Isaiah 61:1-3 English Standard Version

Good Tidings of Salvation to Zion

61 1  The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor;[1] he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;[2] 2  to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn; 3  to grant to those who mourn in Zion-- to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.[3]
