Isaiah 60 – New International Version (NIV)
The Glory of Zion
- “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
- See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you.
- Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.
- “Lift up your eyes and look about you: All assemble and come to you; your sons come from afar, and your daughters are carried on the hip.
- Then you will look and be radiant, your heart will throb and swell with joy; the wealth on the seas will be brought to you, to you the riches of the nations will come.
- Herds of camels will cover your land, young camels of Midian and Ephah. And all from Sheba will come, bearing gold and incense and proclaiming the praise of the Lord.
- All Kedar’s flocks will be gathered to you, the rams of Nebaioth will serve you; they will be accepted as offerings on my altar,
and I will adorn my glorious temple.
- “Who are these that fly along like clouds, like doves to their nests?
- Surely the islands look to me; in the lead are the ships of Tarshish, [a] bringing your children from afar, with their silver and gold, to the honor of the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, for he has endowed you with splendor.
- “Foreigners will rebuild your walls, and their kings will serve you. Though in anger I struck you, in favor I will show you compassion.
- Your gates will always stand open, they will never be shut, day or night, so that people may bring you the wealth of the nations— their kings led in triumphal procession.
- For the nation or kingdom that will not serve you will perish; it will be utterly ruined.
- “The glory of Lebanon will come to you, the juniper, the fir and the cypress together, to adorn my sanctuary; and I will glorify the place for my feet.
- The children of your oppressors will come bowing before you; all who despise you will bow down at your feet and will call you the City of the Lord, Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
- “Although you have been forsaken and hated, with no one traveling through, I will make you the everlasting pride and the joy of all generations.
- You will drink the milk of nations and be nursed at royal breasts. Then you will know that I, the Lord, am your Savior, your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.
- Instead of bronze I will bring you gold, and silver in place of iron. Instead of wood I will bring you bronze, and iron in place of stones. I will make peace your governor and well-being your ruler.
- No longer will violence be heard in your land, nor ruin or destruction within your borders, but you will call your walls Salvation and your gates Praise.
- The sun will no more be your light by day, nor will the brightness of the moon shine on you, for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory.
- Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more; the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your days of sorrow will end.
- Then all your people will be righteous and they will possess the land forever. They are the shoot I have planted, the work of my hands, for the display of my splendor.
- The least of you will become a thousand, the smallest a mighty nation. I am the Lord; in its time I will do this swiftly.”

The New Jerusalem
- Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
- For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
- And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.
- Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side.
- Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee.
- The multitude of camels shall cover thee, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; all they from Sheba shall come: they shall bring gold and incense; and they shall shew forth the praises of the Lord.
- All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together unto thee, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister unto thee: they shall come up with acceptance on mine altar, and I will glorify the house of my glory.
- Who are these that fly as a cloud, and as the doves to their windows?
- Surely 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, unto the name of the Lord thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee.
- And the sons of strangers 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 mercy on thee.
- Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought.
- For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.
- The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, the fir tree, the pine tree, and the box together, to beautify the place of my sanctuary; and I will make the place of my feet glorious.
- The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee; and all they that despised thee shall bow themselves 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.
- Whereas thou has been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations.
- Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings: and thou shalt know that I the Lord am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.
- For 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 thine exactors righteousness.
- Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.
- The 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.
- Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the Lord shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended.
- Thy people also shall be all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified.
- A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the Lord will hasten it in his time.
Bible Gateway Isaiah 60 :: NIV. "Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.
When the Lord tells you to arise and shine, He is simply telling you to get up, shake off the spirit of poverty, lack or infirmity that had been dogging your steps and turn it into prosperity, blessings and goodness.
Isaiah 60:22. No matter what you may be facing today, trust in God's assurance that everything will fall into place in His perfect time.
In the Bible, we have about 23 Bible verses talking about God Arising. To arise, means “to be stirred up, to be awake and to prepare for action”. It is against this background that the Psalmist found himself in a critical situation, he had to say to God to arise for him and His people based on His eternal love.
It means that if you are a good example, if you “let your light shine,” then when other people see your good example, they will know that you love Heavenly Father and they, too, will want to honor Him.
D glory of God upon your life will promote you. It will make nations to honour and celebrate you. It will cause your greatest enemy to bow down before you.
An expression used when waking someone up, as in It's past seven, children—rise and shine! Originating as a military order in the late 1800s, shine here means “act lively, do well.”
But it was the English political theorist Algernon Sidney who originated the now familiar wording, "God helps those who help themselves", apparently the first exact rendering of the phrase. Benjamin Franklin later used it in his Poor Richard's Almanack (1736) and has been widely quoted.
60.  Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.  For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
For us, God's timing often feels like a long, desperate delay. God's perfect timing does two things: It grows our faith as we are forced to wait and trust in God and it makes certain that He, and He alone, gets the glory and praise for pulling us through. "My times are in Your hands ..." Psalm 31:15.
The consistency of the earth's seasons is a reflection of its Maker and the steadiness of His character. James 1:17-19 tells us that: Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
Conversation. I don't know who needs to see this but Isaiah 60:22 says, “When the time is right, I the Lord, will make it happen”. Sleep in peace tonight, God is in control.
May God arise, may his enemies be scattered; may his foes flee before him. As smoke is blown away by the wind, may you blow them away; as wax melts before the fire, may the wicked perish before God. But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
“'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. '” — Jeremiah 29:11. Jeremiah 29:11 is one of the most often-quoted verses in the Bible.
(2) "For behold, darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness the peoples; But the LORD will rise upon you And His glory will appear upon you.. (2) "For behold, darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness the peoples; But the LORD will rise upon you And His glory will appear upon you.. It was the fulfilment of another prophetic passage in Isaiah that said 'The people who walk in darkness will see a great light; Those who live in a dark land, The light will shine on them.'. The light shines in the darkness of our own lives and in that light you can see!. John 8:12 Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, "I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.". 2 Cor 4:6 For God, who said, "Light shall shine out of darkness," is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.. (2) "For behold, darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness the peoples; But the LORD will rise upon you And His glory will appear upon you.
The former exiles have returned to Jerusalem after a lengthy exile that challenged their faith in Yahweh.. Is Yahweh faithful—will he keep his promises?. He is not like the powerless Babylonian gods, who are made of wood.. Yahweh promises, “As for me, this is my covenant with them,” says Yahweh.. The mood of chapters 60-62, then, turns joyful.. • “Nations (Gentiles) shall come to your light” (60:3).. It promises that “Yahweh will be to you an everlasting light, and your God your glory” (60:19).. The people of Jerusalem have suffered through the darkness of a lengthy exile—and a difficult return to a Jerusalem that lay in ruins—and neighbors opposed to the rebuilding of the city and the temple.. It will be “the peoples” (Gentiles) who will be enveloped in “thick darkness,” and the former exiles who will experience the light of Yahweh’s glory.. However, Darius is mentioned in Ezra 5:6 as if he followed Artaxerxes.. Now these nations will be bringing tribute to Jerusalem.. “because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, the wealth of the nations shall come to you” (v. 5b).. “they shall bring gold and frankincense, and shall proclaim the praise of Yahweh” (v. 6b).. Hanson, Paul D., Interpretation Commentary:Isaiah 40-66, (Louisville: John Knox Press, 1995). Oswalt, John N., The New International Commentary on the Old Testament: The Book of Isaiah, Chapters 40-66 (Grand Rapids: William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, 1998)
The promises recorded in the second section of Isaiah during the exile. (40-55) pointed to a great future for God’s people (see The Turn Toward Hope: Isaiah 40:1-15 ).. The community of God’s. people was in no condition to be a light to the nations (42:5-7).. In chapter 60, the prophet renews the promises of a new day for. the community of faith.. The historical background of this passage concerns the restoration and. rebuilding of Jerusalem in the time of Ezra and Nehemiah.. your light has come Since the. beginning of the second section of Isaiah (40:10), there has been the. anticipation of God’s "coming" to deliver His people and restore justice to. the land.. Prophets often. used this form to refer to God’s future activity as well.. As in chapter 59, light is a symbol. of God’s presence, which brings deliverance and blessing.. The people have no light of their. own.. This light will bring the. world justice, peace and deliverance from oppression (Isa 49:6; 58:6-12;. Acts 13:47).. In several places in. the second section of Isaiah, the prophet portrays Israel as a wife deserted. by her husband (49:20-21; 54:6-8).. These verses return to the. imagery of light and glory with which the chapter began.. the LORD will be your everlasting light A similar idea occurs in Zechariah (14:7), which comes from about the same. period as this passage of Isaiah.. More likely, the writer is seeing the entire. community of God’s people, and so God himself, vindicated by the restoration. of Jerusalem.
Isaiah 60 casts a magnificent vision of Zion’s future — full of light, prosperity, and prestige.. To gain a fuller appreciation for what this text hopes for and how it imagines Zion’s future, one must move beyond the boundaries established by the lectionary (Isaiah 60:1-6) to include the entire pericope (Isaiah 60:1-22).. The echoes of the plague of darkness (Exodus 10:21-29) are clear, only this time, it is unleashed on a global scale: The whole earth will be plunged into darkness, and Zion alone will mediate divine light to the nations and will become a lantern by which kings will walk (v. 3).. Through the power of God, the oppressed are put into power; those once stripped of resources and goods not only receive what was taken from them, they become exceedingly wealthy in the process; those driven far from Jerusalem return.. One thing the author of Isaiah 60 did not change, however, is the organization of imperial power.. The differentials and binaries present in Near Eastern empires — and many empires, for that matter — remain unchanged in Isaiah 60’s vision of the future.. While profound in its capacity to imagine a new and hopeful future, Isaiah 60 is never able to move beyond a discourse of domination, despite Israel’s own story of redemption from oppression in Egypt.. At the very least, one can say that Isaiah 60 doesn’t go as far as other Isaianic texts, which imagine Zion as a place where violence ceases to exist (Isaiah 11:9; 65:25).. Is the power one finds in the cross and Advent, where divine power manifests itself in weakness and suffering, the power one finds in this text?. Martin Luther gave us a profound lesson in how to wield divine power in his essay, “The Freedom of a Christian.” Although certainly not dealing with the kind of political power imagined in Isaiah 60, there is deep wisdom in his claim that all the riches of heaven are given to us in Christ, not in order that one might subjugate others, but rather that the Christian might empty himself, take on the form of a servant, and “in every way deal with his neighbor as he sees that God through Christ has dealt and still deals with him.” 1 The divine power we have in Christ, in other words, is power for the neighbor.

Light is a recurrent metaphor in this chapter to describe:. ▣ "your light has come" The subject of vv.. The Hebrew term for "glory" (BDB 458), because of its association with the Shekinah cloud of glory (cf.. 60:2 This has some allusion to the physical darkness of Gen. 1:1-2 or Exod.. His light of revelation and salvation will rise ( Qal imperfect, BDB 280, KB 281).. 60:3 "Nations will come to your light" It is obvious that God's original purpose for Israel was to bring the world to Himself (cf.. 9 Surely the coastlands will wait for Me;And the ships of Tarshish will come first,To bring your sons from afar,Their silver and their gold with them,. For the name of the Lord your God,And for the Holy One of Israel because He has glorified you.. 60:5 As a result of God's repentant people "seeing" ( Qal imperfect, BDB 906, KB 1157), notice the stated consequences of seeing the light of God (cf.. 2. the wealth of the nations will come to you (cf.. 60:6 "will bear good news of the praises of the Lord" The verb ( Piel imperfect, BDB 142, KB 163) refers to the grace of God to Israel and to all nations (cf.. Holy One of Israel (covenant God). ▣ "the place of My sanctuary;. And I shall make the place of My feet glorious" The Ark of the Covenant and the Holy of Holies symbolize God's presence on earth.. Israel's purpose has always been to bring the world to God (cf.. 60:21 "all your people will be righteous" God's blessings will come only when the people repent (see Special Topic at 44:22).
