Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights; I have put my Spirit upon him, he will bring forth justice to the nations. 1 "Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him and he will bring justice to the nations.
2 He will not cry or lift up his voice, or make it heard in the street; 2 He will not shout or cry out, or raise his voice in the streets.
3 a bruised reed he will not break, and a dimly burning wick he will not quench; he will faithfully bring forth justice. 3 A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out. In faithfulness he will bring forth justice;
4 He will not fail or be discouraged till he has established justice in the earth; and the coastlands wait for his law. 4 he will not falter or be discouraged till he establishes justice on earth. In his law the islands will put their hope."
