Isaiah 61:1

The

Lord Yahweh’s Spirit is on me; because Yahweh has anointed me to preach good news to the humble.
Isaiah 61:1


Context

Isaiah 60 [20.] Your sun will not go down any more,
nor will your moon withdraw itself;
for Yahweh will be your everlasting light,
and the days of your mourning will end.
Then your people will all be righteous.
They will inherit the land forever,
the branch of my planting,
the work of my hands,
that I may be glorified.
The little one will become a thousand,
and the small one a strong nation.
I, Yahweh, will do this quickly in its time.”

Isaiah 61 [1.] The Lord Yahweh’s Spirit is on me;
because Yahweh has anointed me to preach good news to the humble.

He has sent me to bind up the broken hearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives,
and release to those who are bound;
to proclaim the year of Yahweh’s favor,
and the day of vengeance of our God;
to comfort all who mourn;
to provide for 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 Yahweh,
that he may be glorified.
