And now the LORD says-- he who formed me in the womb7 to be his servant to bring Jacob back to him and gather Israel8 to himself, for I am honored9 in the eyes of the LORD and my God has been my strength10--
he says: "It is too small a thing for you to be my servant11 to restore the tribes of Jacob and bring back those of Israel I have kept.12 I will also make you a light13 for the Gentiles,14 that you may bring my salvation to the ends of the earth."15
This is what the LORD says-- the Redeemer and Holy One of Israel16-- to him who was despised17 and abhorred by the nation, to the servant of rulers: "Kings18 will see you and rise up, princes will see and bow down,19 because of the LORD, who is faithful,20 the Holy One of Israel, who has chosen21 you."
This is what the LORD says: "In the time of my favor22 I will answer you, and in the day of salvation I will help you;23 I will keep24 you and will make you to be a covenant for the people,25 to restore the land26 and to reassign its desolate inheritances,27
