60.7
ISAIAH

For truth hath stumbled in the broad place,
And uprightness cannot enter.
15And truth is lacking,
And he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey.
 
And the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him
That there was no justice;
16And He saw that there was no man,
And was astonished that there was no intercessor;
Therefore His own arm brought salvation unto Him;
And His righteousness, it sustained Him;
17And He put on righteousness as a coat of mail,
And a helmet of salvation upon His head,
And He put on garments of vengeance for clothing,
And was clad with zeal as a cloak.
18According to their deeds, accordingly He will repay,
Fury to His adversaries, recompense to His enemies;
To the islands He will repay recompense.
19So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west,
And His glory from the rising of the sun;
For distress will come in like a flood,
Which the breath of the Lord driveth.
 
20And a redeemer will come to Zion,
And unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob,
Saith the Lord.

21And as for Me, this is My covenant with them, saith the Lord; My spirit that is upon thee, and My words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith the Lord, from henceforth and for ever.


60Arise, shine, for thy light is come,
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
2For, behold, darkness shall cover the earth,
And gross darkness the peoples;
But upon thee the Lord will arise,
And His glory shall be seen upon thee.
3And nations shall walk at thy light,
And kings at the brightness of thy rising.
 
4Lift Up thine eyes round about, and see:
They all are gathered together, and come to thee;
Thy sons come from far,
And thy daughters are borne on the side.
5Then thou shalt see and be radiant,
And thy heart shall throb and be enlarged;
Because the abundance of the sea shall be turned unto thee,
The wealth of the nations shall come unto thee.
6The caravan of camels shall cover thee,
And of the young camels of Midian and Ephah,
All coming from Sheba;
They shall bring gold and incense,
And shall proclaim the praises of the Lord.
7All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together unto thee,
The rams of Nebaioth shall minister unto thee;
