Isaiah 61:4-9 World English Bible (WEB)

They will rebuild the old ruins.
    They will raise up the places long devastated.
They will repair the ruined cities,
    that have been devastated for many generations.
Strangers will stand and feed your flocks,
    and foreigners will work your fields and your vineyards.
But you will be called Yahweh’s priests.
    Men will call you the servants of our God.
You will eat the wealth of the nations,
    and you will boast in their glory.
Instead of your shame you will have double.
    Instead of dishonor, they will rejoice in their portion.
Therefore in their land, they will possess double.
    Everlasting joy will be to them.
“For I, Yahweh, love justice.
    I hate robbery and iniquity.
I will give them their reward in truth,
    and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.
Their offspring[a] will be known among the nations,
    and their offspring among the peoples.
All who see them will acknowledge them,
    that they are the offspring[b] which Yahweh has blessed.”

Isaiah 61:4-9 New International Version (NIV)

They will rebuild the ancient ruins
    and restore the places long devastated;
they will renew the ruined cities
    that have been devastated for generations.
Strangers will shepherd your flocks;
    foreigners will work your fields and vineyards.
And you will be called priests of the Lord,
    you will be named ministers of our God.
You will feed on the wealth of nations,
    and in their riches you will boast.

Instead of your shame
    you will receive a double portion,
and instead of disgrace
    you will rejoice in your inheritance.
And so you will inherit a double portion in your land,
    and everlasting joy will be yours.

“For I, the Lord, love justice;
    I hate robbery and wrongdoing.
In my faithfulness I will reward my people
    and make an everlasting covenant with them.
Their descendants will be known among the nations
    and their offspring among the peoples.
All who see them will acknowledge
    that they are a people the Lord has blessed.”
