Isaiah 61:1-3 Modern English Version (MEV)

The Lord’s Favor

61 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me
    because the Lord has anointed me
    to preach good news to the poor;
He has sent me to heal the broken-hearted,
    to proclaim liberty to the captives,
    and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord
    and the day of vengeance of our God;
to comfort all who mourn,
    to preserve those who mourn in Zion,
to give to them beauty
    for ashes,
the oil of joy
    for mourning,
the garment of praise
    for the spirit of heaviness,
that they might be called trees of righteousness,
    the planting of the Lord,
    that He might be glorified.
