ISAIAH 61:1-6

Open to me the gates of righteousness:

I will enter into them, I will give thanks unto the Lord.

This is the gate of the LORD;
The righteous shall enter into it.

I will give thanks unto thee, for thou hast answered me,

And art become my salvation.

The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner.

This is the Lord's doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.

This is the day which the LORD hath made;

We will rejoice and be glad in it.

Save now, we beseech thee, O LORD:

O Lord, we beseech thee, send now prosperity.

Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD:

We have blessed you out of the house of the Lord.

The Lord is God, and he hath given us light:

Bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.

Thou art my God and I will give thanks unto thee:

Thou art my God, I will exalt thee.

O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good:

For his mercy endureth for ever.

The spirit of the LORD is upon me;

Because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek;

He hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,

To proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD,

And the day of vengeance of our God:

To comfort all that mourn;

To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto 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 the Lord, that he might be glorified.

And they shall build the old wastes,

They shall raise up the former desolations,

And they shall repair the waste cities,

The desolations of many generations,
