Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord shines over you.a2
For look, darkness covers the earth, and total darkness the peoples; but the Lord will shine over you, and His glory will appear over you.
Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your radiance.
Raise your eyes and look around: they all gather and come to you; your sons will come from far away, and your daughters will be carried on the hip.
Then you will see and be radiant, and your heart will tremble and rejoice,b because the riches of the sea will become yours, and the wealth of the nations will come to you.
Caravans of camels will cover your landc- young camels of Midian and Ephah- all of them will come from Sheba. They will carry gold and frankincense and proclaim the praises of the Lord.
All the flocks of Kedar will be gathered to you; the rams of Nebaioth will serve you and go up on My altar as an acceptable [sacrifice]. I will glorify My beautiful house.
Who are these who fly like a cloud, like doves to their shelters?
