New King James Version
17 “Instead of bronze I will bring gold,
Instead of iron I will bring silver,
Instead of wood, bronze,
And instead of stones, iron.
I will also make your officers peace,
And your magistrates righteousness.
18 Violence shall no longer be heard in your land,
Neither [a]wasting nor destruction within your borders;
But you shall call (A)your walls Salvation,
And your gates Praise.
God the Glory of His People
19 “The (B)sun shall no longer be your light by day,
Nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you;
But the Lord will be to you an everlasting light,
And (C)your God your glory.
20 (D)Your sun shall no longer go down,
Nor shall your moon withdraw itself;
For the Lord will be your everlasting light,
And the days of your mourning shall be ended.
21 (E)Also your people shall all be righteous;
(F)They shall inherit the land forever,
(G)The branch of My planting,
(H)The work of My hands,
That I may be glorified.
22 (I)A little one shall become a thousand,
And a small one a strong nation.
I, the Lord, will hasten it in its time.”
- Isaiah 60:18 devastation
