1 The Lord says, 1 "Here is my servant, whom I strengthen - the one I have chosen, with whom I am pleased. I have filled him with my Spirit, and he will bring justice to every nation.
2 He will not shout or raise his voice or make loud speeches in the streets.
3 He will not break off a bent reed nor put out a flickering lamp. He will bring lasting justice to all.
4 He will not lose hope or courage; he will establish justice on the earth. Distant lands eagerly wait for his teaching."
