Bible: Isaiah 61:1-2

The Lord Will Rejuvenate His People

61:1 The spirit of the sovereign Lord is upon me,

because the Lord has chosen 1  me. 2 

He has commissioned 3  me to encourage 4  the poor,

to help 5  the brokenhearted,

to decree the release of captives,

and the freeing of prisoners,

61:2 to announce the year when the Lord will show his favor,

the day when our God will seek vengeance, 6 

to console all who mourn,
