60 “Jerusalem, ·get up [arise] and shine, because your light has come, and the glory of the Lord shines on you. 2 [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. 3 Nations will come to your light; kings will come to ·the brightness of your sunrise [or your radiance].
4 “[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]. 5 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. 6 ·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.
