Isaiah 58:6-7

Context

58:6 No, this is the kind of fast I want. 1 

I want you 2  to remove the sinful chains,

to tear away the ropes of the burdensome yoke,

to set free the oppressed, 3 

and to break every burdensome yoke.

58:7 I want you 4  to share your food with the hungry

and to provide shelter for homeless, oppressed people. 5 

When you see someone naked, clothe him!

Don’t turn your back on your own flesh and blood! 6 

1 tn Heb “Is this not a fast I choose?” “No” is supplied in the translation for clarification.

2 tn The words “I want you” are supplied in the translation for stylistic reasons.

3 tn Heb “crushed.”

4 tn Heb “Is it not?” The rhetorical question here expects a positive answer, “It is!”

5 tn Heb “and afflicted [ones], homeless [ones] you should bring [into] a house.” On the meaning of מְרוּדִים (mÿrudim, “homeless”) see HALOT 633 s.v. *מָרוּד.

6 tn Heb “and from your flesh do not hide yourself.”
