The office of Christ: the mission of the Apostles; the happiness of their converts.
 The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the Lord hath anointed me: he hath sent me to preach to the meek, to heal the contrite of heart, and to preach a release to the captives, and deliverance to them that are shut up.
Spiritus Domini super me, eo quod unxerit Dominus me; ad annuntiandum mansuetis misit me, ut mederer contritis corde, et praedicarem captivis indulgentiam, et clausis apertionem;
 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God: to comfort all that mourn:
ut praedicarem annum placabilem Domino, et diem ultionis Deo nostro; ut consolarer omnes lugentes,
 To appoint to the mourners of Sion, and to give them a crown for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, a garment of praise for the spirit of grief: and they shall be called in it the mighty ones of justice, the planting of the Lord to glorify him.
ut ponerem lugentibus Sion, et darem eis coronam pro cinere, oleum gaudii pro luctu, pallium laudis pro spiritu moeroris; et vocabuntur in ea fortes justitiae, plantatio Domini ad glorificandum.
 And they shall build the places that have been waste from of old, and shall raise up ancient ruins, and shall repair the desolate cities, that were destroyed for generation and generation.
Et aedificabunt deserta a saeculo, et ruinas antiquas erigent, et instaurabunt civitates desertas, dissipatas in generationem et generationem.
 And strangers shall stand and shall feed your flocks: and the sons of strangers shall be your husbandmen, and the dressers of your vines.
Et stabunt alieni, et pascent pecora vestra, et filii peregrinorum agricolae et vinitores vestri erunt.
 But you shall be called the priests of the Lord: to you it shall be said: Ye ministers of our God: you shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and you shall pride yourselves in their glory.
Vos autem sacerdotes Domini vocabimini, Ministri Dei nostri, dicetur vobis : fortitudinem gentium comedetis, et in gloria earum superbietis.
 For your double confusion and shame, they shall praise their part: therefore shall they receive double in their land, everlasting joy shall be unto them.
Pro confusione vestra duplici et rubore, laudabunt partem suam; propter hoc in terra sua duplicia possidebunt, laetitia sempiterna erit eis.
 For I am the Lord that love judgment, and hate robbery in a holocaust: and I will make their work in truth, and I will make a perpetual covenant with them.
Quia ego Dominus diligens judicium, et odio habens rapinam in holocausto; et dabo opus eorum in veritate, et foedus perpetuum feriam eis.
 And they shall know their seed among the Gentiles, and their offspring in the midst of peoples: all that shall see them, shall know them, that these are the seed which the Lord hath blessed.
Et scient in gentibus semen eorum, et germen eorum in medio populorum; omnes qui viderint eos cognoscent illos, quia isti sunt semen cui benedixit Dominus.
 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, and my soul shall be joyful in my God: for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation: and with the robe of justice he hath covered me, as a bridegroom decked with a crown, and as a bride adorned with her jewels.
Gaudens gaudebo in Domino, et exsultabit anima mea in Deo meo, quia induit me vestimentis salutis, et indumento justitiae circumdedit me, quasi sponsum decoratum corona, et quasi sponsam ornatam monilibus suis.
 For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth her seed to shoot forth: so shall the Lord God make justice to spring forth, and praise before all the nations.
Sicut enim terra profert germen suum, et sicut hortus semen suum germinat, sic Dominus Deus germinabit justitiam et laudem coram universis gentibus.
