New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
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 grow faint or be crushed until he has established justice in the earth; and the coastlands wait for his teaching. 4 he will not falter or be discouraged till he establishes justice on earth. In his law the islands will put their hope."
5 Thus says God, the Lord, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and what comes from it, who gives breath to the people upon it and spirit to those who walk in it: 5 This is what God the LORD says-- he who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and all that comes out of it, who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it:
6 I am the Lord, I have called you in righteousness, I have taken you by the hand and kept you; I have given you as a covenant to the people, a light to the nations, 6 "I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles,
7 to open the eyes that are blind, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, from the prison those who sit in darkness. 7 to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.
8 I am the Lord, that is my name; my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to idols. 8 "I am the LORD; that is my name! I will not give my glory to another or my praise to idols.
9 See, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare; before they spring forth, I tell you of them. 9 See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you."
10 Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise from the end of the earth! Let the sea roar and all that fills it, the coastlands and their inhabitants. 10 Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise from the ends of the earth, you who go down to the sea, and all that is in it, you islands, and all who live in them.
11 Let the desert and its towns lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar inhabits; let the inhabitants of Sela sing for joy, let them shout from the tops of the mountains. 11 Let the desert and its towns raise their voices; let the settlements where Kedar lives rejoice. Let the people of Sela sing for joy; let them shout from the mountaintops.
12 Let them give glory to the Lord, and declare his praise in the coastlands. 12 Let them give glory to the LORD and proclaim his praise in the islands.
