To proclaim fliberty to the captives,
And the opening of the eyes to those who are bound;

And the day of vengeance of our God;
To bcomfort all who mourn;
Isa. 61 :3 61:3 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,
The bplanting of Jehovah, that He may be glorified.

The desolations of generation upon generation.

And the sons of the foreigner will be your plowmen and vinedressers.

People will speak of you as the ministers of our God.
You will eat the bwealth of nations,
And you will boast in their glory.

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.

And I will faithfully give them their recompense,
And I will make an eternal bcovenant with them.

That they are the seed whom Jehovah has blessed.

My soul will exult in my God;

And like a abride who adorns herself with her jewels.
Isa. 61 :11 61:11 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.
