Bible: Isaiah 66:18-24

66:18 I hate their deeds and thoughts! So I am coming 1  to gather all the nations and ethnic groups; 2  they will come and witness my splendor. 66:19 I will perform a mighty act among them 3  and then send some of those who remain to the nations – to Tarshish, Pul, 4  Lud 5  (known for its archers 6 ), Tubal, Javan, 7  and to the distant coastlands 8  that have not heard about me or seen my splendor. They will tell the nations of my splendor. 66:20 They will bring back all your countrymen 9  from all the nations as an offering to the Lord. They will bring them 10  on horses, in chariots, in wagons, on mules, and on camels 11  to my holy hill Jerusalem,” says the Lord, “just as the Israelites bring offerings to the Lord’s temple in ritually pure containers. 66:21 And I will choose some of them as priests and Levites,” says the Lord. 66:22 For just as the new heavens and the new earth I am about to make will remain standing before me,” says the Lord, “so your descendants and your name will remain. 66:23 From one month 12  to the next and from one Sabbath to the next, all people 13  will come to worship me,” 14  says the Lord. 66:24 They will go out and observe the corpses of those who rebelled against me, for the maggots that eat them will not die, 15  and the fire that consumes them will not die out. 16  All people will find the sight abhorrent.” 17
