“Thus says the LORD: If you remove from your midst oppression, false accusation and malicious speech;
If you bestow your bread on the hungry and satisfy the afflicted; Then light shall rise for you in the darkness, and the gloom shall become for you like midday.
Then the LORD will guide you always and give you plenty even on the parched land.
He will renew your strength, and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring whose water never fails.
The ancient ruins shall be rebuilt for your sake, and the foundations from ages past you shall raise up; “Repairer of the breach,” they shall call you, “Restorer of ruined homesteads.”
If you hold back your foot on the sabbath from following your own pursuits on my holy day;
If you call the sabbath a delight, and the LORD’S holy day honorable;
If you honor it by not following your ways, seeking your own interests, or speaking with malice–
Then you shall delight in the LORD, and I will make you ride on the heights of the earth;
I will nourish you with the heritage of Jacob, your father, for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.” – Isaiah 58:9b-14.
