60 Jerusalem, stand up! Shine! Your new day is dawning. The glory of the Lord shines brightly on you. 2 The earth and its people are covered with darkness, but the glory of the Lord is shining upon you. 3 Nations and kings will come to the light of your dawning day.
Crowds Are Coming to Jerusalem
The Lord said:
4 Open your eyes! Look around! Crowds are coming. Your sons are on their way from distant lands; your daughters are being carried like little children. 5 When you see this, your faces will glow; your hearts will pound and swell with pride.[a] Treasures from across the sea and the wealth of nations will be brought to you. 6 Your country will be covered with caravans of young camels from Midian and Ephah.[b] The people of Sheba[c] will bring gold and spices in praise of me, the Lord.
