The righteous people (Isa 60:21-60:22)

“Your people shall all be righteous.

They shall possess the land forever.

They are the shoot

That I planted.

They are the work of my hands.

Thus I might be glorified.

The least of them

Shall become a clan.

The smallest one

Shall become a mighty nation.

I am Yahweh.

In its time,

I will accomplish it quickly.”

Yahweh, in the first person singular, says that all his people will be righteous and possess the land forever. They are the shoots that he has planted, the work of his hands, so that he could be glorified. The least of them will become a clan and the smallest a mighty nation. Yahweh ends by saying it will take time, but it will be done quickly.
