以赛亚书 60:15-18 Isaiah 60:15-18
你虽然被撇弃被厌恶，甚至无人经過，我却使你变为永遠的荣华，成为累代的喜乐。你也必吃万国的奶，又吃君王的奶。你便知道我―耶和华是你的救主，是你的救赎主，雅各的大能者。我要拿金子代替铜，拿银子代替铁，拿铜代替木头，拿铁代替石头；并要以和平为你的官长，以公义为你的监督。你地上不再听见强暴的事，境内不再听见荒凉毁灭的事。你必称你的墙为拯救，称你的门为赞美。“Though you were once despised and hated, with no one traveling through you, I will make you beautiful forever, a joy to all generations. Powerful kings and mighty nations will satisfy your every need, as though you were a child nursing at the breast of a queen. You will know at last that I, the Lord, am your Savior and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Israel. I will exchange your bronze for gold, your iron for silver, your wood for bronze, and your stones for iron. I will make peace your leader and righteousness your ruler. Violence will disappear from your land; the desolation and destruction of war will end. Salvation will surround you like city walls, and praise will be on the lips of all who enter there.
若耶和华能将普通的物质变成贵重的财宝，他能把普通的人物，你与我，改造为他贵重的仆人。 If the Lord could make mundane things into precious things, he could also transform ordinary people like you and I into His precious servants.
