56:11 The dogs have big appetites;
they are never full. 1
They are shepherds who have no understanding;
they all go their own way,
each one looking for monetary gain. 2
58:10 You must 3 actively help the hungry
and feed the oppressed. 4
Then your light will dispel the darkness, 5
and your darkness will be transformed into noonday. 6
