Covenant Combat

God intends for a husband to lead his wife. He cannot lead her effectively without submitting Himself to the authority the Headship of Christ Jesus! Men of God, cover your wives! Pray for them and protect them in all mannersโ€”physically and spiritually! God intends for a husband to consider his wife in the decisions and choices he makes in life. She is the weaker vessel according to 1 Peter 3:7 and is called to โ€œadapt herselfโ€ to you (v.6) and has more than likely left her kin and country to make a new life with you; so give honor to your wife and marriage.

Stop fighting each other and fight the enemy! Lead the prayers and be the leaderโ€”be the aggressors in spiritual warfare. Follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.

A strong marriage is one with Jesus at its center with husbands and wives ready to lift each other should one fall or stumble. They are submitted to each other out of reverence to Jesus.

1 Peter 3:6-9 โ€œjust as Sarah obeyed Abraham [following him and having regard for him as head of their house], calling him lord. And you have become her daughters if you do what is right without being frightened by any fear [that is, being respectful toward your husband but not giving in to intimidation, nor allowing yourself to be led into sin, nor to be harmed]. In the same way, you husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way [with great gentleness and tact, and with an intelligent regard for the marriage relationship], as with someone physically weaker, since she is a woman. Show her honor and respect as a fellow heir of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered or ineffective.

Finally, all of you be like-minded [united in spirit], sympathetic, brotherly, kindhearted [courteous and compassionate toward each other as members of one household], and humble in spirit; and never return evil for evil or insult for insult [avoid scolding, berating, and any kind of abuse], but on the contrary, give a blessing [pray for one anotherโ€™s well-being, contentment, and protection]; for you have been called for this very purpose, that you might inherit a blessing [from God that brings well-being, happiness, and protection].โ€

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 โ€œTwo are better than one because they have a more satisfying return for their labor; for if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and does not have another to lift him up. Again, if two lie down together, then they keep warm; but how can one be warm alone? And though one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.โ€

Measured By Our Love

Measured By Our Love

This word from the Lord builds upon an already released word that was not a part of this study prior to this. I pray it brings God glory.

The following may be familiar, but we will build on this word inspired by God’s Word in 2 Kings chapter 6.

2 Kings 6 (GODโ€™S WORD version) :

โ€œThe disciples of the prophets said to Elisha, โ€œThe place where weโ€™re staying is too small for us. 2 Letโ€™s go to the Jordan River. Each of us can get some logs and make a place for us to live there.โ€ Elisha said, โ€œGo ahead.โ€ 3 Then one of the disciples asked, โ€œWonโ€™t you please come with us?โ€ Elisha answered, โ€œIโ€™ll go.โ€ 4 So he went with them. They came to the Jordan River and began to cut down trees. 5 As one of them was cutting down a tree, the ax head fell into the water. He cried out, โ€œOh no, master! It was borrowed!โ€ 6 The man of God asked, โ€œWhere did it fall?โ€ When he showed Elisha the place, Elisha cut off a piece of wood. He threw it into the water at that place and made the ax head float. 7 Elisha said, โ€œPick it up.โ€ The disciple reached for it and picked it up. โ€œ

Somebody out there reading this right now is crying out in their heart and soul ๐Ÿ—ฃOh God this place Iโ€™m in in my marriage, I CANโ€™T STAY HERE I CANโ€™T LIVE HERE ANYMORE!โ€ Youโ€™re looking around at the hurt and suffering youโ€™ve endured and the walls of the valley seem to be closing in on you as the difficulties seem to be growing larger and crowding you out. I know youโ€™re looking and searching for more room to get away from the pain closing in. I will walk with you in your journey to the River Jordan. Youโ€™re ready to cross over from this place of suffering to your promised land where your marriage is restored. Iโ€™ll walk with you. You have work to do to get ready to cross over to reach your promised land. Some of you have already been working. Youโ€™ve believed God for more and have been laboring, chopping away โ€”praying, fasting, declaring Godโ€™s Word. Youโ€™ve been working hard ๐Ÿ˜“ striving and looking at your efforts and performance and you have managed to lose your EDGE YOUR CUTTING EDGE YOUR FAITH!!!! Your ax head FAITH HAS SLIPPED OFF! You are not certain how you lost your faith with all the sweat and tears you have been putting into relocating your marriage closer to the promised land! (LOOK AT JESUS.)

Tell Him that youโ€™ve lost your faith. He knows itโ€™s borrowed because it is not of our own striving that we have faith but by Godโ€™s grace (Ephesians 2:8-9). I am here with you by the grace of God in your blessed marriage journey through this ministry, and I am asking you,

“Where did you lose your faith? Where did it fall?”

I want you to go to the Lord in prayer after reading this post and tell Him where you began to doubt and where you lost your cutting edge FAITH. The Lord is going to give me a piece of wood โ€”a word to follow this that is going to confirm to you something He wants you to see. The Lord Jesus is going to cause YOUR FAITH THAT YOU LOST to float ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

YOU ARE TO PICK UP YOUR FAITH.

Pick it up and this time, do this thing this work for your marriage the way the LORD tells you to do it…..by faith โ™ฅ๏ธ

Let’s pick up where you picked up your faith my sister my brother in Christ. You realize that you had been wearing yourself out and whittling your strength away as you battled and swung in your flesh until you lost your ax-head of faith. Now that you have recovered your faith in the stand for your marriage with God’s help, you are now ready to rebuild.

You may be looking around and asking

yourself, โ€œRebuild what? And how when I am the only one standing here in

this vast wilderness?โ€ Look around and now look to the hills from where

your Help comes because the rebuilding begins with you.

โ€œ I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.โ€ (Psalm 121:1 KJV)

Rebuilding begins with you.

God has commissioned you to rebuild by your allowing Him to rebuild you. When God commissions mankind to build, He knows the exact dimensions for what He has commanded to be built. He never makes an error or miscalculation.

Havenโ€™t you spent enough time measuring out

the dimensions of your suffering?

Havenโ€™t you thoroughly and carefully

measured out the pain youโ€™ve endured and the resources you have at your

disposal?

Itโ€™s time now to listen for Godโ€™s command.

โ€œLord, what are the dimensions that will bring You glory? What do I need to do?โ€

Rebuilding your marriageโ€”making it brand new and better than before requires you to draw near to the Lord.

โ€œDuring the 25th year of our exile (which was

the 14th year after Nebuchadnezzar conquered Jerusalem), at the

beginning of the year on the 10th day of the month, the Eternal took

hold of me and brought me to the ruined city. 2 In the visions God

showed me, He carried me into the land of Israel and put me on top of a

very high mountain. Southward, there was a building that looked like a

city unto itself. 3 God led me to that place, and there I saw a man

whose appearance gleamed as if he were made of bronze. He stood at the

structureโ€™s gate with a linen tape for long measurements and a reed for

short measurements.

The Man (to Ezekiel): 4 Son of man, sharpen

your senses! See with your eyes, and listen with your ears! Take notice

of everything I am about to show you, because you are here to see what I

do and to relay it all to the people of Israel.โ€ (Ezekiel 40:1-4, AMP.)

God knows the exact dimensions of your

marriage, your heart and your spouseโ€™s heart. He knows the exact

dimensions that are needed to rebuild and He has a new design in mind and at work for your marriage.

Begin to dream again and envision the grandeur of your marriage once it is restored. Know that God knows what it takes to rebuild so that your marriage is built with Jesus at its center.

In Ezekielโ€™s vision, God shows Him the new city of Jerusalem and its new temple. Something that fascinates me is that God reveals His Holy order as He shares detailed measurements of the temple’s layout. Within the inner court of the temple, the first area shown during the tour is the sacrifice chamber where the burnt offerings were washed and slaughtered.

In particular, what stood out the most was the description in Ezekiel 40:43: โ€œInside were hooks, a handbreadth wide, fastened all around; and the flesh of the sacrifices was on the tables.โ€

This brings to mind our beloved Lord and Savior Jesusโ€™ sacrifice. He was hung on the cross and He died hanging there for our sins.

His death on the cross eliminated the need for the continual burnt temple

offerings for Godโ€™s forgiveness. Iโ€™m discerning and imagining with my

spiritual eyes that the handbreadth distance between the hooks may have been the exact breadth and size of Jesusโ€™ hand–only His hands were pierced by nails instead of hooks.

Next, Ezekiel is shown the chamber for the singers and priests: โ€œ From the outside to the inner gate were chambers

for the singers in the inner courtyard, one of which was beside the

north gate, with its front toward the south, and one beside the

south gate facing toward the north. 45 He [who was guiding me] said

to me, โ€œThis is the chamber which faces toward the south; it is for the

priests who have the responsibility and take care of the temple; 46 but

the chamber which faces toward the north is for the priests who have the

responsibility and take care of the altar. These are the sons of Zadok,

who [alone] from the sons of Levi come near to the Lord to minister to

Him.โ€ 47 He measured the courtyard, a hundred cubits long and a hundred

cubits wide, a perfect square; and the altar was in front of the

temple.โ€ (Ezekiel 40:44-47, AMP).

The Hebrew Word for altar is mizbeach and

means โ€œa place of slaughterโ€. When we shared our vows with our spouses

before Almighty God, many of us did so at the altar. It is fitting to

consider how we must sacrifice our flesh–specifically, how husbands must love their wives as Christ loved the church and died for her. Our marriages are altars before God wherein we hang up our fleshy ways on those “sacrifice hooks”!

Before Ezekiel was shown “the Most Holy Place” the Sanctuary, he had to

pass by the areas for the singers and priests, which strikes me as a

reminder that when we are in the fiery furnace of trials, we

need to praise God and worship Him nonetheless because He is Holy and an

abiding God. “But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.” (Psalm 22:3). You are the priest who is called to take care of your marriage temple and to go before God interceding for your spouse. You are called and chosen.

Here are some Scriptural dimensions provided by God to help us align our heart dimensions with His perfect will:

Romans 12:1-2~โ€œI appeal to you therefore,

brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living

sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of

your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what

is good and acceptable and perfect.โ€

1 Peter 2:4-6~ โ€œAs you come to him, a living

stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, 5 you

yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house,

to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God

through Jesus Christ. 6 For it stands in Scripture:

โ€œBehold, I am laying in Zion a stone,

a cornerstone chosen and precious, and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.โ€

Psalm 51:16-18~ โ€œFor you will not delight in

sacrifice, or I would give it; you will not be pleased with a burnt

offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and

contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.โ€

Hebrews 13:15~ โ€œThrough him then let us

continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of

lips that acknowledge his name.โ€

Ephesians 5:2~ โ€œAnd walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.โ€

Hebrews 10:11-14~ โ€œAnd every priest stands

daily at his service, offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can

never take away sins. But when Christ had offered for all time a single

sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, waiting from

that time until his enemies should be made a footstool for his feet. For

by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being

sanctified.โ€

Psalm 4:5 ~ โ€œFrom this day forward, offer to God the right sacrifice from a heart made right by God.

Entrust yourself to the Eternal.โ€

“But Samuel replied: โ€˜Does the Lord delight in

burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the Lord? To obey

is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams” (1

Samuel 15:22).

God wants to put your temple in order. He wants you to get rid of idols– anything/whatever you seek and love more than Him. Greatest Commandment–dimension ever commissioned of us is that God wants us to put Him first–loving the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, and mind. Secondly, God wants us to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. (Matthew 22:37-40) Verse 40 says “all the Law and the Prophets hang” on those two commandments. All of the saving, redemptive love that destroyed the curse of the law, which is death and simultaneously defeated the devil and all his powers of darkness, was Jesus!!!! Halleulujah!!!!!! Glory to God!!!!!!!!

Again, “Walk in love…” not harboring bitterness and anger because of the suffering you have endured. Those dimensions will not work with the blueprint God has for your restored marriage.

You picked up your faith. Don’t forget about love.

“But one day, when Jesus arrives, we will see clearly, face-to-face. In that day, I will fully know just as I have been wholly known by God. But now faith, hope, and love remain; these three virtues must characterize our lives. The greatest of these is love.” (1Cor. 13:12-13).

May God restore your marriage to become a marvel that brings Him glory as His temple–husband and wife as one-flesh living stones built upon the Chief Cornerstone Jesus Christ. I pray this study blesses you and refreshes you in your stand.

Good morning fellow Godโ€™s children ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿค— Catch this ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿฆ…

Isnโ€™t it worth noting how suddenly the seasons will change! We look at our calendars and mark by our timetable to declare that it is Summer, Spring, Winter, or Fall. We look at the weather outside and remark on how it doesnโ€™t line up with what we say the season is! For example, when it became Fall on our calendars, we noticed the sun still lingered as if it was still yet summertime. Then, we notice a change that happens seemingly overnightโ€”SUDDENLY! Right?! Amen! The weather outside begins to line up with the season that has been declared. Suddenly thereโ€™s frost on the windshields in the mornings instead of wet dew on the ground! You follow me? Look at the season you are in with regards to your marriage. What have you declared about your season? Are you determining your season by what it looks likeโ€”your marriage weatherโ€”what your eyes see in the natural about your circumstances and relationship with your spouse? You must begin to see with eyes of FAITH. Before the leave fall off the trees all of a sudden, there is an unseen process that has taken place. An unseen chemical change has occurred within the tree itself and itโ€™s leaves that cause them to change colors to indicate change is coming. Glory to God! Somebody get this!๐Ÿ”ฅ You may notice the changes but whether you do or not, it is happening and the lead will die and fall all of a sudden as it lines up with the declared season of Fall.

Marriage Without Jesus

A marriage without the Cross is a marriage at its crossroadsโ€”facing hopelessness without Jesusโ€”because God created marriage beginning with the imperfect man Adam and Eve just so that His Son Jesus who came as the only perfect Man could save us and show us how love is really done! A marriage without Jesus faces the crossroads where human frailty and sin meet the trials and temptations the enemy designed to take us out and destroy the marriage! We cannot face and win the battle at the crossroads without the POWER OF CHRIST! Every marriage needs Jesus because when we stand at the crossroads of trials and face darkness and hopelessness, we need Him to stand beside us to empower us and drive away the enemy! Every marriage needs Jesus especially at its crossroads so we can learn to NOT GIVE UP OR FIGHT IN OUR FLESH IN OUR OWN POWER!!! So we learn how to persevere and STAND AND WALK IN THE POWER AND ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT SO AT THE CROSSROADS…..we CROSS OVER!!! We overcome by the power of the Blood of Jesus and we possess victory in the land in our marriage because of His finished work!!! AMEN GLORY TO GOD!!!!!๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ

Let God Lead You Through Difficulties

I want to share my blessing to the glory of God because He is the one who made it happen! For almost 2 weeks, my client has been hospitalized. This meant no pay for me. The enemy had me wondering why would God let your job fall apart like this so you are back to one income just as when your husband was in boot camp? I had already decreed and God confirmed several times that my season of suffering had ended. It was so silent yโ€™all and I mean quiet. I didnโ€™t hear from God. I just continued to wonder in my mind and I felt frustration growing. A lady in a Facebook group messaged me to share a video with me and it was about how Jesus loved Barabbas enough to let him go free and take his sin when He willingly went to the cross to die for us all. I thought about how many times I sin and Jesus is there waiting for me to give it to Him and repent so I can be free out of His great love for me. Even now I just tear up because God made His love for me real present and felt when I watched that video and I thought about how Jesus couldโ€™ve left us all to die in sin and bondage. The awareness of Godโ€™s love led me to seek Him rather than withdraw during this difficult time of unknowns with my job. He helped me to realize that all of the things Iโ€™d prayed about concerning my job, Heโ€™d taken into consideration. He had me see a post that said Maybe everything is falling apart because God is putting something better together for you! I grabbed hold of that and said I trust You God! Itโ€™s uncomfortable having what you think is your provision and security taken away from you. I donโ€™t believe that God was happy my client became sick but I know He knew it would happen and already went before me to pave the way for me to get through this patch of income loss and job uncertainty. In the past few months Iโ€™d been praying God would lead me to a job where I can begin a career that I would absolutely love and make a difference in peopleโ€™s lives. I prayed to God about not having benefits and about positioning me where my integrity would be valued and rewarded. God really was listening to me….. Yesterday the other aide who works with my client called me and told me she took a turn for the better and is improving drastically. Prayer works!!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ This morning I saw an email from yesterday inviting me to call for an interview for a position that I was told last week was filled. I went to the interview and felt so joyful on the way thereโ€”so happy! I was asked to take the last assessment and so did that. During the interview she looked at my scores and remarked at how exceedingly well my score of 27 is and said that most candidates couldnโ€™t even reach a 20. Iโ€™m so grateful and in tears because God showed me just how much He listens and loves me. I was offered the position today and it offers paid nursing training in just a couple of months that will result in a wonderful pay raise!!! Iโ€™ll be able to continue to work with the elderly in a nursing home! I prayed during this past week and mentioned to God that I love working with elderlyโ€”this field of work!!! Glory to God! He made it happen!!! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ Iโ€™ll be eligible for benefits and vacation time and such! Iโ€™m just so thankful and thrilled that God did this for me and my family! I want to encourage you who may be going through difficulties whether job or marriage-related to not give up on God and on being a woman of God. Pass your test by holding on to Godโ€™s hand. God truly loves us and is with us. He does not leave us to die in calamity. Stay in Christ and do not be moved by circumstances because He is our Rock๐Ÿ› He commands the waves ๐ŸŒŠ of the storm to still and He can create a new thing for you just when you thought all was lost. The same way He has blessed me, He can bless you too ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ’

Bedroom Battlefield


I would be remiss to not say this with care and utmost respect. Our marriage beds can be the area of our marriages where oftentimes the war is conceded–on the losing end to the gain and spoil of the enemy rather than to the glory of God– as husbands and wives fight the wrong battles. Holy marriage ground is defiled when a spouse engages in adultery, sexual immorality, as well as, sexual rebellion or manipulation. There are husbands and wives who refuse to make love to their spouses because they do not feel like actively participating in helping them to create a fulfilling sex life. Many fall prey to their own feelings and believe and trust what they feel–feelings that they are either not desirable at all or less desirable than what society says is what makes a person desirable; Feelings of inadequacy that they cannot fulfill their spouse; misguided feelings that a passionate marriage bed involves degrading experience that is reflective of worldly love for pornography; feelings that they can control or get their way by being manipulative and withholding sex out of vengeance or anger. Don’t allow the enemy to gain a foothold in your marriage bed. Marriage is honorable and God intends for a couple to lovingly, unselfishly, passionately, honorably, devotedly, physically manifest His spoken Word that the husband and wife are indeed one-flesh. That brings glory to God! Sexual intimacy between a husband and wife is powerful spiritual work. Their flesh joins to communicate between their souls the unseen power and the Holy Spirit can help them to heal, mend some things that talking just can’t do! The Holy Spirit can move within them and through them to help them grow closer –more tightly-knit and God can rekindle the places that are neglected or broken down in their marriage bed. When there are intimacy problems, the enemy will bring temptation along. Instead of becoming a player, remain steadfast and faithful as a wife or husband of PRAYER. Prayer can move the dust off the marriage bed and shake the cobwebs from each corner. God can bring dead things back to LIFE! If you need God to do this for you, just invite Him to help you and HE WILL! Lord God ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ

Give husbands a desire that is for and only quenched by their own wives! Let them quench their sexual desires only in their wives’ cistern. Let each husband and wife feel the flames of passion burn brightly for their spouses and a willingness to bring you glory in their marriage beds. Keep temptations far from us and deliver spouses of anything or anyone that prevents them from having an honorable marriage bed that is glorious and fulfilling. Teach and show all spouses how to love one another with the enjoyment you intend for us. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

Hebrews 13:4, KJV~ “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.”

Beautiful Love

What a beautiful illustration of the Bridegroom with His bride! 

A husband is to love his wife as Jesus loves the church His bride. His love in demonstration involved sacrificing His very life as a Man. A husband must sacrifice his will and desires that conflict with God’s will. A husband who embraces and obeys God’s will sees his wife beyond her flaws. He sees her as being who God says she is by faith (Ephesians 5:25-30). By faith, he will speak God’s Word over her and cherish her as his blessed partner in life. He will submit his will out of reverence to Christ, longing to bring out of her the best. A husband who follows Jesus’ example is concerned with her edification instead of self-gratification. In a godly marriage, their love is a dance of delight and continual yearning for one another– a yearning to love, to learn, to sharpen, to grow, to bring God the glory. A wife is to trust that where her husband leads her in their dance of love, like Jesus she must trust that God is in control (Eph. 5:22-23). By surrendering her need for control over the outcome of her husband’s leadership, she can relax her grip, throw her head back and smile at the future because Jesus is King of kings (Proverbs 31:25). The dance of love in a godly marriage is a beautiful choreography that glorifies God–full of reliance on the Lord, honor, grace, joy, humility, believing the best in one another (1 Cor. 13:7), patience, compassion, gentleness, kindness, strength to endure trials together with prayer and so much more.

Beauty for Ashes

Have you ever watched a house burn down to the ground? When I was a young girl, I along with a crowd in my neighborhood watched as a house aflame blazed down to the ground. Firefighters rained water from a nearby hydrant to no avail. At first they worked tirelessly and then seemed to give up. They let it burn and stood watch to prevent it from spreading. We listened to the flames crackle. Hours later there remained the rubble of what was once a home and of course, ashes.

When a marriage is dying, it is like a burning relationship. The flaming darts of the enemy have hit their targets and a host of other factors contribute to the marriage going down in flames. But God! The ashes that remain—God can take those ashes and give beauty for ashes. God can give an unexpected good future and restore the joy that was stolen. Instead of your shroud of mourning, God is replacing it with a veil of joy that shall cover you with His favor. Your spouse shall see it upon you with the eyes of his heart and once again, you will know the beauty of love together again. The beauty of a marriage burned to the ground is that ONLY GOD CAN restore it. The immensity of that fact is only God is qualified to take what the enemy meant to destroy and kill a marriage and use it to resurrect that marriage so that it bring Him glory ๐Ÿ’

Isaiah 61 Jubilee version ~

61 ” The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me because the LORD has anointed me; he has sent me to preach good tidings unto those who are cast down; to bind up the wounds of the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those that are bound;

2 to proclaim the year of the LORDโ€™s favour, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;

3 to order in Zion those that mourn, 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 ยถ And they shall build the old wastes; they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall restore 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 with their glory ye shall be lifted up.

7 Instead of your double shame, and your dishonour, they shall praise you in your inheritance; therefore in your land ye shall possess double, and ye shall have everlasting joy.

8 For I the LORD love that which is right, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will confirm your 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 peoples; all that saw them shall acknowledge them that they are the seed which the LORD has blessed.

10 ยถ I will greatly rejoice in the LORD; my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he has clothed me with the garments of saving health; he has surrounded me with the robe of righteousness; as a bridegroom he has arrayed me, and as a bride made up of his jewels.

11 For as the earth brings forth her shoot and as the garden causes her seed to spring forth so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the Gentiles.” ”
