Exaltation of the Afflicted1 The a Spirit of the Lord ▼
▼ Heb YHWH, usually rendered LordGod is upon me,
Because the Lord has anointed me
To c bring good news to the ▼
▼ Or humble, e afflicted;
He has sent me to f bind up the brokenhearted,
To g proclaim liberty to captives
▼ Lit opening to those who are boundfreedom to prisoners;
2 To i proclaim the favorable year of the Lord
And the j day of vengeance of our God;
To k comfort all who mourn,
3 To l grant those who mourn in Zion,
Giving them a garland instead of ashes,
The m oil of gladness instead of mourning,
The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting.
So they will be called ▼
▼ Or terebinths, o oaks of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.
4 Then they will p rebuild the ancient ruins,
They will raise up the former devastations;
And they will repair the ruined cities,
The desolations of many generations.
5 q Strangers will stand and pasture your flocks,
▼ Lit sons of the foreignerforeigners will be your farmers and your vinedressers.
6 But you will be called the s priests of the Lord;
You will be spoken of as t ministers of our God.
You will eat the u wealth of nations,
And in their ▼
▼ Or gloryriches you will boast.
7 Instead of your w shame you will have a x double portion,
And instead of humiliation they will shout for joy over their portion.
Therefore they will possess a double portion in their land,
y Everlasting joy will be theirs.
8 For I, the Lord z love justice,
I hate robbery ▼
▼ Or with iniquityin the burnt offering;
And I will faithfully give them their recompense
And make an ab everlasting covenant with them.
9 Then their offspring will be known among the nations,
And their descendants in the midst of the peoples.
All who see them will recognize them
Because they are the ac offspring whom the Lord has blessed.
10 I will ad rejoice greatly in the Lord,
My soul will exult in ae my God;
For He has af clothed me with garments of salvation,
He has wrapped me with a robe of righteousness,
As a bridegroom decks himself with a garland,
And ag as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11 For as the ah earth brings forth its sprouts,
And as a garden causes the things sown in it to spring up,
So the Lord ▼
▼ Heb YHWH, usually rendered LordGod will aj cause ak righteousness and praise
To spring up before all the nations.
