27. What wonderful promises are made to those who thus minister to the wants and distresses of others?


"Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and your health shall spring forth speedily: and thy
righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy rearward. Then shall thou call, and the
Lord shall answer; thou shall 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 shall be
like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not." Verses 8-11.
