15 Although you had been forsaken and abhorred,
with none passing through your land, yet I will make you an everlasting pride,
the joy of generation after generation. 16 You will suck the milk of the nations,
suckling at the breasts of kings. Then shall you know that I, Jehovah,
am your Savior, that your Redeemer is the Valiant One of Jacob.


17 In place of copper I will bring gold,
in place of iron, silver; in place of wood I will bring copper,
in place of stones, iron. I will make peace your rulers
and righteousness your oppressors: 18 tyranny shall no more be heard of in your land,
nor dispossession or disaster within your borders; you will regard salvation as your walls
and homage as your gates.


19 No longer shall the sun be your light by day,


nor the brightness of the moon your illumination at night:


Jehovah will be your everlasting light
and your God your radiant glory.


20 Your sun shall set no more,


nor your moon wane:


to you Jehovah shall be an endless light
when your days of mourning are fulfilled.


21 Your entire people shall be righteous;
they shall inherit the earth forever—


they are the branch I have planted,
the work of my hands, in which I am glorified. 22 The least of them shall become a clan,
the youngest a mighty nation. I Jehovah will hasten it in its time.
