“A multitude of camels will cover you,
The young camels of Midian and (A)Ephah;
All those from (B)Sheba will come;
They will bring (C)gold and frankincense,
And will (D)bear good news of the praises of the Lord.
“All the flocks of (E)Kedar will be gathered together to you,
The rams of Nebaioth will minister to you;
They will go up with acceptance on My (F)altar,
And I shall [a](G)glorify My [b]glorious house.
(H)Who are these who fly like a cloud
And like the doves to their [c]lattices?
“Surely the (I)coastlands will wait for Me;
And the (J)ships of Tarshish will come first,
To (K)bring your sons from afar,
Their silver and their gold with them,
For the name of the Lord your God,
And for the Holy One of Israel because He has [d](L)glorified you.

18 “For I [a]know their works and their (A)thoughts; [b]the time is coming to (B)gather all nations and tongues. And they shall come and see My glory. 19 I will set a (C)sign among them and will send survivors from them to the nations: (D)Tarshish, [c]Put, (E)Lud, [d]Meshech, (F)Tubal and [e]Javan, to the distant (G)coastlands that have neither heard My fame nor seen My glory. And they will (H)declare My glory among the nations. 20 Then they shall (I)bring all your brethren from all the nations as a grain offering to the Lord, on horses, in chariots, in litters, on mules and on camels, to My (J)holy mountain Jerusalem,” says the Lord, “just as the sons of Israel bring their grain offering in a (K)clean vessel to the house of the Lord. 21 I will also take some of them for (L)priests and for Levites,” says the Lord.
