Isaiah 61 (WEBP)

[1] 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,°
[2] to proclaim the year of Yahweh’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn,
[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 former devastated places. They will repair the ruined cities that have been devastated for many generations.
[5] Strangers will stand and feed your flocks. Foreigners will work your 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. You will boast in their glory.
[7] Instead of your shame you will have double. Instead of dishonor, they will rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they will possess double. Everlasting joy will be to them.
[8] “For I, Yahweh, love justice. I hate robbery and iniquity. I will give them their reward in truth and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.
[9] Their offspring will be known among the nations, and their offspring among the peoples. All who see them will acknowledge them, that they are the offspring which Yahweh has blessed.”
[10] I will greatly rejoice in Yahweh! My soul will be joyful in my God, for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation. He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
[11] For as the earth produces its bud, and as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring up, so the Lord Yahweh will cause righteousness and praise to spring up before all the nations.

Isaiah 61 (KJVS)

[1] The Spirit H7307 of the Lord H136 GOD H3069 [is] upon me; because the LORD H3068 hath anointed H4886 (8804) me to preach good tidings H1319 (8763) unto the meek H6035; he hath sent H7971 (8804) me to bind up H2280 (8800) the brokenhearted H7665 (8737) H3820, to proclaim H7121 (8800) liberty H1865 to the captives H7617 (8803), and the opening of the prison H6495 to [them that are] bound H631 (8803);
[2] To proclaim H7121 (8800) the acceptable H7522 year H8141 of the LORD H3068, and the day H3117 of vengeance H5359 of our God H430; to comfort H5162 (8763) all that mourn H57;
[3] To appoint H7760 (8800) unto them that mourn H57 in Zion H6726, to give H5414 (8800) unto them beauty H6287 for ashes H665, the oil H8081 of joy H8342 for mourning H60, the garment H4594 of praise H8416 for the spirit H7307 of heaviness H3544; that they might be called H7121 (8795) trees H352 of righteousness H6664, the planting H4302 of the LORD H3068, that he might be glorified H6286 (8692).
[4] And they shall build H1129 (8804) the old H5769 wastes H2723, they shall raise up H6965 (8787) the former H7223 desolations H8074 (8802), and they shall repair H2318 (8765) the waste H2721 cities H5892, the desolations H8074 (8802) of many H1755 generations H1755.
[5] And strangers H2114 (8801) shall stand H5975 (8804) and feed H7462 (8804) your flocks H6629, and the sons H1121 of the alien H5236 [shall be] your plowmen H406 and your vinedressers H3755.
[6] But ye shall be named H7121 (8735) the Priests H3548 of the LORD H3068: [men] shall call H559 (8735) you the Ministers H8334 (8764) of our God H430: ye shall eat H398 (8799) the riches H2428 of the Gentiles H1471, and in their glory H3519 shall ye boast H3235 (8691) yourselves.
[7] For your shame H1322 [ye shall have] double H4932; and [for] confusion H3639 they shall rejoice H7442 (8799) in their portion H2506: therefore in their land H776 they shall possess H3423 (8799) the double H4932: everlasting H5769 joy H8057 shall be unto them.
[8] For I the LORD H3068 love H157 (8802) judgment H4941, I hate H8130 (8802) robbery H1498 for burnt offering H5930; and I will direct H5414 (8804) their work H6468 in truth H571, and I will make H3772 (8799) an everlasting H5769 covenant H1285 with them.
[9] And their seed H2233 shall be known H3045 (8738) among the Gentiles H1471, and their offspring H6631 among H8432 the people H5971: all that see H7200 (8802) them shall acknowledge H5234 (8686) them, that they [are] the seed H2233 [which] the LORD H3068 hath blessed H1288 (8765).
[10] I will greatly H7797 (8800) rejoice H7797 (8799) in the LORD H3068, my soul H5315 shall be joyful H1523 (8799) in my God H430; for he hath clothed H3847 (8689) me with the garments H899 of salvation H3468, he hath covered H3271 (8804) me with the robe H4598 of righteousness H6666, as a bridegroom H2860 decketh H3547 (8762) [himself] with ornaments H6287, and as a bride H3618 adorneth H5710 (8799) [herself] with her jewels H3627.
[11] For as the earth H776 bringeth forth H3318 (8686) her bud H6780, and as the garden H1593 causeth the things that are sown H2221 in it to spring forth H6779 (8686); so the Lord H136 GOD H3069 will cause righteousness H6666 and praise H8416 to spring forth H6779 (8686) before all the nations H1471.

Young’s Literal Translation

Isaiah 61 (YLT)

[1] The Spirit of the Lord Jehovah is on me, Because Jehovah did anoint me To proclaim tidings to the humble, He sent me to bind the broken of heart, To proclaim to captives liberty, And to bound ones an opening of bands.
[2] To proclaim the year of the good pleasure of Jehovah, And the day of vengeance of our God, To comfort all mourners.
[3] To appoint to mourners in Zion, To give to them beauty instead of ashes, The oil of joy instead of mourning, A covering of praise for a spirit of weakness, And He is calling to them, ‘Trees of righteousness, The planting of Jehovah-to be beautified.’
[4] And they have built the wastes of old, The desolations of the ancients they raise up, And they have renewed waste cities, The desolations of generation and generation.
[5] And strangers have stood and fed your flock, Sons of a foreigner are your husbandmen, And your vine-dressers.
[6] And ye are called ‘Priests of Jehovah,’ ‘Ministers of our God,’ is said of you, The strength of nations ye consume, And in their honour ye do boast yourselves.
[7] Instead of your shame and confusion, A second time they sing of their portion, Therefore in their land A second time do they take possession, Joy age-during is for them.
[8] For I am Jehovah, loving judgment, Hating plunder for a burnt-offering, And I have given their wage in truth, And a covenant age-during I make for them.
[9] And known among nations hath been their seed, And their offspring in the midst of the peoples, All their beholders acknowledge them, For they are a seed Jehovah hath blessed.
[10] I greatly rejoice in Jehovah, Joy doth my soul in my God, For He clothed me with garments of salvation, With a robe of righteousness covereth Me, As a bridegroom prepareth ornaments, And as a bride putteth on her jewels.
[11] For, as the earth bringeth forth her shoots, And as a garden causeth its sown things to shoot up, So the Lord Jehovah causeth righteousness and praise To shoot up before all the nations!
