Isaiah 61 DBY

1 The Spirit of the Lord Jehovah is upon me, because Jehovah hath anointed me to announce glad tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and opening of the prison to them that are bound;
2 to proclaim the acceptable year of Jehovah, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
3 to appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, that beauty a should be given unto them instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of the spirit of heaviness: that they might be called terebinths of righteousness, the planting of Jehovah, that he may be glorified.
