The Book of the Prophet Isaiah

Chapter 58


Cry3 aloud, spare4 not, lift up54 thy voice like a trumpet, and shew54 my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.


Yet they seek4 me daily, 3117 and delight4 to know my ways, as a nation that did1 righteousness, and forsook1 not the ordinance of their God: they ask4 of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight4 in approaching to God.


Wherefore have we fasted,1 [say they], and thou seest1 not? [wherefore] have we afflicted14 our soul, and thou takest no knowledge?4 Behold, in the day of your fast ye find4 pleasure, and exact4 all your labours.


Behold, ye fast4 for strife and debate, and to smite53 with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast4 as [ye do this] day, to make your voice to be heard53 on high.


Is it such a fast that I have chosen?4 a day for a man to afflict15 his soul? [is it] to bow down2 his head as a bulrush, and to spread55 sackcloth and ashes [under him]? wilt thou call4 this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD?


[Is] not this the fast that I have chosen?4 to loose15 the bands of wickedness, to undo53 the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed7 go15 free, and that ye break17 every yoke?


[Is it] not to deal2 thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring55 the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest4 the naked, that thou cover14 him; and that thou hide101 not thyself from thine own flesh?


Then shall thy light break forth11 as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth4 speedily: and thy righteousness shall go1 before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.4


Then shalt thou call,4 and the LORD shall answer;4 thou shalt cry,17 and he shall say,4 Here I [am]. If thou take away55 from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth2 of the finger, and speaking15 vanity;


And [if] thou draw out55 thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy55 the afflicted12 soul; then shall thy light rise1 in obscurity, and thy darkness [be] as the noonday:


And the LORD shall guide1 thee continually, and satisfy52 thy soul in drought, and make fat55 thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail17 not.


And [they that shall be] of thee shall build1 the old waste places: thou shalt raise up34 the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called,27 The repairer6 of the breach, The restorer35 of paths to dwell in.2


If thou turn away55 thy foot from the sabbath, [from] doing2 thy pleasure on my holy day; and call1 the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable;30 and shalt honour14 him, not doing2 thine own ways, nor finding2 thine own pleasure, nor speaking15 [thine own] words:


Then shalt thou delight101 thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride52 upon the high places of the earth, and feed52 thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken14 [it].
