1 The Spirit of the Lord Yahweh is on me;
because Yahweh has anointed me to preach good news to the humble. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives,
and release to those who are bound; 2 to proclaim the year of Yahweh's favor, and the day of vengeance
of our God; to comfort all who mourn; 3 to appoint to those
who mourn in Zion, to give to them a garland for ashes, the oil
of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of
heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the
planting of Yahweh, that he may be glorified.

4 They shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former
desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the
desolations of many generations. 5 Strangers shall stand and
feed your flocks, and foreigners shall be your plowmen and your
vinedressers. 6 But you shall be named the priests of
Yahweh; men will call you the ministers of our God: you will eat
the wealth of the nations, and you will boast in their glory.

7 Instead of your shame [you shall have] double; and instead of
dishonor they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their
land they shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be to them.

8 "For I, Yahweh, love justice, I hate robbery with iniquity; and
I will give them their recompense in truth, and I will make an
everlasting covenant with them. 9 Their seed shall be known
among the nations, and their offspring among the peoples; all who
see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which
Yahweh has blessed."

10 I will greatly rejoice in Yahweh, my soul shall be joyful 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. 11 For as the earth brings forth its bud, and as the
garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so
the Lord Yahweh will cause righteousness and praise to spring
forth before all the nations.
