The language is derived, doubtless, from the description in Isaiah 60:3-14. Compare Isaiah 49:23.

"Nations will come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising.
"Then you will see and be radiant, And your heart will thrill and rejoice; Because the abundance of the sea will be turned to you, The wealth of the nations will come to you.
"Foreigners will build up your walls, And their kings will minister to you; For in My wrath I struck you, And in My favor I have had compassion on you.
"You will also suck the milk of nations And suck the breast of kings; Then you will know that I, the LORD, am your Savior And your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.
and they will bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it;
