    for your sons are returning from far away
    and your daughters are being tenderly carried home.
    Watch as they all gather together, eager to come back to you!
