Isaiah 61:5-9

And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers. But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves. For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them. For I the LORD love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them. And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the LORD hath blessed.

 

Foreigners will serve the Israelites as farm hands and honoring them as priests and servants of our God. Gentile riches will come to the Jews, and the reproach of the centuries will be ended as the Lord’s people enjoy a double portion of honor. God will “remember” the injustice, robbery, and wrong that His chosen ones have suffered and will reward and make an everlasting covenant with them, so that the nations will acknowledge them as the blessed of the LORD.
