The spirit of the Lord God is upon me,They will be called oaks of righteousness,
because the Lord has anointed me;
he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed,
to bind up the broken-hearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives,
and release to the prisoners;
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour,
and the day of vengeance of our God;
to comfort all who mourn;
to provide for those who mourn in Zion—
to give them a garland instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness instead of mourning,
the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit.
the planting of the Lord, to display his glory.
They shall build up the ancient ruins,
they shall raise up the former devastations;they shall repair the ruined cities,
the devastations of many generations.
