GOD’S WORD Translation
8 Then your light will break through like the dawn,
and you will heal quickly.
Your righteousness will go ahead of you,
and the glory of the Lord will guard you from behind.
9 Then you will call, and the Lord will answer.
You will cry for help, and he will say, “Here I am!”
Get rid of that yoke.
Don’t point your finger and say wicked things.
10 If you give some of your own food to feed those who are hungry
and to satisfy the needs of those who are humble,
then your light will rise in the dark,
and your darkness will become as bright as the noonday sun.
New International Version

and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.(D)
9 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)
- Isaiah 58:8 Or your righteous One
