Chapter 60

The Dawning of Divine Glory for Zion

[a]Arise! Shine, for your light has come,
    the glory of the Lord has dawned upon you.(A)
Though darkness covers the earth,
    and thick clouds, the peoples,
Upon you the Lord will dawn,
    and over you his glory will be seen.

Footnotes

  1. 60:1–9 The light the prophet proclaims to Zion symbolizes the blessing to come to her: the glory of the Lord, the return of her children, the wealth of nations who themselves will walk by her light. The passage is famous from its use in the Latin liturgy for the feast of Epiphany.
