Isaiah 61

61
LXI
1The Spirit of the Lord Jehovah is upon me;
Because Jehovah hath anointed me to publish glad tidings unto the afflicted;
He hath sent me to bind up the broken-hearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to them that are bound.
2To proclain the acceptable year of Jehovah,
And the day of vengeance of our God:
To comfort all that mourn;
3To appoint unto the mourners of Zion,
Yea, to give unto them ornament instead of ashes,
The oil of gladness instead of sorrow,
The garment of praise instead of a desponding spirit;
That they might be called: The Trees of Righteousness,
The Plantation of Jehovah, that He might be glorified.
4And they shall build up the old ruins,
They shall raise up the former desolations;
And shall repair the cities laid waste,
The desolations of many generations.
5And strangers shall stand up and feed your flocks;
And the sons of the alien shall be your husbandmen and vine-dressers.
6But ye shall be named, The Priests of Jehovah;
Men shall call you, The Ministers of our God:
Ye shall eat the riches of the nations,
And in their glory shall ye make your boast.
7Instead of your shame, ye shall have double;
And instead of reproach, they shall rejoice in their portion;
For in their land a double share shall they inherit:
Everlasting joy shall be unto them.
8For I Jehovah love jugment;
I hate rapine and iniquity;
And I will give them the reward of their work with faithfulness;
And I will make an everlasting covenant with them.
9And their seed shall be known among the nations,
And their offspring in the midst of the people:
All that see them shall acknowledge them,
That they are a seed which Jehovah hath blessed.
10I will greatly rejoice in Jehovah,
My soul shall be joyful in my God;
For he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation;
He hath covered me with the mantle of righteousness,
As a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments,
And as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
11For as the earth bringeth forth her bud;
And as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth:
So shall the Lord Jehovah cause righteousness and praise to spring forth,
In the presence of all the nations.

Isaiah 61

61
1 # Mt 11.5; Lk 4.18-19; 7.22. The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
because the Lord has anointed me
to bring good tidings to the afflicted;#61.1 Or poor
he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives,
and the opening of the prison#61.1 Or the opening of the eyes: Heb the opening to those who are bound;
2to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor,
and the day of vengeance of our God;
to comfort all who mourn;
3to grant to those who mourn in Zion—
to give them a garland instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness instead of mourning,
the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit;
that they may be called oaks of righteousness,
the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.
4They shall build up the ancient ruins,
they shall raise up the former devastations;
they shall repair the ruined cities,
the devastations of many generations.
5Aliens shall stand and feed your flocks,
foreigners shall be your plowmen and vinedressers;
6 # Ex 19.6; 1 Pet 2.5; Rev 1.6; 5.10; 20.6. but you shall be called the priests of the Lord,
men shall speak of you as the ministers of our God;
you shall eat the wealth of the nations,
and in their riches you shall glory.
7Instead of your shame you shall have a double portion,
instead of dishonor you#61.7 Heb they shall rejoice in your#61.7 Heb their lot;
therefore in your#61.7 Heb their land you#61.7 Heb they shall possess a double portion;
yours#61.7 Heb theirs shall be everlasting joy.
8For I the Lord love justice,
I hate robbery and wrong;#61.8 Or robbery with a burnt offering
I will faithfully give them their recompense,
and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.
9Their descendants shall be known among the nations,
and their offspring in the midst of the peoples;
all who see them shall acknowledge them,
that they are a people whom the Lord has blessed.
10I will greatly rejoice in the Lord,
my soul shall exult in my God;
for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation,
he has covered me with the robe of righteousness,
as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland,
and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11For as the earth brings forth its shoots,
and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring up,
so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise
to spring forth before all the nations.
