Isaiah 61


The Anointed One

1Spirit of the  lord is upon me, because he anointed me to announce good news to the poor. He has sent me to heal the ones being broken in the heart; to proclaim [2to captives 1a release], and [2to the blind 1recovery of sight]; 2to call [2year 3of the  lord 1the acceptable], and day of recompense; to comfort all the ones mourning; 3to give to the ones mourning for Zion glory instead of ashes; an anointing of gladness to them that mourn; according to an apparel of glory instead of a spirit of indifference. And they shall be called generations of righteousness, a thing planted of the  lord for glory. 4And they shall build up [2wildernesses 1everlasting] being made quite desolate prior. They shall rise up and shall revive cities of wildernesses having been made quite desolate for generations. 5And [2shall come 1foreigners] tending your sheep, and Philistines as plowmen and vine dressers. 6And you [2priests 3of the  lord 1shall be called]. Ministers of our God -- it shall be said to you. [2strength 3of nations 1You shall devour], and in their riches you shall be admired. 7Thus of a second time they shall inherit the land, and [2gladness 1everlasting] is above their head. 8For I am the  lord, the one loving righteousness, and detesting seizures by injustice. And I will give their effort to the just ones, and [3covenant 2an eternal 1I shall ordain] with them. 9And [2shall be known 3among 4the 5nations 1their seed], and their progeny in the midst of the peoples. All seeing them will recognize them, for these are a seed being blessed by God. 10And in gladness they shall be glad over the  lord. Let [2exult 1my soul] over the  lord! For he clothed me with a cloak of deliverance, and an inner garment of gladness. As a groom, he put on me a mitre; and as a bride, he adorned me with an ornament. 11And as the earth growing its flower, and as a garden [2its seeds 1sprouts forth], so [3will raise up 1the Lord 2the  lord] righteousness and a leap for joy before all the nations.
