Post by Ken M. Penner » May 9th, 2012, 8:31 am

393. Lord's glory will shine on you (60:1-4)
60.1 Φωτίζου φωτίζου, ‌Ἰερουσαλήμ, ἥκει γάρ σου τὸ φῶς, καὶ ἡ δόξα Κυρίου ἐπὶ σὲ ἀνατέταλκεν. 2 ἰδοὺ σκότος καὶ γνόφος καλύψει γῆν ἐπʼ ἔθνη· ἐπὶ δὲ σὲ φανήσεται Κύριος, καὶ ἡ δόξα αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ σὲ ὀφθήσεται. 3 καὶ πορεύσονται βασιλεῖς τῷ φωτί σου καὶ ἔθνη τῇ λαμπρότητί σου. 4 ἆρον κύκλῳ τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς σου καὶ ἰδὲ συνηγμένα τὰ τέκνα σου· ἥκασιν πάντες οἱ υἱοί σου μακρόθεν, καὶ αἱ θυγατέρες σου ἐπʼ ὤμων ἀρθήσονται.
394. Foreigners will bring you gifts (60:5-7)
5 τότε ὄψῃ καὶ φοβηθήσῃ καὶ ἐκστήσῃ τῇ καρδίᾳ σου, ὅτι μεταβαλεῖ ἐπί σε πλῆθος θαλάσσης καὶ ἐθνῶν καὶ λαῶν. καὶ ἕξουσίν σοι 6 ἀγέλαι καμήλων, καὶ καλύψουσίν σε κάμηλοι Μαδιὰμ καὶ Γαιφάρ· πάντες ἐκ Σαβὰ ἥξουσιν φέροντες χρυσίον καὶ λίβανον οἴσουσιν καὶ λίθον τίμιον καὶ τὸ σωτήριον Κυρίου εὐαγγελιοῦνταις σοι. 7 καὶ πάντα τὰ πρόβατα Κηδὰρ συναχθήσονταί σοι, καὶ κριοὶ Ναβαιὼθ ἥξουσίν σοι, καὶ ἀνενεχθήσεται δῶρα δεκτὰ ἐπὶ τὸ θυσιαστήριόν μου, καὶ ὁ οἶκος τῆς προσευχῆς μου δοξασθήσεται.

395. Distant lands will restore your children (60:8-9)
8 Τίνες οἵδε ὡς νεφέλαι πέτονται καὶ ὡς περιστεραὶ σὺν νοσσοῖς; 9 ἐμὲ αἱ νῆσοι ὑπέμειναν καὶ πλοῖα Θαρσὶς ἐν πρώτοις, ἀγαγεῖν τὰ τέκνα σου μακρόθεν καὶ τὸν ἄργυρον καὶ τὸν χρυσὸν αὐτῶν μετʼ αὐτῶν διὰ τὸ ὄνομα Κυρίου τὸ ἅγιον καὶ διὰ τὸν ἅγιον τοῦ Ἰσραὴλ ἔνδοξον εἶναι.
396. Nations will serve you (60:10-12)
10 καὶ οἰκοδομήσουσιν ἀλλογενεῖς τὰ τείχη σου, καὶ οἱ βασιλεῖς αὐτῶν παραστήσονταί σοι· διὰ γὰρ ὀργήν μου ἐπάταξά σε καὶ διὰ ἔλεον ἠγάπησά σε. 11 καὶ ἀνοιχθήσονται αἱ πύλαι σου διὰ παντός, ἡμέρας καὶ νυκτὸς οὐ κλεισθήσονται, εἰσαγαγεῖν πρὸς σὲ δύναμιν ἐθνῶν καὶ βασιλεῖς ἀγομένους. 12 τὰ γὰρ ἔθνη καὶ οἱ βασιλεῖς, οἵτινες οὐ δουλεύσουσίν σοι, ἀπολοῦνται, καὶ τὰ ἔθνη ἐρημίᾳ ἐρημωθήσονται.
397. Your oppressors will serve you (60:13-16)
13 καὶ ἡ δόξα τοῦ Λιβάνου πρὸς σὲ ἥξει ἐν κυπαρίσσῳ καὶ πεύκῃ καὶ κέδρῳ ἅμα, δοξάσαι τὸν τόπον τὸν ἅγιόν μου. 14 καὶ πορεύσονται πρὸς σὲ δεδοικότες υἱοὶ ταπεινωσάντων σε καὶ παροξυνάντων σε, καὶ κληθήσῃ Πόλις Κυρίου Σιὼν Ἀγίου‌ Ἰσραήλ. 15 διὰ τὸ γεγενῆσθαί σε ἐγκαταλελειμμένην καὶ μεμισημένην καὶ οὐκ ἦν ὁ βοηθῶν, καὶ θήσω σε ἀγαλλίαμα αἰώνιον, εὐφροσύνην γενεῶν γενεαῖς. 16 καὶ θηλάσεις γάλα ἐθνῶν καὶ πλοῦτον βασιλέων φάγεσαι· καὶ γνώσῃ ὅτι ἐγὼ Κύριος ὁ σῴζων σε ἐξαιρούμενός σε θεὸς Ἰσραήλ.
398. Future prosperity, righteousness, peace, and light from Lord (60:17-21)
17 καὶ ἀντὶ χαλκοῦ οἴσω σοι χρυσίον, ἀντὶ δὲ σιδήρου οἴσω σοι ἀργύριον, ἀντὶ δὲ ξύλων οἴσω σοι χαλκόν, ἀντὶ δὲ λίθων σίδηρον. καὶ δώσω τοὺς ἄρχοντάς σου ἐν εἰρήνῃ καὶ τοὺς ἐπισκόπους σου ἐν δικαιοσύνῃ· 18 καὶ οὐκέτι ἀκουσθήσονται ἀδικία ἐν τῇ γῇ σου οὐδὲ σύντριμμα οὐδὲ ταλαιπωρία ἐν τοῖς ὁρίοις σου, ἀλλὰ κληθήσονται Σωτήριον τὰ τείχη σου, καὶ αἱ πύλαι σου Γλύμμα. 19 καὶ οὐκ ἔσται ὁ ἥλιος εἰς φῶς ἡμέρας, οὔτε ἀνατολὴ σελήνης φωτιεῖ σε τὴν νύκτα, ἀλλʼ ἔσται σοι Κύριος φῶς αἰώνιον καὶ ὁ θεὸς δόξα σου. 20 οὐ γὰρ δύσεται ὁ ἥλιός σοι, καὶ ἡ σελήνη σοι οὐκ ἐκλείψει· ἔσται γὰρ Κύριός ὁ θεός σοι φῶς αἰώνιον, καὶ ἀναπληρωθήσονται αἱ ἡμέραι τοῦ πένθους σου. 21 καὶ ὁ λαός σου πᾶς δίκαιος, καὶ διʼ αἰῶνος κληρονομήσουσιν τὴν γῆν,
399. The least will be great (60:21-22)
φυλάσσων τὸ φύτευμα, ἔργα χειρῶν αὐτῶν εἰς δόξαν. 22 ὁ ὀλιγοστὸς ἔσται εἰς χιλιάδας καὶ ὁ ἐλάχιστος ἔσται εἰς ἔθνος μέγα· ἐγὼ Κύριος κατὰ καιρὸν συνάξω αὐτούς.

Isaiah Chapter 60 translation

Post by Ken M. Penner » May 10th, 2012, 11:58 am

393. Lord's glory will shine on you (60:1-4)
60.1 Shine, shine, Jerusalem, for your light has come, and the glory of Lord has risen upon you. 2 Look, darkness and gloom will cover land over nations, the Lord will shine over you, and his glory will be seen over you. 3 And kings will walk by your light; and nations by your brightness. 4 Lift up your eyes all around and see your children gathered together; all your sons have come from far away, and your daughters will be carried on shoulders.

394. Foreigners will bring you gifts (60:5-7)
5 Then you will see and be afraid and be amazed in your heart, because the multitude of sea and nations and peoples will pass over to you. And herds of camels will have it for you, 6 and camels of Madiam and of Gaipha will cover you; all people will come from Sabaa bringing gold, and they will bring frankincense and a valuable stone, also to those bringing the good news of the salvation of Lord to you. 7 And all the sheep of Kedar will be gathered to you, and the rams of Nabaioth will come to you, and acceptable gifts will be offered upon my altar, and my house of prayer will be glorified.

395. Distant lands will restore your children (60:8-9)
8 Who are these that fly like clouds and like doves with nestlings? 9 The islands have waited for me, and ships of Tharsis in former times, to bring your children from far away, and their silver and gold with them because of the holy name of Lord, and because he is the holy one of Israel.
396. Nations will serve you (60:10-12)
10 And strangers will build your walls, and their kings will stand by you, for I struck you because of my wrath and I have loved you because of mercy. 11 And your gates will always be open; they will not be closed day and night, to bring in to you the might of the nations, and escorted kings. 12 For whatever nations and kings will not serve you will perish, and the nations will be desolated with desolation.
397. Your oppressors will serve you (60:13-16)
13 And the glory of Lebanon will come to you in cypress and pine and cedar together, to magnify my holy place. 14 And the sons of those who humbled and provoked you will come terrified to you, and you will be called City of Lord, Sion of the Holy One of Israel. 15 Because you have become forsaken and hated and there was no-one who helped. I will give you eternal rejoicing, joy for generations of generations. 16 And you will suck the milk of nations and you will eat the wealth of kings, and you will know that I am Lord who saves you, and the God of Israel who brings you out.
398. Future prosperity, righteousness, peace, and light from Lord (60:17-21)
17 And instead of brass I will bring you gold, and instead of iron I will bring you silver, and instead of wood I will bring you brass, and instead of stones, iron. And I will provide your rulers with peace, and your supervisors with righteousness. 18 And injustice will no longer be heard in your land, nor oppression or trouble within your boundaries, but your walls will be called Salvation, and your gates Engraving. 19 And the sun will not serve as light of day, and the rising of the moon will not illuminate you by night, but rather Lord will be an eternal light for you, and God will be your glory. 20 For the sun will not set for you, and the moon will not fail you. For Lord God will be an eternal light for you, and the days of your mourning will be completed. 21 And all your people will be righteous, and they will inherit the earth through eternity.
399. The least will be great (60:21-22)
One who watches the planting, the works of their hands, are for glory. 22 The least person will be like a thousand, and the smallest will become a great nation; I, Lord, will gather them at the right time.
