Textus Receptus Bibles
Jay P. Green's Literal Translation 1993
|61:1||The Spirit of the Lord Jehovah is on Me, because Jehovah has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the meek. He has sent Me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to captives, and complete opening to the bound ones;|
|61:2||to proclaim the acceptable year of Jehovah, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn;|
|61:3||to appoint to those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of the spirit of infirmity, so that one calls them trees of righteousness, the planting of Jehovah, in order to beautify Himself.|
|61:4||And they shall build old ruins; they shall raise up former desolations; and they shall restore the waste cities, ruins of generations and generations.|
|61:5||And foreigners shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of strangers shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.|
|61:6||But you shall be called, Priests of Jehovah; it will be said of you, Ministers of our God. You shall eat the riches of the nations, and you shall revel in their glory.|
|61:7||Instead of your shame and disgrace, double. They rejoice in their portion; for they shall possess a second time in their land; everlasting joy shall be theirs.|
|61:8||For I, Jehovah, love judgment, hating plunder in burnt offering. And I will give their work in truth; and I will cut an everlasting covenant for them.|
|61:9||And their seed shall be known among the nations, and their offspring among the peoples; all who see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed that Jehovah has blessed.|
|61:10||I will greatly rejoice in Jehovah. My soul shall be joyful in my God. For He clothed me with garments of salvation; He put on me the robe of righteousness, even as a bridegroom puts on his ornament, and as the bride is adorned with her jewels.|
|61:11||For as the earth comes out with her buds, and as a garden causes that which is sown to grow, so the Lord Jehovah will make righteousness and praise to grow before all the nations.|
