Promise of the new Jerusalem

1ARISE, shine, Jerusalem, for your light has come; and over you the glory of the LORD has dawned.

2Though darkness covers the earth and dark night the nations, on you the LORD shines and over you his glory will appear;

3nations will journey towards your light and kings to your radiance.

4Raise your eyes and look around: they are all assembling, flocking back to you; your sons are coming from afar, your daughters walking beside them.

5You will see it, and be radiant with joy, and your heart will thrill with gladness; sea-borne riches will be lavished on you and the wealth of nations will be yours.

6Camels in droves will cover the land, young camels from Midian and Ephah, all coming from Sheba laden with gold and frankincense, heralds of the LORD's praise.

7Kedar's flocks will all be gathered for you, rams of Nebaioth will serve your needs, acceptable offerings on my altar; I shall enhance the splendour of my temple.

8Who are these that sail along like clouds, that fly like doves to their dovecots?

9They are vessels assembling from the coasts and islands, ships of Tarshish leading the convoy; they bring your children from far away, their silver and gold with them, to the honour of the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel; for he has made you glorious.

10Foreigners will rebuild your walls and their kings will be your servants; though in my wrath I struck you down, now in my favour I show you pity.

11Your gates will stand open at all times; day and night they will never be shut, so that through them may be brought the wealth of nations and their kings under escort.

12For the nation or kingdom which refuses to serve you will perish; and there will be widespread devastation among such nations.

13The glory of Lebanon will come to you, pine, fir, and boxwood all together, to adorn my holy sanctuary, to honour the place where I stand.

14The sons of your oppressors will come forward to do homage, all who reviled you will bow low at your feet; they will address you as “City of the LORD, Zion of the Holy One of Israel”.

15No longer will you be deserted, like a wife hated and neglected; I shall make you an object of everlasting acclaim, and a source of never-ending joy.

16You will suck the milk of nations and be suckled at royal breasts. Then you will know that I, the LORD, am your Deliverer; your Redeemer is the Mighty One of Jacob.

17For copper I shall bring you gold and for iron I shall bring silver, copper for timber and iron for stone; I shall appoint peace to govern you and make righteousness rule over you.

18No longer will the sound of violence be heard in your land, nor havoc and ruin within your borders; but you will name your walls Deliverance and your gates Praise.

19The sun will no longer be your light by day, nor the moon shine on you by night; the LORD will be your everlasting light, your God will be your splendour.

20Never again will your sun set nor your moon withdraw her light; but the LORD will be your everlasting light and your days of mourning will be ended.

21Your people, all of them righteous, will possess the land for ever. They are a shoot of my own planting, a work of my own hands for my adornment.

22The few will become a thousand; the handful, a great nation. At its appointed time I the LORD shall bring this swiftly to pass.
