Isaiah 58:6–12

Is not this the fast that I have chosen?

To loose tthe bands of wickedness,

uTo undo the heavy burdens,

And xto let the oppressed go free,

And that ye break every yoke?

Is it not yzto deal thy bread to the hungry,

And ythat thou bring the poor that are ||cast out ato thy house?

zbWhen thou seest the naked, that thou cover him;

And that thou hide not thyself from cthine own flesh?

dThen shall thy light break forth as the morning,

And thine ehealth shall spring forth speedily:

And thy righteousness shall go before thee;

The glory of the Lord shall be thy rereward.

Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall answer;

Thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am.

If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke,

fThe putting forth of the finger, and gspeaking vanity;

10  And if thou hdraw out thy soul ito the hungry,

And ksatisfy the afflicted soul;

dThen shall thy light rise in obscurity,

And thy darkness be as the noonday:

11  And the Lord shall guide thee lcontinually,

And ksatisfy thy soul in drought,

And make fat thy bones:

And thou shalt be mlike a watered garden,

And like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.

12  And they that shall be of thee nshall build the old owaste places:

Thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations;

And thou shalt be called, pThe repairer of the breach,

The restorer of paths to dwell in.
