Isaiah 60:15-22 World English Bible (WEB)

15 “Whereas you have been forsaken and hated,
    so that no one passed through you,
I will make you an eternal excellency,
    a joy of many generations.
16 You will also drink the milk of the nations,
    and will nurse from royal breasts.
Then you will know that I, Yahweh, am your Savior,
    your Redeemer,
    the Mighty One of Jacob.
17 For brass I will bring gold;
    for iron I will bring silver;
    for wood, brass,
    and for stones, iron.
I will also make peace your governor,
    and righteousness your ruler.
18 Violence shall no more be heard in your land,
    nor desolation or destruction within your borders;
but you will call your walls Salvation,
    and your gates Praise.
19 The sun will be no more your light by day;
    nor will the brightness of the moon give light to you,
but Yahweh will be your everlasting light,
    and your God will be your glory.
20 Your sun will not go down any more,
    nor will your moon withdraw itself;
for Yahweh will be your everlasting light,
    and the days of your mourning will end.
21 Then your people will all be righteous.
    They will inherit the land forever,
    the branch of my planting,
    the work of my hands,
    that I may be glorified.
22 The little one will become a thousand,
    and the small one a strong nation.
    I, Yahweh, will do this quickly in its time.”

15 “Whereas you have been forsaken and hated
With no one passing through,
I will make you an everlasting pride,
A joy from generation to generation.
16 “You will also suck the milk of nations
And suck the breast of kings;
Then you will know that I, the Lord, am your Savior
And your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.
17 “Instead of bronze I will bring gold,
And instead of iron I will bring silver,
And instead of wood, bronze,
And instead of stones, iron.
And I will make peace your administrators
And righteousness your overseers.
18 Violence will not be heard again in your land,
Nor devastation or destruction within your borders;
But you will call your walls salvation, and your gates praise.
19 “No longer will you have the sun for light by day,
Nor for brightness will the moon give you light;
But you will have the Lord for an everlasting light,
And your God for your [a]glory.
20 “Your sun will no longer set,
Nor will your moon wane;
For you will have the Lord for an everlasting light,
And the days of your mourning will be over.
21 “Then all your people will be righteous;
They will possess the land forever,
The branch of [b]My planting,
The work of My hands,
That I may be glorified.
22 “The smallest one will become a [c]clan,
And the least one a mighty nation.
I, the Lord, will hasten it in its time.”
