Chapter 61

1

The Spirit of the Adonay Yahweh is upon me; because Yahweh hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; 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;

2

to proclaim the year of Yahweh's favor, and the day of vengeance of our Elohim; to comfort all that mourn;

3

to appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them a garland for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of Yahweh, that he may be glorified.

4

And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.

5

And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and foreigners shall be your plowmen and your vine-dressers.

6

But ye shall be named the priests of Yahweh; men shall call you the ministers of our Elohim: ye shall eat the wealth of the nations, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.

7

Instead of your shame ye shall have double; and instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be unto them.

8

For I, Yahweh, love justice, I hate robbery with iniquity; and I will give them their recompense in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.

9

And their seed shall be known among the nations, and their offspring among the peoples; all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which Yahweh hath blessed.

10

I will greatly rejoice in Yahweh, my soul shall be joyful in my Elohim; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with a garland, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.

11

For as the earth bringeth forth its bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Adonay Yahweh will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.
