1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; 3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified. 4 And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations. 5 And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers. 6 But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves. 7 For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them. 8 For I the LORD love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them. 9 And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the LORD hath blessed. 10 I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels. 11 For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.

1 Cary W = "When we believe in Christ as Savior and Lord, we recieve His very same Spirit.  And that same Spirit has but one mission and heart: to preach the good news of salvation, liberty and freedom from the bonds of captivity to the flesh.  To comfort, to heal, to remove all heaviness and restore our identity in God, that we are indeed His children, His planting, that He may again be glorified by His people."
2 Sara Di Diego = "This is quoted by Jesus in Luke 4:18-21 to show that he was the Messiah, and thus his credentials to teach to the Word to people.Work Cited:http://www.biblestudytools.com/commentaries/jamieson-fausset-brown/isaiah/isaiah-61.html"
3 Sara Di Diego = "Otherwise known as the Jubilee, a year when anyone captive was set free, all debts were forgotten, and the glories of Lord were shown. The Jubilee year occurred every 15 years.  And all this can be found in Leviticus 25."

7 Cary W = "In Christ Jesus are we all grafted into His seed and thus become again the blessed fruitful planting of the Lord.  Yet even more, we called to be intimate with God, just as a bride is fully devoted and adorned for her husband.  His garments of salvation prepare us to be so wondrously joined to the Lord."
