61:9 Their descendants will be known among the nations,
their offspring among the peoples.
All who see them will recognize that
the Lord has blessed them.” 1
I will be overjoyed because of my God. 4
For he clothes me in garments of deliverance;
he puts on me a robe symbolizing vindication. 5
I look like a bridegroom when he wears a turban as a priest would;
I look like a bride when she puts on her jewelry. 6
