Exaltation of the Afflicted

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:1 - The Spirit of the Lord [fn]GOD is upon me,
Because the LORD has anointed me
To bring good news to the [fn]afflicted;
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to captives
And [fn]freedom to prisoners;

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:2 - To proclaim the favorable year of the LORD
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 garland instead of ashes,
The oil of gladness 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 the LORD, that He may be glorified.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:4 - Then they will rebuild the ancient ruins,
They will raise up the former devastations;
And they will repair the ruined cities,
The desolations of many generations.

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 the LORD;
You will be spoken of as ministers of our God.
You will eat the wealth of nations,
And in their [fn]riches you will boast.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:7 - Instead of your shame you will have a double portion,
And instead of humiliation they will shout for joy over their portion.
Therefore they will possess a double portion in their land,
Everlasting joy will be theirs.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:8 - For I, the LORD, love justice,
I hate robbery [fn]in the burnt offering;
And I will faithfully give them their recompense
And make an everlasting covenant with them.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:9 - Then their offspring will be known among the nations,
And their descendants in the midst of the peoples.
All who see them will recognize them
Because they are the offspring whom the LORD has blessed.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:10 - I will rejoice greatly in the LORD,
My soul will exult 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 garland,
And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 61:11 - For as the earth brings forth its sprouts,
And as a garden causes the things sown in it to spring up,
So the Lord [fn]GOD will cause righteousness and praise
To spring up before all the nations.
