Isaiah 60:1 et seq is surely worth a good read. And our brothers who are of the lineage of David (as Jesus Christ is) can rest on this: Isaiah 60:18 Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise.
