All nations will turn to Israel (Isa 45:14-45:14)

“Thus says Yahweh.

‘The wealth of Egypt

With the merchandise of Ethiopia,

With the Sabeans,

Tall of stature,

Shall come over to you.

They will be yours.

They shall follow you.

They shall come over in chains.

They shall bow down to you.’”

Second Isaiah talks about everyone coming to Jerusalem. The wealth of the Egyptians and the Ethiopian merchandise would come to Israel. The Sabeans or the tall people of Sheba, the southern Arabs, lived in what is today Yemen. All these people will come to Israel in chains following the Israelites, where they will bow down to these Israelites.
