NASB — Isaiah 58 — KJV

Observances of Fasts

  1aCry loudly, do not hold back;
  Raise your voice like a trumpet,
  And declare to My people their btransgression
  And to the house of Jacob their sins.
  2 “Yet they aseek Me day by day and delight to know My ways,
  As a nation that has done brighteousness
  And chas not forsaken the ordinance of their God.
  They ask Me [for] just decisions,
  They delight din the nearness of God.
  3 ‘Why have we afasted and You do not see?
  [Why] have we humbled ourselves and You do not Inotice?’
  Behold, on the bday of your fast you find [your] desire,
  And drive hard all your workers.
  4 “Behold, you fast for contention and astrife and to strike with a wicked fist.
  You do not fast like [you do] today to bmake your voice heard on high.
  5 “Is it a fast like this which I choose, a day for a man to humble himself?
  Is it for bowing Ione’s head like a reed
  And for spreading out asackcloth and ashes as a bed?
  Will you call this a fast, even an bacceptable day to the LORD?
  6 “Is this not the fast which I choose,
  To aloosen the bonds of wickedness,
  To undo the bands of the yoke,
  And to blet the oppressed go free
  And cbreak every yoke?
  7 “Is it not to adivide your bread Iwith the hungry
  And bbring the homeless poor into the house;
  When you see the cnaked, to cover him;
  And not to dhide yourself from your own flesh?
  8 “Then your alight will break out like the dawn,
  And your brecovery will speedily spring forth;
  And your crighteousness will go before you;
  The glory of the dLORD will be your rear guard.
  9 “Then you will acall, and the LORD will answer;
  You will cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’
  If you bremove the yoke from your midst,
  The Icpointing of the finger and dspeaking wickedness,
  10 And if you Iagive yourself to the hungry
  And satisfy the IIdesire of the afflicted,
  Then your blight will rise in darkness
  And your gloom [will become] like midday.
  11 “And the aLORD will continually guide you,
  And bsatisfy your Idesire in scorched places,
  And cgive strength to your bones;
  And you will be like a dwatered garden,
  And like a espring of water whose waters do not IIfail.
  12 “Those from among you will arebuild the ancient ruins;
  You will braise up the age-old foundations;
  And you will be called the repairer of the cbreach,
  The restorer of the Istreets in which to dwell.

The prophet, being sent to reprove hypocrisy,

1 ¶ Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins. 2 Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God.

expresseth a conterfeit fast and a true.

3 ¶ Wherefore have we fasted, [say they], and thou seest not? [wherefore] have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all your labours. 4 Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as [ye do this] day, to make your voice to be heard on high. 5 Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? [is it] to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes [under him]? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD? 6 [Is] not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? 7 [Is it] not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?

He declareth what promises are due unto godliness,

8 ¶ Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward. 9 Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I [am]. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity; 10 And [if] thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness [be] as the noonday: 11 And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. 12 And [they that shall be] of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.
