Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 Rise thou (up), Jerusalem, be thou lightened [be thou lighted], for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen on thee. 1 "Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.
2 For lo! darknesses shall cover the earth, and mist shall cover peoples; but the Lord shall rise [up]on thee, and his glory shall be seen in thee. (For lo! darkness shall cover the earth, and mist shall cover the nations; but the Lord shall shine upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.) 2 See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and his glory appears over you.
3 And heathen men shall go in thy light, and kings in the shining of thy rising. (And the heathen shall come to thy light, and kings to the shining of thy rising sun.) 3 Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.
4 Raise thine eyes in compass, and see; all these men be gathered together, they be come to thee; thy sons shall come from [a]far, and thy daughters shall rise from the side. (Raise up thine eyes, and look all around; all those who be gathered together, have come to thee; thy sons shall come from afar, and thy daughters shall be carried at thy side.) 4 "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 arm.
5 Then thou shalt see, and shalt flow; and thine heart shall wonder, and shall be alarged, when the multitude of the sea is converted to thee, the strength of heathen men is come to thee; (Then thou shalt see, and shalt rejoice, and thy heart shall wonder, and shall be enlarged; for the abundance of the sea shall be given to thee, and the wealth of the heathen shall be brought to thee;) 5 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.
6 the flowing of camels shall cover thee, the leaders of dromedaries of Midian and of Ephah (a multitude of camels shall cover thy land, the dromedaries of Midian and of Ephah); all men of Sheba shall come, bringing gold and incense, and telling praising to the Lord. 6 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.
7 Each sheep of Kedar shall be gathered to thee, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister to thee; they shall be offered on mine acceptable altar, and I shall glorify the house of my majesty. (All the sheep of Kedar shall be gathered together for thee, the rams of Nebaioth shall serve thee; they shall be acceptable offerings on my altar, and I shall glorify the majesty of my House, or of my Temple.) 7 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.
8 Who be these, that fly as clouds, and as culvers at their windows? (Who be these, who fly like clouds, and like doves returning home?) 8 "Who are these that fly along like clouds, like doves to their nests?
9 Forsooth isles abide me, and the ships of the sea in the beginning; that I bring thy sons from [a]far, the silver of them, and the gold of them is with them, to (honour) the name of thy Lord God, and to the Holy of Israel; for he shall glorify thee. (For the islands shall wait for me, and with the ships of Tarshish leading the way, I shall bring back thy sons and daughters from afar; their silver, and their gold, shall be with them, to honour the name of the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, for he hath glorified thee.) 9 Surely the islands look to me; in the lead are the ships of Tarshish, bringing your sons 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.
10 And the sons of pilgrims shall build thy walls (again), and the kings of them shall minister to thee. For I smote thee in mine indignation, and in my reconciling I had mercy on thee. (And the sons of foreigners shall rebuild thy walls, and their kings shall serve thee. For I struck thee in my anger, but now in reconciliation I have had mercy upon thee.) 10 "Foreigners will rebuild your walls, and their kings will serve you. Though in anger I struck you, in favor I will show you compassion.
11 And thy gates shall be opened continually, day and night those shall not be closed; that the strength of heathen men be brought to thee, and the kings of them be brought. (And thy gates shall be open continually, they shall not be closed day or night; so that the wealth of the heathen can be brought in to thee, and so that their kings can also be brought in to thee.) 11 Your gates will always stand open, they will never be shut, day or night, so that men may bring you the wealth of the nations-- their kings led in triumphal procession.
12 For why the folk and realm that serveth not thee, shall perish, and heathen men shall be destroyed by wilderness. (For the nations, and the kingdoms, that serve thee not, shall perish, yea, those heathen shall be destroyed, and laid waste.) 12 For the nation or kingdom that will not serve you will perish; it will be utterly ruined.
13 The glory of the Lebanon shall come to thee, a fir tree, and box tree, and pine apple tree together, to adorn the place of mine hallowing; and I shall glorify the place of my feet.

14 And the sons of them that made thee low, shall come low to thee, and all that backbited thee, shall worship the steps of thy feet; and they shall call thee, A city of the Lord of Zion, of the Holy of Israel (and they shall call thee, The City of the Lord, the Zion of the Holy One of Israel). 14 The sons 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.
15 For that that thou were forsaken, and hated, and none was that passed by thee, (yea, now) I shall set thee into pride, that is, (to the) glory and honour, of worlds, (to be a) joy in generation and into generation. 15 "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.
16 And thou shalt suck the milk of folks, and thou shalt be suckled with the teat of kings; and thou shalt know that I am the Lord, saving thee, and thine again-buyer, the Strong of Jacob. (And thou shalt suck the milk of the nations, and thou shalt be suckled at the breasts of kings; and thou shalt know that I am the Lord, thy Saviour, and thy Redeemer, the Strong One of Jacob.) 16 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.
17 For brass I shall bring gold, and for iron I shall bring silver; and brass for wood, and iron for stones; and I shall set thy visitation peace, and thy prelates, either sovereigns, (to show) rightfulness (and I shall make thy rulers to act peacefully, and thy sovereigns to show righteousness and justice). 17 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 righteousness your ruler.
18 Wickedness shall no more be heard in thy land, neither destroying and defouling in thy coasts; and health shall occupy thy walls (and deliverance, or salvation, shall occupy thy walls), and praising shall occupy thy gates. 18 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.
19 The sun shall no more be to thee for to shine by day, neither the brightness of the moon shall lighten thee (by night); but the Lord shall be into everlasting light to thee, and thy God shall be into thy glory. 19 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.
20 Thy sun shall no more go down, and thy moon shall not be decreased; for the Lord shall be into everlasting light to thee, and the days of thy mourning shall be [ful]filled. 20 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.
21 Forsooth thy people, all just men, without end shall inherit the land (For thy people, all the just, or all the righteous, shall inherit the land forever), (yea,) the seed of my planting, the work of mine hand for to be glorified. 21 Then will all your people 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.

I am the LORD; in its time I will do this swiftly."
