Exaltation of the Afflicted

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:1 -

The Spirit of Lord Yahweh is upon me

Because Yahweh has anointed me

To bring good news to the [fn]afflicted;

He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,

To proclaim release to captives

And [fn]freedom to prisoners,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:2 -

To proclaim the favorable year of Yahweh

And the day of vengeance of our God,

To comfort all who mourn,

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:3 -

To grant those who mourn in Zion,

Giving them a headdress instead of ashes,

The oil of rejoicing instead of mourning,

The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting.

So they will be called [fn]oaks of righteousness,

The planting of Yahweh, that He may show forth His beautiful glory.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:4 -

Then they will rebuild the ancient waste places;

They will raise up the former desolations;

And they will make new the ruined cities,

The desolations from generation to generation.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:5 -

Strangers will stand and pasture your flocks,

And [fn]foreigners will be your farmers and your vinedressers.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:6 -

But you will be called the priests of Yahweh;

You will be spoken of as ministers of our God.

You will eat the wealth of nations,

And in their glories you will boast.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:7 -

Instead of your shame you will have a double portion,

And instead of dishonor they will shout for joy over their portion.

Therefore they will possess a double portion in their land;

Everlasting gladness will be theirs.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:8 -

For I, Yahweh, love justice,

I hate robbery [fn]in the burnt offering;

And in truth I will give them their recompense

And cut an everlasting covenant with them.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:9 -

Then their seed will be known among the nations,

And their offspring in the midst of the peoples.

All who see them will recognize them

Because they are the seed whom Yahweh has blessed.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:10 -

I will rejoice greatly in Yahweh;

My soul will rejoice in my God,

For He has clothed me with garments of salvation,

He has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness,

As a bridegroom decks himself with a headdress,

And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:11 -

For as the earth brings forth its branches,

And as a garden causes the things sown in it to branch out,

So Lord Yahweh will cause righteousness and praise

To branch out before all the nations.
