Contents: Isaiah 60:20-61:6


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.

21 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.

22 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

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;


3 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.


4 They will rebuild the old ruins.

They will raise up the places long devastated.

They will repair the ruined cities,

that have been devastated for many generations.

5 Strangers will stand and feed your flocks,

and foreigners will work you’re their fields and your vineyards.

6 But you will be called Yahweh’s priests.

Men will call you the servants of our God.

You will eat the wealth of the nations,

and you will boast in their glory.
