Bible: Isaiah 60:1-5

Zion’s Future Splendor

60:1Arise! Shine! For your light arrives!

The splendor 1  of the Lord shines on you!

60:2 For, look, darkness covers the earth

and deep darkness covers 2  the nations,

but the Lord shines on you;

his splendor 3  appears over you.

60:3 Nations come to your light,

kings to your bright light.

60:4 Look all around you! 4 

They all gather and come to you –

your sons come from far away

and your daughters are escorted by guardians.

60:5 Then you will look and smile, 5 

you will be excited and your heart will swell with pride. 6 

For the riches of distant lands 7  will belong to you

and the wealth of nations will come to you.
