Isaiah 60:1-3*

From N W Lund – The Presence of Chiasmus in the Old Testament, The American Journal of Semitic Languages and Literatures, 1930, 26, 104-126.

Note: an amazing sometimes individual word based chiasm.

A. Arise,

B. shine;

C. for thy light is come,

D. and the glory

E. of the LORD

F. is risen upon thee.

G. 2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,

G’. and gross darkness the people:

F’. but upon thee shall arise

E’. the LORD,

D’. and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

C’. 3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light,

B’. and kings to the brightness

A’. of thy rising.
