Isaiah 61


61:1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD [is] upon me; because the LORD
 hath anointed me to publish good tidings to 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;
61:2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of
 vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
61:3 To appoint to them that mourn in Zion, to give to them
 beauty 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 the LORD, that he may
 be glorified.
61:4 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.
61:5 And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the
 sons of the alien [shall be] your plowmen and your
 vine-dressers.
61:6 But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD: [men] shall
 call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of
 the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.
61:7 For your shame [ye shall have] double; and [for] confusion
 they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land
 they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be to
 them.
61:8 For I the LORD love judgment, I hate robbery for
 burnt-offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I
 will make an everlasting covenant with them.
61:9 And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their
 offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge
 them, that they [are] the seed [which] the LORD hath blessed.
61:10 I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be
 joyful in my God; 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 ornaments, and as a
 bride adorneth [herself] with her jewels.
61:11 For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden
 causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the
 Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth
 before all the nations.
