1 The a of the Lord b is upon me; because the Lord hath c me to d e unto the f; he hath sent me to g up the brokenhearted, to h i to the j, and the opening of the k to them that are bound;
2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of a of our God; to b all that c;
3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them a for ashes, the oil of b for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called c of d, the e of the Lord, that he might be glorified.
4 ¶And they shall a the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.
5 And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.
6 But ye shall be named the a of the Lord: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the b of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.
7 ¶For your shame ye shall have a; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess b: everlasting joy shall be unto them.
8 For I the Lord love a, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting b with them.
9 And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the a which the Lord hath blessed.
10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath a me with the b of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
11 For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord God will cause righteousness and a to spring forth before all the nations.
