Isn’t this the fast I choose: releasing wicked restraints, untying the ropes of a yoke, setting free the mistreated, and breaking every yoke? Isn’t it sharing your bread with the hungry and bringing the homeless poor into your house, covering the naked when you see them, and not hiding from your own family? Then your light will break out like the dawn, and you will be healed quickly. (Isaiah 58.6-8a CEB)

picture Bible commentary

By trusting in emptiness and speaking deceit, they conceive harm and give birth to malice. They … weave spiderwebs. … Their webs can’t serve as clothing; they can’t cover themselves with their deeds. Their deeds are deeds of malice, and the work of violence is in their hands. Their feet run to evil; they rush to shed innocent blood. Their thoughts are thoughts of malice; desolation and destruction litter their highways. They don’t know the way of peace; there’s no justice in their paths. They make their roads crooked; no one who walks in them knows peace. (Isaiah 59.4-8)
