Wood from Lebanon at the new Temple (Isa 60:13-60:13)

“The glory of Lebanon

Shall come to you.

The cypress tree,

The plane tree,

The pine tree,

Will beautify the place

Of my sanctuary.

I will glorify

Where my feet rest.”

Just as the wood from the first Temple of King Solomon came from cypress trees in Lebanon so too the new Temple would also have cypress wood from Lebanon. The glorious cypress, plane, and pine trees would beautify the place of the new sanctuary. Yahweh wanted to glorify the place where his feet rested.
