Rise and Shine!
Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of
the LORD has risen upon you. 2 For darkness shall cover the earth,
and thick darkness the peoples; but the LORD will arise upon you,
and his glory will appear over you. 3 Nations shall come to your
light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. 4 Lift up your
eyes and look around; they all gather together, they come to you;
your sons shall come from far away, and your daughters shall be
carried on their nurses' arms. 5 Then you shall see and be radiant;
your heart shall thrill and rejoice, because the abundance of
the sea shall be brought to you, the wealth of the nations shall
come to you. 6 A multitude of camels shall cover you, the young
camels of Midian and Ephah; all those from Sheba shall come. They
shall bring gold and frankincense, and shall proclaim the praise
of the LORD.

Echoing the optimism of second Isaiah, this oracle is believed
to be written shortly after the return to Jerusalem. This is sort
of an ode to Jerusalem, looking forward to restoration and a return
to prominence among the nations. Camels are pretty happy about
their role in this one.
