No longer will you hear
about violence in your land or desolation and destruction within your
borders. You will call your walls Salvation and your gates Praise.
The sun will no longer
be your light during the day, nor will the brightness of the moon give
you light, But the LORD will be your everlasting light. Your God will
be your glory.
Your sun will no longer
go down, nor will your moon disappear. The LORD will be your
everlasting light, and your days of sadness will be over.
Then all your people
will be righteous, and they will possess the land permanently. They
will be the seedling I have planted, the honored work of my hands.
The smallest of them will
become a family. The weakest of them will become a mighty nation. At
the right time I, the LORD, will make it happen quickly.”
~ Isaiah 60:18-22, God’s Word translation
