"Here is my servant,1 whom I uphold, my chosen one2 in whom I delight;3 I will put my Spirit4 on him, and he will bring justice5 to the nations.62
He will not shout or cry out,7 or raise his voice in the streets.
A bruised reed8 he will not break,9 and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out.10 In faithfulness he will bring forth justice;114
he will not falter or be discouraged till he establishes justice12 on earth. In his teaching13 the islands14 will put their hope."155
This is what God the LORD says-- he who created the heavens16 and stretched them out, who spread out the earth17 with all that springs from it,18 who gives breath19 to its people, and life to those who walk on it:
"I, the LORD, have called20 you in righteousness;21 I will take hold of your hand.22 I will keep23 you and will make you to be a covenant24 for the people and a light25 for the Gentiles,267
to open eyes that are blind,27 to free28 captives from prison29 and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.308
"I am the LORD;31 that is my name!32 I will not yield my glory to another33 or my praise to idols.349
See, the former things35 have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce36 them to you."
