Oaks of Righteousness

June 6, 2013

The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me; he has sent me to bring good
news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the
prisoners; to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who
mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion — to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness
instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called oaks of righteousness,
the planting of the LORD, to display his glory (NRSV). — Isaiah 61:1–3
