The gathering in Jerusalem (Isa 66:18-66:18)

“I know their works.

I know their thoughts.

I am coming to gather all the nations.

I will gather all tongues.

They shall come.

They shall see my glory.”

There will be one great reunion at Jerusalem. Yahweh was going to gather all their works and thoughts from all the nations, no matter what language they spoke. They all would come to see the glory of Yahweh.

The happy reunion (Isa 60:4-60:5)

“Lift up your eyes!

Look around!

They all gather together.

They come to you.

Your sons

Shall come from far away.

Your daughters

Shall be carried on their nurse’s arms.

Then you shall see.

You shall be radiant.

Your heart shall thrill.

Your heart shall rejoice.

Because the abundance of the sea

Shall be brought to you.

The wealth of the nations

Shall come to you.”

Jerusalem should lift up its eyes. They should look around and see all the people coming together. Their sons were coming from far away. Their daughters were being carried by their nurses. There will be rejoicing because of the abundance of the sea and the wealth that they are bringing back to Jerusalem.
