The Year of Yahweh’s Favor

1 [The] Spirit of the Lord Yahweh [is] upon me, because Yahweh has anointed me, he has sent me to bring good news [to the] oppressed, to bind up {the brokenhearted},a to {proclaim}b release to [the] captives and liberation to those who are bound, 2 to {proclaim}c [the] year of Yahweh's favor, and our God's day of vengeance, to comfort all those in mourning, 3 to {give}d for those in mourning in Zion, to give them a head wrap instead of ashes, [the] oil of joy instead of mourning, a garment of praise instead of a faint spirit. And {they will be called}e oaks of righteousness, the planting of Yahweh, to show his glory. 4 And they shall build [the] ancient ruins, they shall erect [the] former deserted [places]. And they shall restore [the] {devastated cities},f [the] deserted [places] of {many generations}.g 5 And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks,h and {foreigners}i [shall be] your farmers and vinedressers. 6 Butj you shall be called the priests of Yahweh, {you will be called}k servers of our God. You shall eat [the] wealth of [the] nations, and you shall boast in their riches.
