18 I know everything you do and think! The time has now come[a] to bring together the people of every language and nation and to show them my glory 19 by proving what I can do.[b] I will send the survivors to Tarshish, Pul,[c] Lud, Meshech,[d] Tubal, Javan,[e] and to the distant islands. I will send them to announce my wonderful glory to nations that have never heard about me.

20 They will bring your relatives from the nations as an offering to me, the Lord. They will come on horses, chariots, wagons, mules, and camels[f] to Jerusalem, my holy mountain. It will be like the people of Israel bringing the right offering to my temple.
