Isaiah 49:6–10

6 He says, “It is too 1small a thing that You should be My Servant

To raise up the tribes of Jacob and to restore the apreserved ones of Israel;

I will also make You a blight 2of the nations

So that My salvation may 3reach to the cend of the earth.”

7 Thus says the Lord, the aRedeemer of Israel and its Holy One,

To the bdespised One,

To the One abhorred by the nation,

To the Servant of rulers,

cKings will see and arise,

Princes will also dbow down,

Because of the Lord who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel who has chosen You.”

8 Thus says the Lord,

“In a afavorable time I have answered You,

And in a day of salvation I have helped You;

And I will bkeep You and cgive You for a covenant of the people,

To 1drestore the land, to make them inherit the desolate heritages;

9 Saying to those who are abound, ‘Go forth,’

To those who are in darkness, ‘Show yourselves.’

Along the roads they will feed,

And their pasture will be on all bbare heights.

10 “They will anot hunger or thirst,

Nor will the scorching bheat or sun strike them down;

For cHe who has compassion on them will dlead them

And will guide them to esprings of water.
