and provide for those who grieve in Zion-- to bestow on them a crown5 of beauty instead of ashes,6 the oil7 of gladness instead of mourning,8 and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting9 of the LORD for the display of his splendor.10
Instead of their shame15 my people will receive a double16 portion, and instead of disgrace they will rejoice in their inheritance; and so they will inherit17 a double portion in their land, and everlasting joy18 will be theirs.
I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices23 in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness,24 as a bridegroom adorns his head25 like a priest, and as a bride26 adorns herself with her jewels.
