Bible: Isaiah 61:4-7

61:4 They will rebuild the perpetual ruins

and restore the places that were desolate; 1 

they will reestablish the ruined cities,

the places that have been desolate since ancient times.

61:5 2 Foreigners will take care of 3  your sheep;

foreigners will work in your fields and vineyards.

61:6 You will be called, ‘the Lord’s priests,

servants of our God.’ 4 

You will enjoy 5  the wealth of nations

and boast about 6  the riches you receive from them. 7 

61:7 Instead of shame, you will get a double portion; 8 

instead of humiliation, they will rejoice over the land they receive. 9 

Yes, 10  they will possess a double portion in their land

and experience lasting joy.
