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. Therefore thy gates shall be open continually, they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces (WEALTH is the marginal reading) of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought : For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish ; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.
