God's Promise concerning His Servant

1 "1Behold, My 2Servant, whom I auphold; My 3chosen one in whom My 4soul delights. I have put My 5Spirit upon Him; He will bring forth 6justice to the bnations. 2 "He will not cry out or raise His voice, Nor make His voice heard in the street. 3 "A bruised reed He will not break And a dimly burning wick He will not extinguish; He will faithfully bring forth 7justice. 4 "He will not be 8disheartened or crushed Until He has established justice in the earth; And the 9coastlands will wait expectantly for His claw." 5 Thus says God the LORD, Who 10created the heavens and 11stretched them out, Who spread out the 12earth and its doffspring, Who 13gives breath to the people on it And spirit to those who walk in it, 6 "I am the LORD, I have 14called You in righteousness, I will also 15hold You by the hand and 16watch over You, And I will appoint You as a 17covenant to the people, As a 18light to the nations, 7 To 19open blind eyes, To 20bring out prisoners from the dungeon And those who dwell in darkness from the prison . 8 "21I am the LORD, that is 22My name; I will not give My 23glory to another, Nor My praise to egraven images. 9 "Behold, the 24former things have come to pass, Now I declare 25new things; Before they spring forth I proclaim them to you." 10 Sing to the LORD a 26new song, Sing His praise from the 27end of the earth! 28You who go down to the sea, and 29all that is in it. You 30islands, and those who dwell on them. 11 Let the 31wilderness and its cities lift up their voices, The settlements where 32Kedar inhabits. Let the inhabitants of 33Sela sing aloud, Let them shout for joy from the tops of the 34mountains. 12 Let them 35give glory to the LORD And declare His praise in the 36coastlands. 13 37The LORD will go forth like a warrior, He will arouse His 38zeal like a man of war. He will utter a shout, yes, He will raise a war cry. He will 39prevail against His enemies.
