Messiah’s Jubilee
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:1 -

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is on me,

because the LORD has anointed me

to bring good news to the poor.

to proclaim liberty to the captives

and freedom to the prisoners;

to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor,

and the day of our God’s vengeance;

to comfort all who mourn,

to provide for those who mourn in Zion;

to give them a crown of beauty instead of ashes,

and splendid clothes instead of despair.[fn]

And they will be called righteous trees,

planted by the LORD

to glorify him.

and you will boast in their riches.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:7 -

In place of your shame, you will have a double portion;

in place of disgrace, they will rejoice over their share.

So they will possess double in their land,

and eternal joy will be theirs.

I rejoice greatly in the LORD,

I exult in my God;

for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation

and wrapped me in a robe of righteousness,

as a groom wears a turban

and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:11 -

For as the earth produces its growth,

and as a garden enables what is sown to spring up,

so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise

to spring up before all the nations.
