The Future Glory of Israel

60 (A)Arise, shine, for your light has come,
    and (B)the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.
For behold, darkness shall cover the earth,
    and thick darkness the peoples;
but the Lord will arise upon you,
    and his glory will be seen upon you.
(C)And nations shall come to your light,
    and kings to the brightness of your rising.

(D)Lift up your eyes all around, and see;
    they all gather together, they come to you;
(E)your sons shall come from afar,
    and your daughters shall be carried on the hip.
Then you shall see and (F)be radiant;
    your heart shall thrill and exult,[a]
because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you,
    (G)the wealth of the nations shall come to you.
A multitude of camels shall cover you,
    the young camels of (H)Midian and (I)Ephah;
    all those from (J)Sheba shall come.
(K)They shall bring gold and frankincense,
    and shall bring good news, the praises of the Lord.
All the flocks of (L)Kedar shall be gathered to you;
    the rams of (M)Nebaioth shall minister to you;
(N)they shall come up with acceptance on my altar,
    (O)and I will beautify my beautiful house.

Who are these that fly like a cloud,
    and (P)like doves to their windows?
For (Q)the coastlands shall hope for me,
    (R)the ships of Tarshish first,
(S)to bring your children from afar,
    their silver and gold with them,
for the name of the Lord your God,
    and for the Holy One of Israel,
    because (T)he has made you beautiful.
