Isaiah 58 (WEBP)

[1] “Cry aloud! Don’t spare! Lift up your voice like a trumpet! Declare to my people their disobedience, and to the house of Jacob their sins.
[2] Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways. As a nation that did righteousness, and didn’t forsake the ordinance of their God, they ask of me righteous judgments. They delight to draw near to God.
[3] ‘Why have we fasted,’ they say, ‘and you don’t see? Why have we afflicted our soul, and you don’t notice?’ “Behold, in the day of your fast you find pleasure, and oppress all your laborers.
[4] Behold, you fast for strife and contention, and to strike with the fist of wickedness. You don’t fast today so as to make your voice to be heard on high.
[5] Is this the fast that I have chosen? A day for a man to humble his soul? Is it to bow down his head like a reed, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under himself? Will you call this a fast, and an acceptable day to Yahweh?
[6] “Isn’t this the fast that I have chosen: to release the bonds of wickedness, to undo the straps of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke?
[7] Isn’t it to distribute your bread to the hungry, and that you bring the poor who are cast out to your house? When you see the naked, that you cover him; and that you not hide yourself from your own flesh?
[8] Then your light will break out as the morning, and your healing will appear quickly; then your righteousness shall go before you, and Yahweh’s glory will be your rear guard.
[9] Then you will call, and Yahweh will answer. You will cry for help, and he will say, ‘Here I am.’ “If you take away from among you the yoke, finger pointing, and speaking wickedly;
[10] and if you pour out your soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul, then your light will rise in darkness, and your obscurity will be as the noonday;
[11] and Yahweh will guide you continually, satisfy your soul in dry places, and make your bones strong. You will be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water whose waters don’t fail.
[12] Those who will be of you will build the old waste places. You will raise up the foundations of many generations. You will be called Repairer of the Breach, Restorer of Paths with Dwellings.
[13] “If you turn away your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on my holy day, and call the Sabbath a delight, and the holy of Yahweh honorable, and honor it, not doing your own ways, nor finding your own pleasure, nor speaking your own words,
[14] then you will delight yourself in Yahweh, and I will make you to ride on the high places of the earth, and I will feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father;” for Yahweh’s mouth has spoken it.

Isaiah 58 (KJVS)

[1] Cry () aloud , spare () not, lift () up thy voice like a trumpet , and shew () my people their transgression , and the house of Jacob their sins .
[2] Yet they seek () me daily , and delight () to know my ways , as a nation that did () righteousness , and forsook () not the ordinance of their God : they ask () of me the ordinances of justice ; they take delight () in approaching to God .
[3] Wherefore have we fasted (), [say they], and thou seest () not? [wherefore] have we afflicted () our soul , and thou takest no knowledge ()? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find () pleasure , and exact () all your labours .
[4] Behold, ye fast () for strife and debate , and to smite () with the fist of wickedness : ye shall not fast () as [ye do this] day , to make your voice to be heard () on high .
[5] Is it such a fast that I have chosen ()? a day for a man to afflict () his soul ? [is it] to bow down () his head as a bulrush , and to spread () sackcloth and ashes [under him]? wilt thou call () this a fast , and an acceptable day to the LORD ?
[6] [Is] not this the fast that I have chosen ()? to loose () the bands of wickedness , to undo () the heavy burdens , and to let the oppressed () go () free , and that ye break () every yoke ?
[7] [Is it] not to deal () thy bread to the hungry , and that thou bring () the poor that are cast out to thy house ? when thou seest () the naked , that thou cover () him; and that thou hide () not thyself from thine own flesh ?
[8] Then shall thy light break forth () as the morning , and thine health shall spring forth () speedily : and thy righteousness shall go () before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward ().
[9] Then shalt thou call (), and the LORD shall answer (); thou shalt cry (), and he shall say (), Here I [am]. If thou take away () from the midst of thee the yoke , the putting forth () of the finger , and speaking () vanity ;
[10] And [if] thou draw out () thy soul to the hungry , and satisfy () the afflicted () soul ; then shall thy light rise () in obscurity , and thy darkness [be] as the noonday :

[14] Then shalt thou delight () thyself in the LORD ; and I will cause thee to ride () upon the high places of the earth , and feed () thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father : for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken () [it].

Young’s Literal Translation

Isaiah 58 (YLT)

[1] Call with the throat, restrain not, As a trumpet lift up thy voice, And declare to My people their transgression, And to the house of Jacob their sins;
[2] Seeing-Me day by day they seek, And the knowledge of My ways they desire, As a nation that righteousness hath done, And the judgment of its God hath not forsaken, They ask of me judgments of righteousness, The drawing near of God they desire:
[3] ‘Why have we fasted, and Thou hast not seen? We have afflicted our soul, and Thou knowest not.’ Lo, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, And all your labours ye exact.
[4] Lo, for strife and debate ye fast, And to smite with the fist of wickedness, Ye fast not as to-day, To sound in the high place your voice.
[5] Like this is the fast that I choose? The day of a man’s afflicting his soul? To bow as a reed his head, And sackcloth and ashes spread out? This dost thou call a fast, And a desirable day-to Jehovah?
[6] Is not this the fast that I chose- To loose the bands of wickedness, To shake off the burdens of the yoke, And to send out the oppressed free, And every yoke ye draw off?
[7] Is it not to deal to the hungry thy bread, And the mourning poor bring home, That thou seest the naked and cover him, And from thine own flesh hide not thyself?
[8] Then broken up as the dawn is thy light, And thy health in haste springeth up, Gone before thee hath thy righteousness, The honour of Jehovah doth gather thee.
[9] Then thou callest, and Jehovah answereth, Thou criest, and He saith, ‘Behold Me.’ If thou turn aside from thy midst the yoke, The sending forth of the finger, And the speaking of vanity,
[10] And dost bring out to the hungry thy soul, And the afflicted soul dost satisfy, Then risen in the darkness hath thy light, And thy thick darkness is as noon.
[11] And Jehovah doth lead thee continually, And hath satisfied in drought thy soul, And thy bones He armeth, And thou hast been as a watered garden, And as an outlet of waters, whose waters lie not.
[12] And they have built out of thee the wastes of old, The foundations of many generations thou raisest up, And one calleth thee, ‘Repairer of the breach, Restorer of paths to rest in.’
[13] If thou dost turn from the sabbath thy foot, Doing thine own pleasure on My holy day, And hast cried to the sabbath, ‘A delight,’ To the holy of Jehovah, ‘Honoured,’ And hast honoured it, without doing thine own ways, Without finding thine own pleasure, And speaking a word.
[14] Then dost thou delight thyself on Jehovah, And I have caused thee to ride on high places of earth, And have caused thee to eat the inheritance of Jacob thy father, For the mouth of Jehovah hath spoken!
