Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
9 For then [changing their impure language] I will give to the people a clear and pure speech from pure lips, that they may all call upon the name of the Lord, to serve Him with one unanimous consent and one united shoulder [bearing the yoke of the Lord].
10 From beyond the rivers of Cush or Ethiopia those who pray to Me, the daughter of My dispersed people, will bring and present My offering.
11 In that day you [the congregation of Israel] shall not be put to shame for all your deeds by which you have rebelled and transgressed against Me, for then I will take away out of your midst those who exult in your majesty and pride; and you shall no more be haughty [and carry yourselves arrogantly on or] because of My holy mountain.Read full chapter
New International Version
Restoration of Israel’s Remnant
9 “Then I will purify the lips of the peoples,
that all of them may call(A) on the name of the Lord(B)
and serve(C) him shoulder to shoulder.
10 From beyond the rivers of Cush[a](D)
my worshipers, my scattered people,
will bring me offerings.(E)
11 On that day you, Jerusalem, will not be put to shame(F)
for all the wrongs you have done to me,(G)
because I will remove from you
your arrogant boasters.(H)
Never again will you be haughty
on my holy hill.(I)
