61 aThe Spirit of the Lord God is upon me;
gTo proclaim liberty to the captives,
And hthe opening of the prison to them that are bound;
2 iTo proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
And kthe day of vengeance of our God;
lTo comfort all that mourn;
3 To appoint unto lthem that mourn in Zion,
oThe oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they might be called ptrees of righteousness,
4 And sthey shall build the old wastes,
They shall raise up the former desolations,
And they shall repair the waste cities,
tThe desolations of many generations.
5 And ustrangers shall stand and feed your flocks,
6 But xye shall be named the Priests of the Lord:
Men shall call you the Ministers of our God:
yYe shall eat the riches of the Gentiles,
And zin their glory shall ye boast yourselves.
7 For your shame aye shall have double;
And for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion:
Everlasting joy shall be unto them.
8 For cI the Lord love judgment,
dI hate robbery for burnt offering;
And I will direct their ework in truth,
And fI will make an everlasting covenant with them.
9 And gtheir seed shall be known among the Gentiles,
And htheir offspring among the people:
All that see them shall acknowledge them,
iThat they are the seed which the Lord hath blessed.
10 jI will greatly rejoice in the Lord,
My soul shall be joyful in my God;
For khe hath clothed me with the garments of salvation,
He hath covered me with lthe robe of righteousness,
And as the garden causeth pthe things that are sown in it to spring forth;
Before all the nations.
