The ministry of the Anointed of Jehovah, Christ as the Servant of Jehovah, issuing in the restoration of Israel
The ministry of the Anointed of Jehovah
bSpirit of the 2Lord
Jehovah is upon Me,
Because Jehovah has canointed
To bring dgood
news to the afflicted;
He has sent Me to ebind
up the wounds of the brokenhearted,
To proclaim fliberty
to the captives,
And the opening of the eyes to those who are bound;
To proclaim the 1aacceptable
year of Jehovah
And the day of vengeance of our God;
all who mourn;
To grant to those who mourn in Zion,
To give to them a headdress instead of ashes,
The oil of gladness instead of amourning
The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called the terebinths of righteousness,
of Jehovah, that He may be glorified.
The restoration of Israel
And they will arebuild
the ancient ruins;
They will raise up the former desolations;
And they will repair the cities of waste,
The desolations of generation upon generation.
And strangers will stand and feed your flocks,
And the sons of the foreigner will be your plowmen and vinedressers.
But you will be called the 1apriests
People will speak of you as the ministers of our God.
You will eat the bwealth
And you will boast in their glory.
Instead of your shame there will be a double portion,
And instead of humiliation they will give a ringing shout for their portion.
Therefore in their land they will possess double;
Eternal joy will be theirs.
For I, Jehovah, love ajustice
I hate robbery 1with
And I will faithfully give them their recompense,
And I will make an eternal bcovenant
Then their seed will be known among the nations,
And their offspring in the midst of the peoples;
All who see them will acknowledge them,
That they are the seed whom Jehovah has blessed.
I will rejoice greatly in Jehovah,
My soul will exult in my God;
For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation,
He has wrapped me with the robe of righteousness;
I am like a bridegroom who wears the headdress of the priest,
And like a abride
who adorns herself with her jewels.
For as the earth brings forth its sprout,
And as the garden causes the things sown in it to spring up,
So will the Lord Jehovah cause righteousness and praise
To spring up before all the nations.
