Lexham English Bible
4 Look! You fast to quarrel and strife,
and to strike with a wicked fist.[a]
You shall not fast as you do today,[b]
to make your voice heard[c] on the height.
5 Is the fast I choose like this,
a day for humankind to humiliate himself[d]?
To bow his head like a reed,
and make[e] his bed on sackcloth and ashes;
you call this a fast
and a day of pleasure to Yahweh?
6 Is this not the fast I choose: to release the bonds of injustice,
to untie the ropes of the yoke,
and to let the oppressed go free,
and tear[f] every yoke to pieces?
