"Who has aroused one from the east Whom He calls in righteousness to His feet ? He delivers up nations before him And subdues kings. He makes them like dust with his sword, As the wind-driven chaff with his bow.
"He pursues them, passing on in safety, By a way he had not been traversing with his feet.
"Kings will be your guardians, And their princesses your nurses. They will bow down to you with their faces to the earth And lick the dust of your feet ; And you will know that I am the LORD ; Those who hopefully wait for Me will not be put to shame.
"If because of the sabbath, you turn your foot From doing your own pleasure on My holy day, And call the sabbath a delight, the holy day of the LORD honorable, And honor it, desisting from your own ways, From seeking your own pleasure And speaking your own word,
"The glory of Lebanon will come to you, The juniper, the box tree and the cypress together, To beautify the place of My sanctuary ; And I shall make the place of My feet glorious.
"The sons of those who afflicted you will come bowing to you, And all those who despised you will bow themselves at the soles of your feet ; And they will call you the city of the LORD, The Zion of the Holy One of Israel.
