“For (A)I, the Lord, love justice;
(B)I hate robbery [a]for burnt offering;
I will direct their work in truth,
(C)And will make with them an everlasting covenant.
Their descendants shall be known among the Gentiles,
And their offspring among the people.
All who see them shall acknowledge them,
(D)That they are the posterity whom the Lord has blessed.”

10 (E)I will greatly rejoice in the Lord,
My soul shall be joyful in my God;
For (F)He has clothed me with the garments of salvation,
He has covered me with the robe of righteousness,
(G)As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments,
And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11 For as the earth brings forth its bud,
As the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth,
So the Lord God will cause (H)righteousness and (I)praise to spring forth before all the nations.

  1. Isaiah 61:8 Or in

(A)The Gentiles shall see your righteousness,
And all (B)kings your glory.
(C)You shall be called by a new name,
Which the mouth of the Lord will name.
You shall also be (D)a crown of glory
In the hand of the Lord,
And a royal diadem
In the hand of your God.
(E)You shall no longer be termed (F)Forsaken,[a]
Nor shall your land any more be termed (G)Desolate;[b]
But you shall be called [c]Hephzibah, and your land [d]Beulah;
For the Lord delights in you,
And your land shall be married.
