Main point summary
The Spirit of God is within me, because he has appointed me to preach the gospel, so that his people might be cleansed from sin in order that they may be imputed with my righteousness, that they maybe spiritual mature, so that they may reflecting the glory of the Lord.
s The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
because the Lord has t anointed me to bring good news to the poor; 1
he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives,
and u the opening of the prison to those who are bound; 2
v to proclaim the year of the Lord ’s favor,
w and the day of vengeance of our God;
to comfort all who mourn;
to grant to those who mourn in Zion—
x to give them a beautiful headdress
instead of ashes,
y the oil of gladness
instead of mourning,
the garment of praise
instead of a faint spirit;
z that they may be called oaks of righteousness,
the planting of the Lord ,
a that he may be glorified. 1
