Isaiah 58
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1Call with your throat and have no pity, and lift up your voice like a trumpet, and show my people their evil, and the house of Yaqob their sins

2And they seek for me every day, and they seek to know my ways, like a people that did righteousness and did not forsake the judgment of its God. They ask me for judgment and righteousness and they seek to be brought near to God

3“Why have we fasted and you have not seen and we have humbled our soul and you have not known?” Behold, in the day of your fast you do your pleasure and you approach all your idols

4Behold, for strife and for contention you are fasting and to strike in the force of evil. You shall not fast like today and make your voice heard in high places

5This is the fast that I have chosen: that a man will humble himself and he will bend his neck like a bow, and he lays down sackcloth and ashes for himself. You shall call a fast for this and the day of the pleasure of LORD JEHOVAH

6This is the fasting that I have chosen: you will release the bonds of evil and you shall cut off the burdens of deceit, and you shall release the oppressed to liberty, and you shall cut off all burdens

7And you shall break your bread with the hungry, and the stranger you will bring to your house. When you shall see one naked, you also shall cover him, and you shall not turn away from a son of your body

8Then your light shall be opened like the dawn, and your righteousness shall rise quickly and your righteousness shall go before you and the glory of LORD JEHOVAH shall gather you

9Then you shall call and LORD JEHOVAH shall answer you, and you shall bellow and he shall say: “Here I am.” If you remove deceit from within you and you will free the oppressed and you will put him who speaks lies far away

10And you will give your bread to the hungry and you will fill the soul that is hungry, your light shall shine in darkness, and your darkness like the noon

11And LORD JEHOVAH shall lead you constantly and your soul will be satisfied with fatness and he shall strengthen your bones, and you shall be as Paradise that rejoices, and like a fountain of waters whose waters do not fail

12And some of you shall build desolations that were from old time, and you shall erect the foundation of the generations, and they shall call you “Repairer of the gaps” and “Restorer of the streets for the inhabitant”

13If you will turn your foot from the Sabbath, that you will not do your pleasure in the day of my holiness, and you will call the Sabbath a delight, and the holiness of LORD JEHOVAH honorable, and you will honor it, that you will not do your way in it, and you will not do your pleasure in it, and you will not speak a word

14Then you shall trust on LORD JEHOVAH, for I shall set you up on the strength of the Earth, and I shall feed you the inheritance of Yaqob your father, because the mouth of LORD JEHOVAH has spoken
