60.7
ISAIAH

They shall come up with acceptance on Mine altar,
And I will glorify My glorious house.
 
8Who are these that fly as a cloud,
And as the doves to their cotes?
9Surely the isles shall wait for Me,
And the ships of Tarshish first,
To bring thy sons from far,
Their silver and their gold with them,
For the name of the Lord thy God,
And for the Holy One of Israel, because He hath glorified thee.
 
10And aliens shall build up thy walls,
And their kings shall minister unto thee;
For in My wrath I smote thee,
But in My favour have I had compassion on thee.
11Thy gates also shall be open continually,
Day and night, they shall not be shut;
That men may bring unto thee the wealth of the nations,
And their kings in procession.
12For that nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish;
Yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.
 
13The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee,
The cypress, the plane-tree and the larch together;
To beautify the place of My sanctuary,
And I will make the place of My feet glorious.
14And the sons of them that afflicted thee
Shall come bending unto thee,
And all they that despised thee shall bow down
At the soles of thy feet;
And they shall call thee The city of the Lord,
The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
 
15Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated,
So that no man passed through thee,
I will make thee an eternal excellency,
A joy of many generations.
16Thou shalt also suck the milk of the nations,
And shalt suck the breast of kings;
And thou shalt know that I the Lord am thy Saviour,
And I, the Mighty One of Jacob, thy Redeemer.
 
17For brass I will bring gold,
And for iron I will bring silver,
And for wood brass,
And for stones iron;
I will also make thy officers peace,
And righteousness thy magistrates.
18Violence shall no more be heard in thy land,
Desolation nor destruction within thy borders;
But thou shalt call thy walls Salvation,
And thy gates Praise.
 
19The sun shall be no more thy light by day,
Neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee;
But the Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light,
And thy God thy glory.
20Thy sun shall no more go down,
Neither shall thy moon withdraw itself;
For the Lord shall be thine everlasting light,
