To announce a year of favor from the Lord
    and a day of vindication by our God;
To comfort all who mourn;(A)
    to place on those who mourn in Zion

To give them oil of gladness instead of mourning,
    a glorious mantle instead of a faint spirit.

They will be called oaks of justice,
    the planting of the Lord to show his glory.
