Isaiah 58:7-8

Context

58:7 I want you 1  to share your food with the hungry

and to provide shelter for homeless, oppressed people. 2 

When you see someone naked, clothe him!

Don’t turn your back on your own flesh and blood! 3 

58:8 Then your light will shine like the sunrise; 4 

your restoration will quickly arrive; 5 

your godly behavior 6  will go before you,

and the Lord’s splendor will be your rear guard. 7
