Isaiah 61:1-3World English Bible (WEB)

61 The Lord Yahweh’s Spirit is on me;
    because Yahweh has anointed me to preach good news to the humble.
He has sent me to bind up the broken hearted,
    to proclaim liberty to the captives,
    and release to those who are bound;
to proclaim the year of Yahweh’s favor,
    and the day of vengeance of our God;
    to comfort all who mourn;
to provide for those who mourn in Zion,
    to give to 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 Yahweh,
    that he may be glorified.

Isaiah 61:1-3Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

61 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed and qualified me to preach the Gospel of good tidings to the meek, the poor, and afflicted; He has sent me to bind up and heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the [physical and spiritual] captives and the opening of the prison and of the eyes to those who are bound,

To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord [the year of His favor] [a]and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn,

To grant [consolation and joy] to those who mourn in Zion—to give them an ornament (a garland or diadem) of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, the garment [expressive] of praise instead of a heavy, burdened, and failing spirit—that they may be called oaks of righteousness [lofty, strong, and magnificent, distinguished for uprightness, justice, and right standing with God], the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.
