Isaiah 61:8–11

8 “For pI, the Lord, love justice;

qI hate robbery 3for burnt offering;

I will direct their work in truth,

rAnd will make with them an everlasting covenant.

9 Their descendants shall be known among the Gentiles,

And their offspring among the people.

All who see them shall acknowledge them,

sThat they are the posterity whom the Lord has blessed.”

10 tI will greatly rejoice in the Lord,

My soul shall be joyful in my God;

For uHe has clothed me with the garments of salvation,

He has covered me with the robe of righteousness,

vAs a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments,

And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

11 For as the earth brings forth its bud,

As the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth,

So the Lord God will cause wrighteousness and xpraise to spring forth before all the nations.
