Isaiah: 61

Good news of deliverance.  Is.61.1-62.12

1The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me,
because the LORD has anointed me
to bring good tidings to the afflicted Or: poor;
he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives,
and the opening of the prison Or: the opening of the eyesto those who are bound;
2to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor,
and the day of vengeance of our God;
to comfort all who mourn;
3to grant to those who mourn in Zion -
to give them a garland instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness instead of mourning,
the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit;
that they may be called oaks of righteousness,
the planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified.
4They shall build up the ancient ruins,
they shall raise up the former devastations;
they shall repair the ruined cities,
the devastations of many generations.

5Aliens shall stand and feed your flocks,
foreigners shall be your plowmen and vinedressers;
6but you shall be called the priests of the LORD,
men shall speak of you as the ministers of our God;
you shall eat the wealth of the nations,
and in their riches you shall glory.
7Instead of your shame you shall have a double portion,
instead of dishonor you Heb: they shall rejoice in your Heb: their lot;
therefore in your Heb: their land you Heb: they shall possess a double portion;
yours shall be everlasting joy.

8For I the LORD love justice,
I hate robbery and wrong; Or: robbery with a burnt offering
I will faithfully give them their recompense,
and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.
9Their descendants shall be known among the nations,
and their offspring in the midst of the peoples;
all who see them shall acknowledge them,
that they are a people whom the LORD has blessed.

10I will greatly rejoice in the LORD,
my soul shall exult in my God;
for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation,
he has covered me with the robe of righteousness,
as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland,
and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11For as the earth brings forth its shoots,
and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring up,
so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise
to spring forth before all the nations.
