"Wail, O gate; cry, O city; Melt away, O Philistia, all of you; For smoke comes from the north, And there is no straggler in his ranks.
Then your choicest valleys were full of chariots, And the horsemen took up fixed positions at the gate.
Desolation is left in the city And the gate is battered to ruins.
"Open the gates, that the righteous nation may enter, The one that remains faithful.
A spirit of justice for him who sits in judgment, A strength to those who repel the onslaught at the gate.
Who cause a person to be indicted by a word, And ensnare him who adjudicates at the gate, And defraud the one in the right with meaningless arguments.

Thus says the LORD to Cyrus His anointed, Whom I have taken by the right hand, To subdue nations before him And to loose the loins of kings; To open doors before him so that gates will not be shut:
"Moreover, I will make your battlements of rubies, And your gates of crystal, And your entire wall of precious stones.
"Your gates will be open continually; They will not be closed day or night, So that men may bring to you the wealth of the nations, With their kings led in procession.
"Violence will not be heard again in your land, Nor devastation or destruction within your borders; But you will call your walls salvation, and your gates praise.
Go through, go through the gates, Clear the way for the people; Build up, build up the highway, Remove the stones, lift up a standard over the peoples.
