Isaiah 58:6–8 — The New International Version (NIV)

“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:

to loose the chains of injustice

and untie the cords of the yoke,

to set the oppressed free

and break every yoke?

Is it not to share your food with the hungry

and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—

when you see the naked, to clothe them,

and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?

Then your light will break forth like the dawn,

and your healing will quickly appear;

then your righteousness will go before you,

and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.

and bring the homeless poor into your house;

when you see the naked, to cover him,

and not to hide yourself from your own flesh?

Then shall your light break forth like the dawn,

and your healing shall spring up speedily;

your righteousness shall go before you;

the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.

And that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house?

When thou seest the naked, that thou cover him;

And thine health shall spring forth speedily:

And thy righteousness shall go before thee;

The glory of the Lord shall be thy rereward.

Free those who are wrongly imprisoned;

lighten the burden of those who work for you.

Share your food with the hungry,

and give shelter to the homeless.

Give clothes to those who need them,

Then your light will shine like the dawn,

and your wounds will quickly heal.

Your God will walk before you,

and the glory of the Lord will protect you from behind.
