Isaiah 49:23

Isaiah 49:23

And kings shall be thy nursing fathers, and their queens thy nursing mothers: they shall bow down to thee with their face toward the earth, and lick up the dust of thy feet; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD: for they shall not be ashamed that wait for me.

a. NLT: Kings and queens will serve you and care for all your needs. They will bow to the earth before you and lick the dust from your feet. Then you will know that I am the LORD. Those who trust in me will never be put to shame.”

b. NIV: Kings will be your foster fathers, and their queens your nursing mothers. They will bow down before you with their faces to the ground; they will lick the dust at your feet. Then you will know that I am the LORD; those who hope in me will not be disappointed.”

c. YLT: And kings have been thy nursing fathers, And their princesses thy nursing mothers; Face to the earth -- they bow down to thee, And the dust of thy feet they lick up, And thou hast known that I am Jehovah, That those expecting Me are not ashamed.

d. Amplified Bible: “Kings will be your attendants, And their princesses your nurses.
They will bow down to you with their faces to the earth And lick the dust of your feet;
And you shall know [with an understanding based on personal experience] that I am the Lord; For they shall not be put to shame who wait and hope expectantly for Me.

e. Septuagint: And kings shall be thy nursing fathers, and their princesses thy nurses, they shall bow down to thee on the face of the earth, and shall lick the dust of thy feet; and thou shalt know that I am the Lord, and they that wait on me shall not be ashamed. 

f. Stone Edition Torah/Prophets/Writings: Kings will be your nurturersand their princesses your wet nurses. With faces to the ground they will prostrate themselves to you; they will lick the dust of your feet. Then you will know that I am HASHEM, and those Who put their hopes in Me shall not be ashamed.

1). This verse surely fits in with other passages that speak of the rulers of the world paying homage to by bringing their nations wealth to homor Christ Jesus, the King of the Universe, King of the world, and the King of Israel. There will also be a substantial amount of honor and respect given to the Jewish nation and people.
