Isaiah 58

Previous chapter Index Next chapter
1 Call out loud, do not hold on; raise up your voice, like a trumpet, and point out to My people their iniquities, and to Jacob's house his sins.
2 Every day they seek Me and want to know My ways, as if a people who are doing righteously and do not abandon the laws of their God; they ask Me about the judgments of truth, they desire to draw near to God:

3 `Why do we fast, but You do not see? humble your souls, but you do not know? ' --Here, on the day of your fasting, you do your will and require hard work from others.
4 Behold, you fast for quarrels and quarrels, and in order to beat others with a bold hand; you do not fast at this time so that your voice is heard at a height.
5 Is this the fast that I have chosen, the day on which a man languishes his soul when his head bends like reed and lays rags and ashes under him? Would you call it fasting and a day pleasing to the Lord?
6 This is the post that I have chosen: let the chains of iniquity untie, loosen the bonds of yoke, and release the oppressed, and dissolve all yokes;
7 stripped your bread with the hungry, and bring the wandering poor into the house; when you see a naked man, dress him, and do not hide from your half-hearted one.

eight Then your light will be revealed, like a dawn, and your healing will soon increase, and your truth will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will accompany you.
nine Then you will call, and the Lord will hear; you will cry, and He will say: 'here I am!' When you remove the yoke from your midst, stop raising your finger and say insulting words,
ten and you will give your hungry soul and drink the soul of the sufferer: then your light will rise in the darkness, and your darkness [will be] like noon;
eleven and the Lord will be your leader forever, and during a drought he will saturate your soul and heal your bones, and you will be like a garden watered with water and as a spring that waters never run dry.
12 And centuries-old deserts [your descendants] will build up: you will restore the foundations of many generations, and they will call you a restorer of ruins, a renewer of ways for the population.

13 If you keep your foot for the sake of the Sabbath from fulfilling your whims on My holy day, and you call the Sabbath a joy, the holy day of the Lord, honored, and honor it by not doing your usual business, pleasing your whim and idle talk, -
fourteen you will have joy in the Lord, and I will lead you to the heights of the earth and let you taste the inheritance of Jacob your father: the mouth of the Lord uttered it.
