Isaiah 60:10 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Zion is now exhorted, as in Isaiah 49:18, to lift up her eyes, and turn them in all directions; for she is the object sought by an approaching multitude. "Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: they all crowd together, they come to thee: thy sons come from afar, and thy daughters are carried hither upon arms." The multitude that are crowding together and coming near are the diaspora of her sons and daughters that have been scattered far away (Isaiah 11:12), and whom the heathen that are now drawing near to her bring with them, conducting them and carrying them, so that they cling "to the side" (Isaiah 66:12) of those who are carrying them upon their arms and shoulders (Isaiah 49:22). תּאמנה is softened from תאמנּה, the pausal form for אתמנה (compare the softening in Ruth 1:13), from אמן, to keep, fasten, support; whence אמן, אמנת, a foster-father, a nurse who has a child in safe keeping.
