Isaiah 58

58:1 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and
 show my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob
 their sins.
58:2 Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a
 nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of
 their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take
 delight in approaching to God.
58:3 Why have we fasted, [say they], and thou seest not? [why]
 have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge?
 Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all
 your labors.
58:4 Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with
 the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as [ye do this] day,
 to make your voice to be heard on high.
58:5 Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to
 afflict his soul? [is it] to bow down his head as a bulrush,
 and to spread sackcloth and ashes [under him]? wilt thou call
 this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD?
58:6 [Is] not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the
 bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the
 oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
58:7 [Is it] not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou
 shouldst bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when
 thou seest the naked, that thou shouldst cover him; and that
 thou shouldst not hide thyself from thy own flesh?
58:8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thy
 health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall
 go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rear-ward.
58:9 Then shalt thou call, and the LORD will answer; thou shalt
 cry, and he will say, Here I [am]. If thou shalt take away from
 the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger,
 and speaking vanity;
58:10 And [if] thou shalt draw out thy soul to the hungry, and
 satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in
 obscurity, and thy darkness [be] as the noon day:
58:11 And the LORD will guide thee continually, and satisfy thy
 soul in drouth, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like
 a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail
58:12 And [they that shall be] of thee shall build the old waste
 places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many
 generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the
 breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.
58:13 If thou shalt turn away thy foot from the sabbath, [from]
 doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a
 delight, the holy of the LORD, honorable; and shalt honor him,
 not doing thy own ways, nor finding thy own pleasure, nor
 speaking [thy own] words:
58:14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will
 cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed
 thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of
 the LORD hath spoken [it].
