Isaiah 58:9-12

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; 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: 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. 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.

 

The godly one is assured that whenever they call, the LORD will answer “Here I am.” If an individual would eliminate oppression, stop pointing their finger in accusation or in scoffing, and cease from mud-slinging and slander, if they would alleviate human need, both spiritual and physical, then God promised that their night would turn to day. They would enjoy guidance, abundant supply of good things, health and strength, beauty and fruitfulness, and national restoration.
