He has sent me
    to announce the year of Yahweh’s good will
        and the day of our Elohim’s vengeance,
        to comfort all those who grieve.
He has sent me
    to provide for all those who grieve in Zion,
        to give them crowns instead of ashes,
            the oil of joy instead of tears of grief,
                and clothes of praise instead of a spirit of weakness.

They will be called Oaks of Righteousness,
    the Plantings of Yahweh,
        so that he might display his glory.

They will rebuild the ancient ruins.
    They will restore the places destroyed long ago.
    They will renew the ruined cities, the places destroyed generations ago.
