The Servant's Mission

1 "This is My Servant; I strengthen Him, [this is] My Chosen One; I delight in Him. I have put My Spirit on Him; He will bring justicea to the nations. 2 He will not cry out or shout or make His voice heard in the streets. 3 He will not break a bruised reed, and He will not put out a smoldering wick; He will faithfully bring justice. 4 He will not grow weak or be discouraged until He has established justice on earth. The islands will wait for His instruction." 5 This is what God the Lord says- who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and what comes from it, who gives breath to the people on it and lifeb to those who walk on it- 6 "I, the Lord, have called you for a righteous [purpose],c and I will hold you by your hand. I will keep you, and I make you a covenant for the people [and] a light to the nations, 7 in order to open blind eyes, to bring out prisoners from the dungeon, [and] those sitting in darkness from the prison house. 8 I am Yahweh, that is My name; I will not give My glory to another, or My praise to idols. 9 The past events have indeed happened. Now I declare new events; I announce them to you before they occur."
