(passages in the New Testament that refer back to this chapter)
1The Spirit of the Lord Yehovah is on me; because Yehovah has anointed me to preach good news to the humble. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to those who are bound;
2to proclaim the year of Yehovah’s favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn;
3to appoint to those who mourn in Zion, to give to them a garland for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of Yehovah, that he may be glorified.
4They shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.
5Strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and foreigners shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.
6But you shall be named the priests of Yehovah; men will call you the ministers of our God: you will eat the wealth of the nations, and you will boast in their glory.
7Instead of your shame [you shall have] double; and instead of dishonor they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess double; everlasting joy shall be to them.
8“For I, Yehovah, love justice, I hate robbery with iniquity; and I will give them their recompense in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.
9Their seed shall be known among the nations, and their offspring among the peoples; all who see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which Yehovah has blessed.”
10I will greatly rejoice in Yehovah, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation, he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11For as the earth brings forth its bud, and as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord Yahweh will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.
Our Messiah has come and begun His great work, and He WILL return to complete it!
