first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with
them, unto the name of the LORD thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel,

ISA 60:10 And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their
kings shall minister unto thee: for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my
favour have I had mercy on thee.
ISA 60:11 Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not
be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the
Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought.
ISA 60:12 For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall
perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.
