Isaiah 58:3-7

Wherefore have we fasted
<06684> (8804)_,
[say they], and thou seest
<07200> (8804)
not? [wherefore] have we afflicted
<06031> (8765)
our soul
<05315>_,
and thou takest no knowledge
<03045> (8799)_?
Behold, in the day
<03117>
of your fast
<06685>
ye find
<04672> (8799)
pleasure
<02656>_,
and exact
<05065> (8799)
all your labours
<06092>_.
{labours: or, things wherewith ye grieve others: Heb. griefs}
Behold, ye fast
<06684> (8799)
for strife
<07379>
and debate
<04683>_,
and to smite
<05221> (8687)
with the fist
<0106>
of wickedness
<07562>_:
ye shall not fast
<06684> (8799)
as [ye do this] day
<03117>_,
to make your voice
<06963>
to be heard
<08085> (8687)
on high
<04791>_.
{ye shall...: or, ye fast not as this day}
Is it such a fast
<06685>
that I have chosen
<0977> (8799)_?
a day
<03117>
for a man
<0120>
to afflict
<06031> (8763)
his soul
<05315>_?
[is it] to bow down
<03721> (8800)
his head
<07218>
as a bulrush
<0100>_,
and to spread
<03331> (8686)
sackcloth
<08242>
and ashes
<0665>
[under him]? wilt thou call
<07121> (8799)
this
<02088>
a fast
<06685>_,
and an acceptable
<07522>
day
<03117>
to the LORD
<03068>_?
{a day...: or, to afflict his soul for a day?}
[Is] not this the fast
<06685>
that I have chosen
<0977> (8799)_?
to loose
<06605> (8763)
the bands
<02784>
of wickedness
<07562>_,
to undo
<05425> (8687)
the heavy
<04133>
burdens
<092>_,
and to let the oppressed
<07533> (8803)
go
<07971> (8763)
free
<02670>_,
and that ye break
<05423> (8762)
every yoke
<04133>_?
{the heavy...: Heb. the bundles of the yoke} {oppressed: Heb. broken}
[Is it] not to deal
<06536> (8800)
thy bread
<03899>
to the hungry
<07457>_,
and that thou bring
<0935> (8686)
the poor
<06041>
that are cast out
<04788>
to thy house
<01004>_?
when thou seest
<07200> (8799)
the naked
<06174>_,
that thou cover
<03680> (8765)
him; and that thou hide
<05956> (8691)
not thyself from thine own flesh
<01320>_?
{cast...: or, afflicted}
