The Mission of Yahweh’s Servant

1 Look! [here is] my servant; I hold him, my chosen one, [in whom] my soul delights. I have {put}a my spirit on him; he will bring justice forth to the nations. 2 He will not cry out and lift up and make his voice heard in the street. 3 He will not break a broken reed, and he not will extinguish a dim wick. He will bring justice forth inb faithfulness. 4 He will not grow faint, and he will not be broken until he has established justice in the earth. And [the] coastlands wait for his teaching. 5 Thus says the God, Yahweh, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and its offspring, who gives breath to the people upon it and spirit to those who walk in it. 6 "I [am] Yahweh; I have called you in righteousness, and I have grasped your hand and watched over you; and I have given you as a covenant of [the] people, as a light of [the] nations, 7 to open [the] blind eyes, to bring [the] prisoner out from [the] dungeon, those who sit [in] darkness from [the] house of imprisonment. 8 I [am] Yahweh; that [is] my name, and I do not give my glory to another, nor my praise to the idols. 9 Look! the former things have come, and I declare new things. I {announce}c [them] to you before they sprout up."
