Isaiah 61:1–4

MESSIAH’S JUBILEE

61 The Spirit of the Lord God is on me,ai

because the Lord has anointed me

to bring good news to the poor.aj

He has sent me to healA the brokenhearted,

to proclaim liberty to the captives

and freedom to the prisoners;a

to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor,b

and the day of our God’s vengeance;c

to comfortd all who mourn,

to provide for those who mourn in Zion;

to give them a crown of beauty instead of ashes,

festive oil instead of mourning,e

and splendid clothes instead of despair.B

And they will be called righteous trees,

planted by the Lord

to glorify him.f

They will rebuild the ancient ruins;g

they will restore the former devastations;

they will renew the ruined cities,

the devastations of many generations.
