The blessed ones of Yahweh (Isa 61:8-61:9)

“I,

Yahweh,

Love justice.

I hate robbery.

I hate wrongdoing.

I will faithfully give them

Their recompense.

I will make an everlasting covenant

With them.

Their descendants

Shall be known among the nations.

Their offspring

Shall be among the people.

All who see them

Shall acknowledge

That they are a people

Whom Yahweh has blessed.”

Yahweh, speaking in the first person singular, says that he loves justice. He hates robbery and all wrongdoing. He will keep his everlasting covenant with his people. He will faithfully compensate them. They will have well known descendants among the various nations and people. Everybody who sees them will realize that they are a people that Yahweh has blessed.
