Context Readings

The Year Of Yahweh's Favor

5 And strangers have stood and fed your flock, Sons of a foreigner are your husbandmen, And your vine-dressers. 6 And ye are called 'Priests of Jehovah,' 'Ministers of our God,' is said of you, The strength of nations ye consume, And in their honour ye do boast yourselves. 7 Instead of your shame and confusion, A second time they sing of their portion, Therefore in their land A second time do they take possession, Joy age-during is for them.
