The Lord's Chosen Servant

1 1Behold 2my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, 3in whom my soul delights; 4I have put my Spirit upon him; 5he will bring forth justice to the nations. 2 He will not cry aloud or lift up his voice, or make it heard in the street; 3 6a bruised reed he will not break, and a faintly burning wick he will not quench; 7he will faithfully bring forth justice. 4 He will not grow faint or be discourageda till he has established justice in the earth; and 8the coastlands wait for his law. 5 Thus says God, the LORD, who created the heavens 9and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and what comes from it, 10who gives breath to the people on it and spirit to those who walk in it: 6 "I am the LORD; 11I have called you in righteousness; I will take you by the hand and keep you; I will give you 12as a covenant for the people, 13a light for the nations, 7 14to open the eyes that are blind, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, 15from the prison those who sit in darkness. 8 I am the LORD; that is my name; 16my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to carved idols. 9 Behold, the former things have come to pass, 17and new things I now declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them."
