(A)Then shall your light break forth like the dawn,
    (B)and your healing shall spring up speedily;
(C)your righteousness shall go before you;
    (D)the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer;
    you shall cry, and he will say, ‘Here I am.’
If you take away (E)the yoke from your midst,
    (F)the pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness,
10 (G)if you pour yourself out for the hungry
    and satisfy the desire of the afflicted,
(H)then shall your light rise in the darkness
    and your gloom be as the noonday.

    and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.(D)
Then you will call,(E) and the Lord will answer;(F)
    you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.

“If you do away with the yoke of oppression,
    with the pointing finger(G) and malicious talk,(H)
10 and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
    and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,(I)
then your light(J) will rise in the darkness,
    and your night will become like the noonday.(K)
