Isaiah 61:1-3

THE SPIRIT OF THE SOVEREIGN LORD IS ON ME,

BECAUSE THE LORD HAS ANOINTED ME TO PROCLAIM GOOD NEWS TO THE POOR.

HE HAS SENT ME TO BIND UP THE BROKENHEARTED,

TO PROCLAIM FREEDOM FOR THE CAPTIVES

AND RELEASE FROM DARKNESS FOR THE PRISONERS,

TO PROCLAIM THE YEAR OF THE LORD’S FAVOR

AND THE DAY OF VENGEANCE OF OUR GOD,

TO COMFORT ALL WHO MOURN,
AND PROVIDE FOR THOSE WHO GRIEVE IN ZION—

TO BESTOW ON THEM A CROWN OF BEAUTY INSTEAD OF ASHES,

the oil of joy
instead of mourning,

and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.

They will be called oaks of righteousness,

a planting of the Lordfor the display of his splendor.
