Isaiah 58-60

In their Law the children of Israel were to fast for one day. But when they fasted, they had time for pleasure, they exploited their labourers, and indeed they fasted for strife and debate and to strike with fists of wickedness. Yet for show, they bowed down their heads like bulrushes and they spread out sack cloths and ashes when they fasted. They asked God, "Why have we fasted and You have not seen? Why have we afflicted our souls, and you take no notice?" The fast that God had chosen for them was to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, to break every yoke, to share their bread with the hungry, to bring the outcast to their houses and to clothe the naked. Then light would shine for them, healing would come speedily, their righteousness would go before them, the glory of the LORD would be their rear guard. The Lord said, that then they would call the LORD and He would say to them, "Here I am." The rebellious think they owe God nothing and have nothing to give Him. They do not know that they owe God their lives and that everything they possess belongs to God. They cease to be wise and they do abominable things. May God grant you to fast according to His will and achieve your purpose and remain blessed.
